ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
"This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so
that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
FAITH IN OTHER'S FAITH [part
2 of 3] * Everyone that partaketh of milk ; that is, lives in the realm of the Senses and is dependent upon Sense evidence instead of the Word, has had no experience in the Word of Righteousness. He is still a babe. What does it mean? Those people who have
been healed by someone else's faith for years, have reached a place where God demands that they have faith of their own.
If they are unwilling to study the Word, unwilling to develop their faith life, they
will turn to the "arm of flesh" and suffer the penalty that naturally follows. God expects every one of us to have experience in the Word of Righteousness. In other words, that we have experience of our own in praying for sick folks, in proclaiming the Word,
in leading men to Christ, in unveiling the Word. Colossians 1:12 "Giving thanks unto the Father, who made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light." Here is a better translation.
thanks unto the Father, who has given US the ability to enjoy our share of the inheritance of the saints in light." He has delivered you out of the authority of darkness. He has recreated your spirit. Now He is ready to renew your mind so that you may understand
your privileges and rights in Christ. It belongs to you. You have a right to it. You should enjoy it instead of being dependent upon someone else's faith. You have a faith of your own now. What an hour it would be if those who read this book should declare,
"By the grace of God. I will have my own faith."
You have a right to it. It belongs to you. You have the same Holy Spirit that I have, the same Holy Spirit that Jesus had, and that the Apostles had. You
have the same Eternal Life, the same Righteousness, the same ability. The Father has no favorites. All these things belong to every one of us, so we need not be barren or unfruitful.
