“Christ’s body was brought without the camp: the sign that that is our place too.
Heaven has received Him and us in Him: we belong there.
The world has cast Him without the camp, and us with Him: we belong there.
In heaven we share His honour; on earth His reproach. Let us therefore go forth unto Him, without the camp, bearing His reproach.
1. Separated from the world, separated unto God—the negative and the positive side of the Christian life; inseparably and most blessedly joined to each other. if we die with Him we shall also live with Him.
2. There is perhaps no greater need in our day than that God should open the eyes of His people to the solemn truth that the so-called Christian world is the very same world that rejected Christ, We are to bear to it the same relation He did.”
