Pristine Grace

A New Creature
by Henry Mahan

    The Apostle said, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature” (2 Corinthians 5:17). The grace of God and love for Christ throbs in a man’s pulse. It looks out of his eyes; it lights up his countenance; it softens his touch; it mellows his voice; it bows his head; it bends his knee; it opens his hand; it curbs his tongue; it humbles his heart; it orders his steps; it gives him a hearing ear, a forgiving spirit and a lasting peace. Who, but God, can accomplish such a work? We are indeed “His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).
