To My Wife


Who has been my untiring helper in whatever

I have said or written for thirty-one blessed years.

Always abiding in the ministries of a Christian home,

she has left to me the thanks and prayers of those who have

been blessed through our joint labours, content so only that

Christ was exalted.


To the Reader


All of the matter composing this book was preached to my congregations in my two pastorates at Dallas, Texas, and Northfield, Massachusetts, and all, save the address on “The Imparted Life,” were published first in the “Dallas News.” These, reprinted in “The Christian Worker’s Magazine,” awoke a desire which seemed to be unusually widespread that these teachings concerning the New Life in Christ Jesus might be collected into a book. This, by arrangement with The Bible Institute Colportage Association, has now been done.


The book is here and now committed to the care of Him whom it seeks to exalt in the fervent prayer that through His grace it may show the way into happy, victorious, fruitful Christian living to many in bondage.
