*REST, AND REJOICE!*
*By Miles Stanford*

"Rejoice in the Lord always!" (Phil. 4:4).

Exhaustive effort brings home the necessity of strengthening rest. The
believer will not be ready to enter into his spiritual rest until he is
utterly worn out by his unsuccessful efforts to conquer sin and the old
man. There is no rest for the "wretched man" of Romans 7--that struggle
must lead to the rest of Romans 8.

"Grace is sufficient for favorable circumstances, but they are by far
the most trying (spiritually) to the believer. There is an easy way of
going on in worldliness, and there is nothing more sad than the quiet
comfortable Christian going on day by day, apart from dependence upon
the Lord.

"It must be as with Israel and the manna; there must be the daily
gathering and daily dependence upon God. If circumstances come between
our hearts and God, we are powerless. If the Lord Jesus is nearer,
circumstances will not hinder our joy in God."

"The heart of man naturally seeks rest, and seeks it here. Now, there is
no rest to be found here for the believer; but it is written, 'There
remaineth, therefore, a rest to the people of God' (Heb. 4:9).

"To know this is both full of blessing and full of sorrow: sorrow to the
flesh; because it is always seeking its rest here, it has always to be
disappointed; blessing to the spirit, because the spirit, being born of
God, can only rest in God's rest, as it is said, 'If they shall enter
into My rest' (Heb. 4:5). What God desires for us is to bring us into
the enjoyment of all that which He Himself enjoys."-J.N. D.

"Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him" (Ps. 37:7).


Him we preach, admonishing every one and instructing every one, with all
possible wisdom, so that we may bring every one into God's presence,
made perfect through Christ. To this end, like an earnest wrestler, I
exert all my strength in reliance upon the power of Him who is mightily
at work within me. (Colossians 1 :28, 29, Plymouth's)
... Christ is all and in all! (Colossians 3: 11)


Our Purpose and Mission

The ministry of "Grace and The Truth" has the purpose of encouraging
Christians to believe what God says.

We read in in Ephesians. 1:18 "The eyes of your understanding being
enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what
the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints," and in
Colossians 2:2 " That their hearts might be comforted, being knit
together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of
understanding, to the acknowledgment (epignosis) true knowledge of the
mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ".

We are dedicated to helping Christians to a fuller knowledge of Him, and
the Grace of God. Until we all come into the Unity, Ephesians 4:13 "Till
we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son
of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the
fullness of Christ:"
