|Nuts to Crack|
by C. H. Spurgeon
From the November 1874 Sword and Trowel
HE CHRISTIAN is one who is to be plainly seen, and yet his life is hidden; he is a man in the world, but not a man of the world; he converses with other men, and yet his conversation is in heaven.
He is one who lives to die, and dies to live; yet he is dead while he lives, and lives when he dies.
He is one who lives in another, and for another; he seeks not himself when he aims most at his own good; God is his all, and his all is God; he aims at no end but the glory of God, of which there is no end.
