Example text

At first we honestly think that we do have to accomplish everything ourselves, and are confident that we can do it without any help. This stage is probably necessary, for we all have to learn self-reliance and develop self-confidence, before we can pass on to the much higher stage of entire dependence upon God. But there comes a time when we are not as sure that we, of ourselves, can do everything. Indeed there comes a time when we realize that, of ourselves, we can do nothing. Most students think, when they meet with this experience, that they must have gone wrong somewhere.

As soon as trouble appears we commence to pray for it to be taken away. That is if we do not know better. Thus I have known a person to be in Australia, praying frantically to be taken to England; and, at the same time, for a person in England to be praying just as energetically to be taken to Australia. Both were trying their hardest, without knowing it, to increase the disorder of their respective lives. They were both led astray by the assumption that there was something wrong which therefore must be put right.

Father, I have sinned and am no more worthy to be called Thy son,’’ is the burden of our cry. And when we are yet a great way off, our Father meets us, forgives us and admits us to His own house. But it is a long journey back. We can be admitted only when we have become entirely at-one with the Father’s Will. ’’ (Matt. ) 42 HENRY THOMAS HAMBLIN THE LIFE OF THE SPIRIT Chapter 17 THE WAY OF LIFE II — IN order to find the Kingdom we have to put into practice our Lord’s teaching, and to follow Him all the way.
