BookThe Law Of Faith: 7. The Law of Transmutation
      WE have not scrupled to show in some detail the ramifications of the independent self in the most earnest of God's servants. We have done so because a thorough insight into our own nature is the essential preliminary to a vital experience of "the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus" which makes us free from the law of sin and death. This also ...read
The Law Of Faith: 8. From Elementary to Advanced Faith
      WE must examine this matter more closely. We are beginning now to touch on a subject, which has caused divisions in the Church. We must face it carefully and squarely, this subject of sanctification, holiness, the victorious life, the fullness of the Spirit, or whatever name we call it. Names apart, it will for ever be a subject of life and death i ...read
The Law Of Faith: 9. The Swaying Battle of Faith
      APPLY now the secret that Peter had learned to our subject - sanctification by faith, (Acts 26:18) the purifying of the heart by faith, (Acts 15:9) crucifixion, burial and resurrection, with Christ by faith, (Col. 2:12) Christ dwelling in hearts by faith. (4 Eph. 3:17) We face a given set of statements of fact in Christ, pronounced as such by the a ...read
The Law Of Faith: 10. Full Assurance of Faith
      HOW, then, do we scale this ladder of faith, and pass through the various stages from little to perfected believing? Some years ago we described in a pamphlet the struggles of the soul that goes through with God, and we will repeat here: God says, "Reckon yourselves dead indeed unto sin and alive unto God." But facts are simply against it! We ar ...read
The Law Of Faith: 11. Two Testimonies
      TWO quite recent and unsolicited testimonies have come our way which particularly illustrate the hunger in the hearts of many Christian people for a fuller life than they experience at conversion. They are worth quoting: one from a householder, wife, mother, and active Christian worker; the other from a young minister of a great denomination. The l ...read
The Law Of Faith: 12. The Varied Teachings of the Fullness of the Spirit
      DEFINITIONS of this deeper level of Christian experience, as well as the way of apprehending it, have sharply divided the most earnest seekers after Christ's fullness. Some say [1] as we have just pointed out, that the believer has all in Christ at regeneration; there is no second crisis. These then say that there is a gradual growth in Him, coexte ...read
The Law Of Faith: 13. The Centrality of the Will
      MAN'S freedom of will [1] is the central point of his creation in the image of God. It is this that makes him a son and not a creature. God has in him his "fellow" with whom He can have "fellowship", not a. relationship of mechanical compulsion, but the loving intercourse of free hearts and minds. Whose plate was to create man and then leave him ...read
The Law Of Faith: 14. Temptation and Its Beneficial Effects
      NOWHERE is the true significance of temptation more clearly seen than in the historic forty days on the mount of temptation. There "see the Christ stand" we might say with Browning. We watch that tremendous scene, the last Adam, the Word made flesh, come to fight and win the battle that the first Adam lost. We see Him with His human instincts, pass ...read
The Law Of Faith: 15. Temptation Analyzed
      FROM this one perfect insight given us into the meaning and mastery of temptation, we learn several important points. One is that temptations met and mastered are the only high road to stabilization of character and spiritual progress. Temptations always touch the vulnerable point. That is their chief use, as well as their great danger. In a two-wa ...read
The Law Of Faith: 16. Faith in the Daily Life
      IT is obvious from an examination of the Bible record, both in the Old and the New Testament, that in the lives of the men of God there was invariably a background of fully-functioning faith, we might almost call it a technique of faith, to all their activities. We say fully-functioning faith, because the simple word faith (together with the other ...read
The Law Of Faith: 17. Speaking the Word of Faith
      NOW all these varied examples of faith from both Old and New Testaments, including a great number more not mentioned, have one focal point. If the process of faith be likened to climbing a mountain (although it is not too good an illustration), then the summit is the same in every single case. To understand the route, reach the top and enjoy the vi ...read
The Law Of Faith: 18. What Is Clear Guidance In Major Matters?
      SUCH a bold use of the word of faith however must obviously raise one query in our minds which needs most careful examination. How and when can I, a mere mortal, dare to declare with certainty that God will do this or that? Must I not always add: "If it is His will?" And does not that immediately make such a declaration of faith impossible, for the ...read
The Law Of Faith: 19. What Is Clear Guidance In Minor Matters?
      WE have now examined the way "the Word of the Lord" comes to us in matters of decisive importance. But, for many, it is in the more ordinary affairs of everyday life that they find such difficulty in knowing the will of God, and in having any conception about the things that they could confidently take by faith. There is a household need of food, o ...read
The Law Of Faith: 20. False Faith
      LIKE anything else, such truths concerning finding God's will can be abused. But so could Paul's emphasis on justification by faith. He did not, however, for that reason refrain from stating the truth. He knew that if there were a few who would turn the grace of God into lasciviousness, misinterpreting liberty as license, there were multitudes of o ...read
The Law Of Faith: 21. Strategy In Faith
      BUT to return to our subject, on speaking the word of faith. If we are to do so, if we are to be bold in believing that in many circumstances of our daily life what we want is what He wants us to have,[1] for He is working in us to will and to do of His good pleasure, then there remains one important prerequisite. Nothing is easier in the rough ...read
The Law Of Faith: 22. Unproductive Faith
      ONE problem of importance remains. What about the baffling occasions when the stand of faith is taken and nothing happens? All people of faith have such experiences, times when either no answer comes, or only a partial one. A common explanation is to say that God's answer has been "No". This is unsatisfactory. It is not much' more than a neat si ...read
The Law Of Faith: 23. An Example of a Revolutionized Faith
      A YOUNG Christian leader in the U. S.A., whose life and ministry have been greatly enriched by a fuller understanding of the principles of faith and prayer, wrote to a fellow-worker about the lessons he had been learning. The letter was not meant for publication, and possibly some things in it need qualification; but it glows with the enthusiasm of ...read
The Law Of Faith: 24. Harmonious Relationships With Things
      LIFE is response to environment, and man's environment is on three levels, spiritual, social, material. Harmonious living means that man has learned the way of right relationships with God, with people, with things. Now, a relationship implies a recognition of mutual rights, both sides in a relationship have a life of their own and a standing of th ...read
The Law Of Faith: 25. Harmonious Relationships With People
      THE question of our relationships with people is so important that we think it is worth a most careful examination. There is nothing upon which we Christians put more emphasis than on the need of unity. There is nothing that we are quicker to deplore than examples of division. Yet the fact is that to live in free, open, happy relationships with oth ...read
The Law Of Faith: 26. The Underlying Law of Fruitbearing Faith
      THE life in the Spirit is bound to have one hall-mark that the nature of God is reproduced in the personality handed over to Him; for such a handing-over implies total immersion in and possession by the Spirit of God, to be made like Himself, and He is God. God's nature has one essential characteristic. He is totally self-giving. He pours Himself o ...read
