God expects those who bear the name of Christ to represent Him…. They are to be a sanctified, purified, holy people, communicating light to all with whom they come in contact….
The power of a higher, purer, nobler life is our great need. The world is watching to see what fruit is borne by professed Christians…. Impressions favorable or unfavorable to Bible religion are constantly being made on the minds of all with whom we have to do.
And God and the angels are watching. God desires His people to show by their lives the advantage of Christianity over worldliness, to show that they are working on a high, holy plane. He longs to see them showing that the truth they have received has made them children of the heavenly King. He longs to make them channels through which He can pour His boundless love and mercy.
