"THE CONDITIONS OF PEACE"


      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
         fellow man.

             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
         understanding.

             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.
