Charles Simeon on the urgency of living a Christian life worthy of imitation:
“We should bear in mind, that the honour of God is greatly affected by our conduct; and that our fellow-creatures also may either be ‘won by our good conversation,’ or be eternally ruined by our misconduct. We should, from these considerations, take especial care never to lay a stumbling-block in the way of others; but so to walk, that we may be able to say unto all around us, ‘Whatsoever ye have seen and heard in me, do; and the God of peace shall be with you.’”
– Charles Simeon, Horae Homileticae: Philippians to 1 Timothy. Vol. 18 (London: Holdworth and Ball, 1832-1836), 283.
