A QUOTE……J.N. Darby

“Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves
likewise with the same mind [Phil. 2:5,8]: for he that hath suffered in the flesh
hath ceased [released from sin nature] from sin. That he no longer should
live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.”
1 Peter 4:1-2

“Now it is the same thing with respect to ourselves in daily life. If I suffer in the flesh,
the will of the flesh is assuredly not in action; and the flesh, in that I suffer, is practically
dead-I have nothing more to do with sins. We then are freed from it, have done with it,
and are at rest. If we are content to suffer, the will does not act; sin is not there, as to
fact; for to suffer is not will, it is grace acting in accordance with the image and the mind
of Christ in the new man; and we are freed from the action of the old man. It does not act;
we rest from it; we have done with it, no longer to live, for the remainder of our life here
below in the flesh, according to the lusts of man, but according to the will of God, which
the new man follows.” 1Peter.4 JND
