Summary

The contents of this book are fundamental. God calls all who are His to a sanctified life. The life of a believer in which sin reigns is subnormal. However, many believers find themselves bound by sin. They are like Lazarus walking out of the tomb with life, but in bondage. 
In this book, we have attempted to show as clearly as we can, the way to deliverance from sin. We do not believe that anyone can be as sinless as the Lord Jesus was while in this body of flesh, but this state is already accomplished in the Lord Jesus and therefore, we can be delivered once and for all from the bondage of sin. We also see that this deliverance, though entered into as a crisis, must be maintained daily by a very close walk with the Lord, in full co-operation with Him, by the use of the sanctified mind. 
The Psalmist asked,  
"How can a young man keep his way pure?" He provided the answer as follows, "By guarding it according to thy word. With my whole heart I seek thee, let me not wander from thy commandment! I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed be thou, O Lord; teach me thy statutes! With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth. In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. I will meditate on thy precepts, and fix my eyes on thy ways. I will delight in thy statutes; I will not forget thy word" (Psalm 119:9-16). 
We believe with him that daily Bible study and prayer (The Quiet Time) is indispensable in maintaining the sanctified life which is first entered into by faith in the finished work of Christ. 
Holiness is not just the absence of sin. It includes conformity to God. Sanctification is an aspect of holiness. Our prayer is that the Lord will use this book to work out sanctification in many lives and that many will attain unto "the holiness without which no one will see the Lord."

    Lord Teach Us to Pray

    THE disciples had been with Christ, and seen Him pray. They had learnt
    to understand something of the connection between His wondrous life in public,
    and His secret life of prayer. They had learnt to believe in Him as a Master in
    the art of prayer—none could pray like Him. And so they came to Him with the
    request, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’ And in after years they would have told us
    that there were few things more wonderful or blessed that He taught them than
    His lessons on prayer.
    
    And now still it
    comes to pass, as He is praying in a, certain place, that disciples who see Him
    thus engaged feel the need of repeating the same request, ‘Lord, teach us to
    pray.’ As we grow in the Christian life, the thought and the faith of the
    Beloved Master in His never-failing intercession becomes evermore precious, and
    the hope of being Like Christ in His
    intercession gains an attractiveness before unknown. And as me see Him pray,
    and remember that there is none who can pray like Him, and none who can teach
    like Him, we feel the petition of the disciples, ‘Lord, teach us to pray,’ is
    just what we need. And as we think how all He is and has, how He Himself is our
    very own, how He is Himself our life, we feel assured that we have but to ask,
    and He will be delighted to take us up into closer fellowship with Himself, and
    teach us to pray even as He prays.
