The Heavenly Calling, Conduct and Conflict of the Church

by T. Austin-Sparks

Date messages given unknown. Edited and supplied by the Golden Candlestick Trust.

If you and I are going to seek the riches of Christ for some little personal Christian life and some little bit of personal Christian work, something that is quite a private affair, something that is ours and of interest to us, something down here on this earth that we want to get going, preserve, develop - we are not going to find the Lord comes in in fulness along that line at all. That is why there are so many struggling, but ever-defeated Christians, and that is why there is such a poor sort of church here; ineffective. It is trying to live on far too low a level with far too small a vision. If you and I and the Lord's people were to come to see the tremendous significance of the calling... then we would discover what our riches are, what our 'every spiritual blessing' is.
