I love Oswald Chambers writing because he is always right on to the “word.” He wrote: LIBERTY ON THE ABYSS OF THE GOSPEL - “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.” (Galatians 5:1). A spiritually minded man will never come to you with the demand --- “Believe this and that” but with the demand that you square your life with the standards of Jesus. We are not asked to believe the Bible, but to believe the ”One Whom the Bible reveals” (cf. John 5: 39 –40). We are called to present liberty of conscience, not liberty of view. If we are free with the liberty of Christ, others will be brought into that same liberty – the liberty of realizing the dominance of Jesus Christ. Always keeps your life measured by the standards of Jesus. Don’t get impatient, remember how God dealt with you – with patience and with gentleness; but never water down the truth of God. Let it have its way and never apologize for it. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples,” not “make converts to your opinions.”
