THE RIGHT LINES OF WORK
I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me.
John 12:32

Very few of us have any understanding of the reason why Jesus Christ
died. If sympathy is all that human beings need, then the Cross of
Christ is a farce, there was no need for it. What the world needs is
not "a little bit of love," but a surgical operation.
When you are face to face with a soul in difficulty spiritually,
remind yourself of Jesus Christ on the Cross. If that soul can get to
God on any other line, then the Cross of Jesus Christ is unnecessary.
If you can help others by your sympathy or understanding, you are a
traitor to Jesus Christ. You have to keep your soul rightly related
to God and pour out for others on His line, not pour out on the human
line and ignore God. The great note to-day is amiable religiosity.
The one thing we have to do is to exhibit Jesus Christ crucified, to
lift Him up all the time. Every doctrine that is not imbedded in the
Cross of Jesus will lead astray. If the worker himself believes in
Jesus Christ and is banking on the Reality of Redemption, the people
he talks to must be concerned. The thing that remains and deepens is
the worker's simple relationship to Jesus Christ; his usefulness to
God depends on that and that alone.
The calling of a New Testament worker is to uncover sin and to reveal
Jesus Christ as Saviour, consequently he cannot be poetical, he must
be sternly surgical. We are sent by God to lift up Jesus Christ, not
to give wonderfully beautiful discourses. We have to probe straight
down as deeply as God has probed us, to be keen in sensing the
Scriptures which bring the truth straight home and to apply them
fearlessly.
