OBEDIENCE……C.H. Mackintosh

“My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent me. If any man will do His will, he
shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself.” John 7:17-17

“He will not let me find out His way, unless there be in me a spirit of obedience.”

“We must never lose sight of the weighty fact that it is as we act on what we
know that our knowledge shall increase. We may fill our intellect with biblical
knowledge, we may have the doctrines of the Bible and the letter of Scripture
at our finger-tips without one particle of unction or spiritual power. We must
go to Scripture as a thirsty man goes to a well; as a hungry man goes to a meal;
as a mariner goes to a chart. We must go to it because we cannot do without it.
The instincts of the divine nature lead us to the Word of God as the newborn
babe desires the milk by which he is to grow. It is by feeding on the Word that
the new man grows.”
