 The LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heartó1. Sam. 16:7

 

 If we lose sight of the fact that God regards us from the standpoint of the will, if we get to thinking of ourselves and Godís estimate of us according to the flesh, we are sure to get proportionately into darkness and confusion and discouragement. But let us not forget, on the other hand, that the spirit, or will, is counted alive because of its righteousness, because it is in harmony with God. Let us, therefore, never be slack in respect to the will, or intention governing the conduct of our lives, but remember that any laxity will mean the proportionate loss of spiritual life. To will right is always possible to us, and nothing less than an absolutely loyal will could be acceptable to God in Christ.
