Keys to living in God's will.

Christians today would benefit from reading the old books filled with revelation knowledge like this one by William Law. What God calls us to is a sacrificial life where we deny self and seek to be pleasing to God. This can only be done in the Power of the Holy Spirit.

Be forewarned however. A seeking heart that desires obedience will find plenty of insightful instruction which is sure to bring conviction. Many people will find a tool God can use in their lives wher

Recommends it for: everyone who is wondering what the church is missing today
The nice thing about this book is: you don't have to read this book with your head, indeed more than that: it is in fact impossible. If you do so, you will miss the message. Only Spirit of God Himself can reveal Himself. You cannot read about Him to know Him. This book does not only talk about the power of the Spirit, it shows it clearly. You'll read not mere words but taste the Life the book talks about. William shows that we have a serious problem in our church. Although his name Law suggests ...more

Hard read....need to engage with...Will read again. Challenging book. Christian life without the Holy Spirit is ineffective and dead. Life in the Holy Spirit is peace and joy and fruit producing, so alive. It is a life surrendered, so the life of Christ can be lived and seen.

Great book compiled by Dave Hunt. So many of the things William Law writes echoes the ministry on the topic of Christ vs. religion.

William Law (1686 – 9 April 1761) was a Church of England priest who lost his position at Emmanuel College, Cambridge when his conscience would not allow him to take the required oath of allegiance to the first Hanoverian monarch, George I. Previously William Law had given his allegiance to the House of Stuart and is sometimes considered a second-generation non-juror (an earlier generation of non- ...more

“Let the Christian world forget or depart from this true gospel salvation; let anything else be trusted but the cross of Christ and the Spirit of Christ; and then, though churches and preachers and prayers and sacraments are everywhere in plenty, nothing can come of them but a Christian kingdom of pagan vices, along with a mouth-professed belief in the Apostles’ Creed and the communion of saints. To this sad truth all Christendom both at home and abroad bears full witness. Who need be told that no corruption or depravity of human nature, no kind of pride, wrath, envy, malice, and self-love; no sort of hypocrisy, falseness, cursing, gossip, perjury, and cheating; no wantonness of lust in every kind of debauchery, foolish jesting, and worldly entertainment, is any less common all over Christendom, both popish and Protestant, than towns and villages. What vanity, then, to count progress in terms of numbers of new and lofty cathedrals, chapels, sanctuaries, mission stations, and multiplied new membership lists, when there is no change in this undeniable departure of men’s hearts from the living God. Yea, let the whole world be converted to Christianity of this kind, and let every citizen be a member of some Protestant or Catholic church and mouth the creed every Lord’s day; and no more would have been accomplished toward bringing the kingdom of God among men than if they had all joined this or that philosophical society or social fraternity.” 3 likes
“A lack of this complete submission to the will of God, and a failure to realize that our salvation can only be worked out by the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit forming the very life of Christ within the redeemed heart, has placed the Christian church today in the same apostasy that characterized the Jewish nation.” 1 likes
