HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21).
It is a great thing to be able to receive new truth and blessing without sacrificing the truths already proved and abandoning foundations already laid.
Some persons are always laying the foundations, and they present, at last, the appearance of a lot of abandoned sites and half-constructed buildings, and nothing is ever brought to completion.
The fact that you are abandoning to-day for some new truth the things that a year ago you counted most precious and believed to be divinely true, should be sufficient evidence that you will probably a year from to-day abandon your present convictions for the next new light that comes to you.
God is ever wanting
- to add to us,
- to develop us,
- to enlarge us, to teach us more and more,
but it is ever in the line of things which He has already taught us, and in which we have been established.
While we are to “prove all things,” let us “hold fast that which is good,” and “whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.”
In these days many people continue to break down and re-construct and at times without any foundation. They run from pillar to post and cannot attain any sure thing. God is calling us to a place where He wants to establish us for His purpose. Upon this Rock, I will build my church and the gates of hell will not be able to penetrate it. Where are you standing today or what are you building?
