CRUCIFIED THE FLESHREV. HENRY KING, M.A. GALATIANS Y. 34. And them that are Christ's have crucified the flesh, with the affections and the lusts. HERE is a very remarkable analogy, most accurately laid down in Holy Scripture, be-tween the sufferings and conduct of the great Head of the spiritual church of God, and the sufferings and conduct of every individual member of the same.

Now, my brethren, I would ask you. Do you think you are really Christ's disciples be-cause you bear his name ? Do you think you can be Christians, and you strangers to these things ? Can he be a Christian who has never
