“What separation from the world, what brave holiness, what self-denial, what heavenly
walking with God ought to be seen in those who are chosen to be a peculiar people,
the representatives of God on earth, and courtiers of the new Jerusalem above! As
the world waxes worse and worse, it becomes men of God to become better and better.
If sinners stoop lower, saints must rise higher, and show them that a regenerate
life cannot share in the general corruption.”
