My Utmost For His Highest : "Not By Might Nor By Power"

December 3, 2011

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing
words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the
Spirit and of power.
1 Corinthians 2:4
If in preaching the Gospel you substitute your clear knowledge of the
way of salvation for confidence in the power of the Gospel, you
hinder people getting to Reality. You have to see that while you
proclaim your knowledge of the way of salvation, you yourself are
rooted and grounded in faith in God. Never rely on the clearness of
your exposition, but as you give your exposition see that you are
relying on the Holy Spirit. Rely on the certainty of God's redemptive
power, and He will create His own life in souls.
When once you are rooted in Reality, nothing can shake you. If your
faith is in experiences, any thing that happens is likely to upset
that faith; but nothing can ever upset God or the almighty Reality of
Redemption; base your faith on that, and you are as eternally secure
as God. When once you get into personal contact with Jesus Christ,
you will never be moved again. That is the meaning of sanctification.
God puts His disapproval on human experience when we begin to adhere
to the conception that sanctification is merely an experience, and
forget that sanctification itself has to be sanctified (see John
17:19). I have deliberately to give my sanctified life to God for His
service, so that He can use me as His hands and His feet.
