THE CONDITIONS OF PEACE
By A. W. Tozer
He came trembling and fell down before Paul and Silas. . .
and said. Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
-- Acts 16:25~30
In a world like ours, with conditions being what they
are, what should a serious-minded man or woman do?
First, accept the truth concerning yourself. You do not
go to a doctor to seek consolation, but to find out what is
wrong and what to do about it.
Then seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness;
Seek through Jesus Christ a right relationship to God and
then insist upon maintaining a right relation to your
Set about reverently and honestly to amend your
doings. Magnify God, mortify the flesh, simplify your life
Take up your cross and learn of Jesus Christ to die to this
world, that He may raise you up in due time.
If you will do these things in faith and love, you will
know peace; the peace of God that passes all
You will know joy; the joy of resurrection. You will
know, too, the comfort of the indwelling Spirit of God,
for you have sought to do the will of God at any price!
Yours in Christ,
Paul N. F.
