Below is a brief excerpt from a 92 page pamphlet from 1970. I have been reading this small booklet slowly. I would count it as a brief yet healthy read.
There are times when you might find the writer placing his thoughts alongside Scripture, in a manner you disagree. I disagree with portions of most books I read. Overall, I think his discussion on the importance of the moral law and his takeaways from the story of the rich young ruler are of great benefit to the modern reader.
It has been said, “Truth is the strong thing; let man’s life be true.” In our broken and depraved world, man is born and instantly surrounded by a wealth of fallacies and untruth. We have inherited sinfulness, and we walk in it as the human race, defying the God who is there.
This sin unceasingly puts us at odds with our Maker, who also died to be our Savior; the One who is Lord of all. Our only hope lies not in ourselves, but in Christ Jesus. In light of the previous quote and reality, I will add this note. “Repentance is the avenue of humility, the only way by which we arrive at, receive and abide in ‘the strong thing.”
This, through Christ alone.
