LIVELY LESSONS IN SPIRITUAL SERVICE
Friendship, Fervent and not Farcical, with Christ
Rev. Dr. Robert E. Donaldson
Published by World Wide Web Witness Inc.
This is NOT a book about how marvellous this or that person is, has been or is likely to be, except incidentally perhaps with regard to future generics or passing actions on this earth. It IS about ACTUALITIES, chiefly as found in the Bible, about what is and is not spiritual service, what is the rot for the heart and the life for it, what is savoury and unsavoury, difficult yet worthwhile and where treacherous shoals lie.
Above all, since service is a result of friendship with Christ on HIS terms, since after all He is God who became man that man might become a friend of no less a Being that God Himself, it is about His ways and ours, and the fruitfulness that results from love, not mere performance, with grace, not mere trumpeting, efficacy, not mere effort, abiding and obedience, not divergence from the precision of the word of God, to displace, dispel or to compromise it, as is the custom of many. Predicted as found, and found as predicted, such developments are to be taken as might be disease syndrome and the arrival of late symptoms. How is that ? Treat the patient carefully, with premeditated procedures and strong doses of truth, liquid refreshment of mercy and an apt dose of realisation.
We do not face merely something wrong, but the very devil's song, an animated dirge, and digressive surge. The foundations in Christ and His word must therefore be acutely pursued, resolutely applied and by His Spirit, found in their strength.
