My message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. –
1 Corinthians 2:4
From many hearts there is rising a cry for more power – more power in our personal conflicts with the world, the flesh, and the devil, and more power in our work for others. The Bible makes the way to obtain this longed-for power very plain. The Bible tells us how and the Bible was intended to be understood. If we will only make personal trial of the power of the Word of God, the power of the blood of Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit, the power of prayer, and the power of a surrendered life, then we will know the fullness of power in Christian life and service. We will make this clear in the following chapters.
There are many people who do not know that there is a life of abiding rest, joy, satisfaction, and power. There are many other people who, while they think there must be something beyond the life they know, do not know how to obtain it. This book is written to help them.
