Lesson 12: Dying Like a Seed

All who would bring forth fruit as workers together with Christ must first fall into the ground and die. The life must be cast into the furrow of the world’s need. Self-love, self-interest, must perish. But the law of selfsacrifice is the law of self-preservation. The seed buried in the ground produces fruit, and [...]

Blessed are [...]

Lesson 9: A Life of Praise

Take the word of Christ as your assurance. Has He not invited you to come unto Him? Never allow yourself to talk in a hopeless, discouraged way. If you do you will lose much. By looking at appearances and complaining when difficulties and pressure come, you give evidence of [an] enfeebled faith. Talk and [...]

Lesson 6: Struggling with All Energy

Why is it that religion occupies so little of our attention, while the world has the strength of brain, bone, and muscle? It is because the whole force of our being is bent in that direction. We have trained ourselves to engage with earnestness and power in worldly business, until it is easy for [...]

Lesson 5: Extreme Heat

God permitted His beloved Son, full of grace and truth, to come from a world of indescribable glory, to a world marred and blighted with sin, darkened with the shadow of death and the curse.
