“To have no confidence in the flesh is the hardest, and perhaps the last thing learned by any saint of God.
And in most, how many lessons! How severe the discipline! Yea, how persevering the patience of the Father, until the necessary process is completed, and the sentence of death is finally pronounced by the believer upon his “old man” (Romans 6:6)!
To this point EVERY growing believer must be brought. The flesh shall not boast in His Presence: NO glorying there but in the Cross of Jesus Christ, our Lord.”
