" .... the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." (John 6:63)
A man who comes to the higher regions of spiritual life really enjoys his life. But it is not for us to enjoy it alone. We have to bear other's burdens. We have to study the Bible. At one stage the Word of God is flesh and at another stage it is Spirit. The Word is life which heals and strengthens you and then you are filled with His Spirit. This is a spiritual enjoyment which you will share with others in need. "From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: ..." (Isaiah 1:6). In this world people are full of wounds and bruises. They are bleeding inside. People are sinking in their hearts. 'Come unto me,' says Christ. You will be lifted into a higher life and energized to serve God. Do you despise God's service? There is nothing higher than that you can be engaged in. If you save one drunken father, how much misery you are ending! What would it be if you saved a hundred such fathers! We must know the dignity of our service. Our dignity is our humility. If you rise into higher atmosphere by prayer and energize yourself through the study of the Word and go forward and rescue men, you will create a little heaven around you. No one who seeks the world will be happy at the end of his life. He will die with sorrow and disappointment. One who consecrates himself to the Lord and serves Him will have no sorrow at the end of his life. He will look back with joy at all he has done. He will bequeath faith to his children. There is a great future for you. You can achieve things that none others have achieved. Always expect great things from God and attempt great things for God.
