We should walk in newness of life. - Romans 6:4

All who profess Christ are supposed to possess a new nature; they are brought under new obligations; and are expected to keep new objects in view.

Being baptized into the death of Christ, and participating in His resurrection, they should walk as influenced by new principles; the free grace, holy truth, and divine power of God, should lead them to newness of life. They should walk by new rules, no longer following custom, or imitating the world; they should walk according to God's word, the Saviour's golden rule, and bright example.

The love of God, gratitude to God, and zeal for His glory, should be the motives from which they act; while to honour God, to enjoy His presence, to exalt Jesus, to benefit others, to prove the power and purity of their principles, to justify their profession, and to evidence their faith and love, should be the ends they have constantly in view.

A new life is expected from new creatures; and without it our religion is vain, and our profession a falsehood. Beloved, do we walk in newness of life?

Jesus, my life! Thyself apply,
Thy Holy Spirit breathe;
My vile affections crucify,
Conform me to Thy death,
Teach me to keep the heavenly path,
And conquer sin and hell by faith.
