Quite a New Fabric

Colourful fabric in Chinatowns market streets (6491927451)“A carnal person may have some shreds of good morality, but he is never good throughout the whole cloth. Conversion is not a repairing of the the old building; but it takes all down, and erects a new structure. It is not the sewing on of a patch of holiness; but with the true convert, holiness is woven into all his powers, principle and practice. The sincere Christian is quite a new fabric, from the foundation to the top-stone. He is a new man, a new creature; all things are become new (2 Cor 5:17). Conversion is a deep work, a heart work. It makes a new man in a new world. It extends to the whole man, to the mind, to the members, to the motions of the whole life.”

~ An Alarm to the Unconverted, Joseph Alleine
