My Utmost For His Highest : "The Light That Fails"

April 22, 2012


We all with open face beholding ... the glory of the
2 Corinthians 3:18
A servant of God must stand so much alone that he never knows he is
alone. In the first phases of Christian life disheartenments come,
people who used to be lights flicker out, and those who used to stand
with us pass away. We have to get so used to it that we never know we
are standing alone. "All men forsook me . . notwithstanding the Lord
stood with me" (2 Tim. 4:16-17). We must build our faith, not on the
fading light, but on the light that never fails. When "big" men go we
are sad, until we see that they are meant to go, the one thing that
remains is looking in the face of God for ourselves.
Allow nothing to keep you from looking God sternly in the face about
yourself and about your doctrine, and every time you preach see that
you look God in the face about things first, then the glory will
remain all through. A Christian worker is one who perpetually looks
in the face of God and then goes forth to talk to people. The
characteristic of the ministry of Christ is that of unconscious glory
that abides. "Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he
talked with Him."
We are never called on to parade our doubts or to express the hidden
ecstasies of our life with God. The secret of the worker's life is
that he keeps in tune with God all the time.
