"Christians who shine by reflecting the light of the sun of Righteousness shine with the same sort of brightness, the same mild, sweet, and pleasant beams. These lamps of the spiritual temple, that are enkindled by fire from heaven, burn with the same sort of flame. The branch is of the same nature with the stock and root, has the same sap, and bears the same sort of fruit. The members have the same kind of life with the head. It would be strange if Christians should not be of the same temper and spirit that Christ is of, when they are His flesh and His bone, yea, are one spirit, 1 Cor. vi. 17; and so live, that it is not they that live but Christ that lives in them. A Christian spirit is Christ's mark that he sets upon the souls of his people; His seal in their foreheads, bearing his image and superscription."
