Just Let the Day Dawn

The path of the just… shineth more and more unto the perfect day. (Proverbs 4:18)

The Bible tells us that when a person becomes a Christian, it is as though the sun has come up and the day has dawned. Then his experience along the path should be like the glowing light which shineth more and more unto the perfect day!

This brings us to a question: if all Christians are alike in standing and state, why did Jesus point out three distinctions in the Christian life—”some thirty, some sixty and some a hundred fold”?

If we are all alike and have all “arrived” at the same place and state, why did the Apostle Paul tell the Philippian Christians—”I have suffered the loss of all things, that I may know Him and if by any means, I might attain unto that superior resurrection”?

I am of the opinion that we cannot experience that which we have not believed. I still think we must instruct and urge men and women, toiling along in average and common Christian ways, to move forward and claim spiritual victory they have not yet known.
