Question 30.40:  What improvement ought both saints and sinners to make of the doctrine of union with Christ?

Answer: Saints ought to evidence that Christ is in them, by endeavouring that his image shine forth in their conversation, studying to “walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing,” Col 1:10; and Sinners ought to seek after this happy relation to Christ, while he is yet standing at their door and knocking, Rev 3:20; and while the gates of the city of refuge are not yet closed, Zech 9:12.
