Or, to illustrate the subject from more homely, universally known facts, the strong working of this assimilating power of the soul will not be doubted by any who have noticed how in daily life we continually fashion each other, and are fashioned by those we are with; who have observed the contagion of custom in a community, the transfer of manners, the mutual likeness often obtaining both of moral traits and visible expression between husband and wife, and more or less all the dwellers under a single roof, and, in short, the transforming force upon our own hearts from the scenes we enter, the presence we stand in, the books we read, the images we contemplate. Never mind though you act badly at first. This is a figurative expression for an interest in Christ, union with Him, and conformity to Him.1. Owe no one anything, except to love one another.

Obedience, as the sandals.III. Break with your past self; come to Christ for strength, and by prayer to Him and earnestly seeking Him, be quickened and transformed. HOW IT IS TO BE CARRIED OUT. "To put on Christ"; "to be found in Him, not having our own righteousness"; to be "clothed" with His meekness and humility; to have "His spirit," and "the same mind in us that was also in Him"; to open our hearts for His "abode," and have Him "formed within us, the hope of glory" — who but recognises at once, in this so controverted and abused language, the burden of the New Testament? Bartol. It would not do to speak thus of any one else, however distinguished. (iii)By this He expiated our sins, and purchased righteousness for us (1 John 2:2). Do we not see a very familiar display of it in the genius of the poet, by which he conceives of characters — creatures of his imagination, yet true to nature — distinguished from one another and from himself in their modes of thought and actuating passions, and, through all the variety of situations in which they may be placed, severally well sustained? That Christ may be glorified by us. That we may experience religious peace and joy, by making it clear to ourselves that we belong to Him. Ever beautiful. To put on Christ is to put on —1. Nevertheless(1) There were things in Christ we cannot and must not imitate. Certainly one grand end of the appearance of Christ in our nature, was to set us an example of blamelessness, usefulness, holiness (John 12:26; Colossians 2:6; 1 Peter 2:21; 1 John 2:6). Sacred historian, psalmist, and prophet are continually figuring certain characters before our minds as examples or warnings. "How comes it," asked a bishop of Garrick, "that I, in expounding Divine truths, produce so little effect, while you so easily rouse the deepest feelings of your audience by the representation of your fiction?"

Christ is infinitely lovable.2. This is to put on the wedding garment; the want of this, in the day when the King comes in to see the guests, will leave a man speechless! Communion with God will keep us right in our fellowship with man.3. The words are addressed to a Christian Church, who have received the gospel. Others have acted their part well.3. The justice we admire, the charity we love, the holy zeal and endurance we revere, the fervent adoration and self-devotion which makes our hearts burn — all these we possess and become. An internal application of Him. This is a figurative expression for an interest in Christ, union with Him, and conformity to Him.1. We have not Christ's personal religion which had no repentance. It constitutes the most solid and satisfactory proof of inward religion. Eminent orators have studied Demosthenes and Cicero. Here we distinguish between an example and a pattern.

Ah, but there is yet another and more blessed meaning of "putting on Christ," and it is TO BE FOUND IN HIM; not trusting in our own righteousness which is as filthy rags, but BEING CLAD IN THE WHITE ROBE OF HIS FORGIVING GRACE.

When Kemble made his first appearance he was laughed down; so was Disraeli.4. His humility and self-denial.2. "Beholding as in a glass," etc. Sin has stripped the soul of its true attire, and three things mark its history everywhere.1. His purity and fervent zeal.II. TEMPERATELY — subjecting —1. From the time that our first parents sewed their fig leaves, every, soul has been busy at some garment. Humility, as the tunic, always worn, fitting the body close.2. Thomas, D.D. Those who believe in Christ, and are reconciled to God by Him, are required to put Him on. Thus the Divine graces of His character are not impressed in the way of mere commandment alone; but, as the beauty of the landscape and the fragrance of flowers possess our outward senses, so these finer influences sink into the deeper perceptions of the spirit.

Keep it well, then; you are to see the King in it.(J. A CHURCH DRESS, because —1. Guard against its occasions.2. It is the best preparation for the day of His coming, when they only who are like Him will be able to see Him as He is.(T. Communion with God will keep us right in our fellowship with man.3.

In order to obey the will of God you cannot adopt any method so simple and sure as to inquire, "How can I this day act in a manner most consonant to the mind of Christ?"II. We shall not be tempted as He was; but the same parts of our nature will be assailed; and we can learn to resist as He resisted, with the sword of the Spirit. One great end of His obedience unto death was that He might leave us an example whose steps we might follow. If we succeed with this, we have done everything. It shrinks from the eye of scrutiny.2. (3)Hope of glory.2. Mortify its lusts.(J. Love what Christ loved, hate what Christ hated. The words are addressed to a Christian Church, who have received the gospel.

This man being a Christian, he wished to befriend him; he told him if he would go home with him, he would give him a suit of clothes. Seasons of special self-examination as to likeness or unlikeness to Christ.6. He who has no higher ambition than to get through his part will never be a good actor. Lyth, D.D. We are constantly putting on the characters of others. For defence against error, sin, misery, the wrath of God, an accusing conscience, and all the consequences of neglect.4. It might not be right for us to go into the company of sinners as He did, nor employ His terrible invectives; but we can cherish the spirit which led Him to seek the lost, and sympathise with His repugnance to evil.

(2)Ground of justification. Whoever conceals his religion must accept the consequence. In the same way a mere simulated likeness to Christ may be put on a dead spiritual nature; but this, so far from representing Him, presents only an aggravated image of His worst enemies whom He denounced as "whited sepulchres." Toput on Christ is to endeavour to be like Him, to have Him on is to succeed in the attempt. And wherein is the sense of this language, if not in the appropriation of His worth to our nature, by the force of sympathy, and of a twofold spiritual consciousness operating to unite Him to ourselves?

From the child that is taught to speak the sentiments of some saint or martyr in his earliest declamations at school, to the grave debater in legislative halls; from the narrator at the fireside, to the lively rehearser of inspired pages of human composition, or the edifying reader of the sacred Word of God, what do we see throughout but this very endeavour of the soul to personate and put on the meaning and feeling of some other character, and, so far as it is understood and believed to be a noble character, to adopt, appropriate, and live over again its nobleness?
