GROW TO SHARE *
*By Miles Stanford*
*
"For they disciplined us only a short time, as it seemed proper to them;
but He does it for our good, in order that we may share His holy
character" (Heb. 12:10, Wms.).

It is only natural to feel that our need requires immediate victory, but
the truth is that we cannot come to maturity apart from the Holy
Spirit's processing and development of our life, day by day. A quick and
easy victory would cripple our usefulness in these two ways: we would
not understand the all-important principle of processing; we would not
appreciate the needs of others. 'If we are unable to share, we abide
alone like the grain of wheat that does not die.

So often in the battle we go to the Lord, and pray, and plead, and
appeal for victory, for ascendancy, for mastery over the forces of evil
and death, and our thought is that in some way the Lord is going to come
in with a mighty exercise of power and put us into a place of spiritual
maturity as in an act. We must have this mentality corrected. What the
Lord does is to enlarge us to possess. He takes us through some
exercise, through some experience, takes us by some way which means our
spiritual expansion, an increase of spirituality so we occupy the larger
place spontaneously because of our growth. 'I will not drive them out
from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the
beast of the field multiply against thee. By little and little I will
drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased' (Exod.
23:29,30)." -T. A-S.

"Now for the time being no discipline [ child-training] seems to be
pleasant; it is painful; later on, however, to those who are trained by
it, it yields the fruit of peace which grows from upright character"
(Heb. 12:11, Wms.).

*"In Christ there is no East or West,*
* In Him no South or North;*
* But one great fellowship of love*
* Throughout the whole wide earth."*
