Blessed To Be In Christ
Blessed it is to be really in Him. No awakened soul should stop short of a realization and experimental enjoyment of union with the Lord. No converted soul should rest satisfied till it think every thought and speak every word in communion with Jesus. This would seem to a carnal professor, or to a child of God who is still to a great extent carnal, a standard far too high, but to have a lower standard is to be ignorant of our standing in Christ, of what we have in Him, of the closeness of our union with Him, and of the character we should maintain to be in keeping with our profession of faith in His name.
William H. Hewitson (1812-1850), as cited by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones in, The Unsearchable Riches of Christ: An Exposition of Ephesians 3, p.245
