For the mercies and fellowship that have made possible a reprint of these
Volumes we give thanks.
We still desire greater light, deeper love, richer liberty, and fuller life, in
GREATER LIGHT.--"The entrance of Thy words giveth light"
(Psalm 119: 130). More and more we are learning the value of the Word
and words of God. No amount of reasoning or striving about the Word will
illumine our darkness. The words must enter. One has suggested that the
passage means, Thy words enter; light is given. We are in the dark, and in
uncertainty concerning some subjects; our desire is to let the Word and
words of God have an entrance. This we trust will characterize the articles
more and more; not the developing of a preconceived scheme, but the
placing of the words before the reader that they may enter.
DEEPER LOVE.--Light without heat and light without love are
parallels. To be sound in the faith requires something more than mental
acquiescence to truth. May we all earnestly covet this indispensable grace.
RICHER LIBERTY.--Many of us have rejoiced in liberty for some time.
May we remember that we have this liberty in order that by love we may
serve one another.
FULLER LIFE.--Life, light, love, liberty, fuller, greater, deeper, and
richer, are possible only in Christ. We need fear no darkness there, no
coldness there, no bondage there, no deadness there.
May our gratitude be expressed by a better realization of these graces.
Yours in love that passeth knowledge,
CHARLES H. WELCH
