"Not by Sight"
It is a great time to live upon this old earth, especially because more people now have opportunity to be taught what to do to be saved than ever before in the history of humanity. This is true because of two reasons:
Actually we haven't done much for Christ when we do only that which we know we can do. And it doesn't do much for us either; for there isn't much joy in doing only what our own human reasoning can anticipate. But when we reach back into these truly spiritual reserves to take the gospel out (or send it out) in action that is entirely the result of faith, then joy unspeakable results.
To my preaching brethren I ask, "Is your work a faith action, or do you engage only in that which you know you can do?" And as you influence the congregation by your teaching, do you challenge them to go forward in faithor are you content to praise them for doing what all of you know you can do?
