Beloved of our Lord,
He Who said "I am the Truth" has become that "truth" in us also
by His pardoning and begetting grace. It is the truth of His Life.
As the Father and He are one in it, so now are we by Him, sharing
one eternal Life in the Only-begotten, and therefore abiding both in
the Father and in the Son by One Spirit.
And this truth is substantial, not theoretical. The Word has
become Substance, and we partake of Him, the actual and living
What an indissoluble bond is this as in Him and in us. Truly nothing
can separate us from this Love-Life of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The universe may sooner pass away than this Oneness of Life in Him.
Thus also He is able to save us unto the completion, and while the
throes of the whole creation become convulsive in these last hours
of the age, the powers in the heavens being shaken, and the
sea of humanity rages and roars with the sinister unrest that
betokens the coming incarnation of the god of this world, we,
beloved, are rooted and grounded in that Eternal Life, which is the
very Love of God in the Christ.
Do not trouble, therefore, your own hearts by any fears but
recognise that the Christ is in you and you in Him by One Life of
One Spirit, even the Spirit of God Incarnate. The Truth as it is in
Jesus, is now become the Truth in us also, One incarnate Life of God
in Him and in us. But He, the Head, and we the members, nevertheless
knit together in a Oneness that is indissoluble, eternal,
Praise God for a Truth that has become substance, actual;
and we living that Life in these mortal bodies by the very faith of
the Son of God.
Therefore, will not we fear though the earth be removed, and though
the mountains be carried into the heart of the seas; though the
waters thereof roar and are troubled; though the mountains shake
with the swelling thereof - for there is a River of Life,
and this flowing through our own hearts. "His love floweth on, full
and free as a river; And His mercy endureth forever and ever!
Yours in His plenitude,
