Philippians 3:14 (KJV)
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.


Before a sinful man can think a right thought of God, there must have been a work of enlightenment done within him; imperfect it may be, but a true work nonetheless, and the secret cause of all desiring and seeking and praying which may follow.

In this divine "upholding" and human "following" there is NO CONTRADICTION. All is of God, for as von Hugel teaches, GOD IS ALWAYS PREVIOUS.

Paul confessed the mainspring of his life to be his burning desire after Christ. "That I may know Him," was the goal of his heart, and to this he sacrificed everything.

This is deep calling unto deep, and (only) the longing heart will understand it.

The doctrine of justification by faith -a (central) Biblical truth, and a blessed relief from sterile legalism and unavailing self-effort has in our time fallen into evil company and been interpreted by many in such manner as actually to bar men from the knowledge of God.

Faith may now be exercised without a jar to the moral life and without embarrassment to the Adamic ego.

Christ may be "received" without creating any special love for Him in the soul of the receiver. The man is "saved," but he not hungry nor thirsty after God.

EVERYTHING IS MADE TO CENTER UPON THE INITIAL ACT OF "ACCEPTING" CHRIST (a term, incidentally, which is not found in the Bible) and we are not expected thereafter to crave any further revelation of God to our souls.

WE HAVE BEEN SNARED IN THE COILS OF THE SPURIOUS LOGIC WHICH INSISTS THAT IF WE HAVE FOUND HIM WE NEED NO MORE SEEK HIM.

(These excerpts are taken from the first chapter of Pursuit of God, first published in 1948).

Go into today remembering that what consistently undermines and corrupts the liberating and transforming gospel of grace is 'cheap grace': forgiveness without repentance, and salvation without consecration.
