Weaving together the threads that make up my passion for the written word…as an author, editor, and follower of The Word.
(by Charles S. Price, 1887-1947)
When will we stop our foolish and needless struggles and begin to believe? When will we put an end to our unscriptural mental and intellectual gyrations in our attempt to find a faith we do not possess; for unless we get it from God, never will we possess that Faith! We are capable of belief and at the same time absolutely incapable of the exercise of Bible faith. Thousands have wandered into the error of thinking that belief is faith. it is not. There is belief in faith, without a doubt; but” the devils also believe.”
Belief is cold—intellectual. It operates as far as the human goes in the realms of intellect. Many sinful men believe the Bible, but such belief does not save them. Faith is living. It moves and operates, and sweeps the enemies of the soul before its irresistible march. All the faith in the world? No! You need only as much as a grain of mustard seed, if it is God’s faith! Then mountains will be removed. Your sin-sick soul will behold the glory of the Lord. But it must be God’s faith. It must come from Him. He must impart it. And He will. That is the Gospel of Grace which I believe. The Jericho Road without Jesus is the Jericho Road.
With Him it is the shining highway of salvation and healing. Its very rocks cry out His glory. Without Him its dust is sordid, its tears are real, and its blindness is so dark; but with Him its dust begins to grow the flowers of grace and glory; its tears are turned to pearls; its blindness and darkness is turned to light. It takes the presence of Jesus to work the miracle of the transformation of the Jericho Road.
The blind man did not sit in the sand and say to himself, “I am healed—I can see—I can see—now if only I can believe I am healed and can see, then I will be! No. He heard that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. He cried, “Jesus! Jesus! Help me! Please help me, for I cannot help myself!” Then do not forget the words of Jesus,” What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?” Mark you, it was not” What wilt thou that you should do,” but” What do you want Me to do?”
