Less teaching, more doing
The great tendency of today is that we are looking for another teacher. The world is sick of teachers and of ideals; the point is, have we ever lived up to any of our ideals? It is not more ideals we want, put the power to live up to what we know we ought to and don't. It is shallowness, not ability, that makes people say we want more teaching and higher ideals -- model Sunday school classes, model Bible classes; it is all model. 'Do this and don't do that,' but where is it being carried out? Jesus Christ does not add one burden to the lives of men; He imparts the power to live up to what we know we ought -- that is the meaning of salvation.
