Quote from John Brown on Galatians on Union with Christ.

Christ died, and in him I died; Christ revived and in him I revived. I am a dead man with regard to the law, but I am a living man in regard to Christ. The law has killed me, and by doing so, it has set me free from itself. I have no more to do with the law. The life I have now is not the life of a man under the law, but the life of a man delivered from the law; having died and risen again with Christ Jesus, Christ’s righteousness justifies me, Christ’s spirit animates me. My relations to God are his relations. The influences under which I live are the influences under which he lives. Christ’s views are my views; Christ’s feelings are my feelings. He is the soul of my soul, the life of my life. My state, my sentiments, my feelings, my conduct are all Christian (Brown, Galatians, p. 97).
