Pleasing Grief

With pleasing grief, and mournful joy,
My spirit now is fill’d,
That I should such a life destroy,
Yet live by Him I kill’d!

John Newton's words are true, although they seem paradoxical to someone without a new heart.  The carnal man cannot understand the things of the Spirit of God.  

The Christian lives IN CHRIST.  Christ lives in him.
