The image and reflection of Christ!
(From Winslow's, "A Full Christ for Empty Sinners")
As Christ is taken into our hearts by faith,
He becomes a part of our moral nature, an
integrated element of our spiritual being.
Consequently we grow Christ-like, or rather,
Christ grows in us. We become more holy, more
meek, more gentle, more humble; in a word,
the image of our Lord is more developed in
us, and we grow less man-like and more
God-like; and the quietness of our spirit, and
the courtesy of our demeanor, and the lowliness
of our minds, and the gentle, winning sweetness
of our whole carriage and speech are but the
image and reflection of Christ!
