The ministry contained in this little book has been wrought on the anvil of deep and drastic dealings of God with the vessel. It is not only doctrinal; it is experiential. Only those who really mean business with God will take the pains demanded to read it. For such, two words of advice may be helpful. Firstly, try to remember all through that the spoken form is retained. The messages were given in conference, and the reader must try to get into the spirit and mind of listening; and not only reading. In speaking, the messenger can see by the faces before him where repetition or reemphasis or fuller elucidation is called for. This explains much that would not be the character of a precisely literary production. It has its difficulties for readers, but it also has its values.

Then, my advice is that not too much, indeed not a lot, should be attempted at once. Almost every page requires thinking about, and weariness can only overtake if too much is read without quiet meditation.

Of all the books that have issued from this ministry, I regard this one as that which goes most deeply to the roots and foundations of our life in Christ with God.

May He make the reading of it result in a fuller understanding of the meaning of Christ.

~T. Austin-Sparks London, July 1964

This is a very mature piece of work in the spiritual world. I found it to be very intriguing and if anyone is seriously looking to improve their relationship with Christ, they should pick this up. It's not a hard read and it speaks of simple truths, but in a very profound way. If one could just apply the truths in this book to daily life, I think one would grow much closer to God and have a much better understanding of the true Christian life.

I initially read this book over twenty years ago. The book is relatively short, however it took ne a month to go through it the first time. Since then I have and am still using it on a regular basis. I purchase them in bulk and distribute them to those who I sense desire a greater understanding of the ways if the Kingdom of God, the cost involved if we are to participate correctly and "the hidden warnings if we don't! This one is one of my top five titles!

I thank God that this book is available. Every evening before turning out the light, I chewed on a couple of pages. The Holy Spirit has used that to enlighten me with several gifts.

So few in the churches today realize the importance of being under the headship of Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit. If you are yearning to give yourself, as Christ gave Himself to the will of His Father, enjoy.
