As soon as you begin to live the life of faith in God, fascinating and luxurious prospects will open up before you, and these things are yours by right; but if you are living the life of faith you will exercise your right to waive your rights, and let God choose for you.

This is the discipline by means of which the natural is transformed into the spiritual by obedience to the voice of God.
Whenever right is made the guidance in the life, it will blunt the spiritual insight. The great enemy of the life of faith in God is not sin, but the good which is not good enoug…

treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone,
former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the May 17 issue

first-century church in Corinth faced special challenges. One problem was that
many members placed undue emphasis on those who spoke in tongues. Today we will
first study Acts 2, when the church began, so that we can understand the context
of Paul’s teaching on this subject to the Corinthians. Tongues at the Church’s Birth | Acts 2:1-7, 12 The Day of Pentecost was 50 days after the Sabbath of Passover
