Most of us, according to Andrew Murray, live half-hearted Christian lives. We long to know God and his power, but are frustrated in our efforts.

Murray's book is in two sections. The first, using the Road to Emmaus scripture from Luke, posits that our answer can be found in living in the abiding presence of Christ. There are four ways that Murray feels that God can bring that presence into our lives. We must have faith, believing that He will do what he has promised. We must obey what He tells us. We must cultivate his presence. (This goes beyond prayer and Bible study.) Finally, we must do his work in the world.

The second half of the book deals with the Cross of Christ and its effects in our lives.

I'm glad I read this during Lent. I also found the idea of cultivating the Presence of God one which I want to think about a lot. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Vibrant devotional reading from two classic writers Both Andrew Murray and Charles Finney wrote and spoke dynamically on the work of the Holy Spirit in the Christian's life. Editor L. G. Parkhurst has taken Murray's classic, The Secret of Power from on High, and combined it with insights from Finney's book, Power from on High, updating them for today's reader. Murray's primary concern was that the believer bear the fruits of the Holy Spirit in his daily life; Finney's burden was for the believer to experience the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Both writers subscribe to the same conditions for receiving the power from on high. The two combine to form a powerful message to Christians. The thirty-one devotionals begin with a reading on a particular issue by Murray, then Finney's commentary on that issue and a concluding prayer. A unique devotional handbook that deserves a wide audience in this newly edited format.… (more)
