True Achievement

"At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you." (John 14:20)

This is the goal of Christian life. That you are in Christ, and that Christ is in God. That is an understanding that ultimately comes to a devotee of Christ.

Faith X Revelation           

--------------------------- = Achievement

Pride X Vanity X Lust                                                                                                         

As you grow in the Lord the denominator begins to diminish. As you are studying the Word which is God Himself, these things start melting and disappearing. As you are meditating on the Word, pride, vanity and lust disappear. What is meditation? You take a dirty cloth and rub soap on it and then dip it in water. Then it is still a little dirty. Again you apply soap. The same process takes place in your soul. The soul also is given by God. There are great powers in the soul - thinking power, intellectual power, poetic grace and so on. But they are all wasted in a lost soul. When you are converted, you are given the Holy Spirit. The measure of that Spirit is meant to increase. If you do not grieve the Sprit, you are being filled more and more. You will be getting more revelation and faith.

Moses got that revelation. Prophets got that revelation. You will also get it. When you obey the Word, the measure of your faith increases and pride and lust go down. You will find great power. Your prayer becomes real. Where real prayer is going up, you will join there. Your soul rejoices when you hear somebody pray in the Sprit. Then you will realize that you are in the Father and the Father is in you. As we pray, we feel we are in Christ and that is enough for us.
