Originally published as a series of articles in the 1920s, this collection from one of Christianity's greatest thinkers will spur you on toward greater faith and confidence in Christ. Full of practical encouragement and solid theology, Our Brilliant Heritage contains such topics as "You Need Not Sin," "Make a Habit of Having No Habits," and, "Pull Yourself Together": .
“God does not give us power to imitate Him: He gives us His very Self.” (source)
“Sin is a step aside; being born of the Spirit of God is a step inside, and sanctification is being built into all the perfect character of Jesus Christ by a gift.” (source)
“God has no respect for anything we bring Him, He is after one thing only, and that is our unconditional surrender to Him.” (source)
“Get into the habit of saying—‘Lord Jesus, prove Thyself sufficient in me for this thing now.’ Do not say—‘Oh Lord, show me what to do’; let Him do it and it will be done. It is His perfections, not ours; His patience, His love, His holiness, His strength—‘all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus.’” (source)
“Whenever Paul speaks of sanctification, he speaks of it as an impartation, never as an imitation. Imitation comes in on a different line.” (source)
