First Chapter

Part IThe Christian's Warfare

"Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?" (I John 5:4-5). When a battle is fought, all are anxious to know who the victors are. In these verses we are told who is to gain the victory in life. When I was converted I made this mistake: I thought the battle was already mine, the victory already won, the crown already in my grasp. I thought that old things had passed away, that all things had become new, and that my old corrupt nature, the Adam life, was gone. But I found out, after serving Christ for a few months, that conversion was only like enlisting in the army. There was a battle on hand, and if I was to get a crown, I had to work for it and fight for it. Salvation is a gift, as free as the air we breathe. It is to be obtained, like any other gift, without money and without price; there are no other terms. "To him that worketh not, but believeth" (Rom. 4:5). But on the other hand, if we are to gain a crown, we must work for it. Let me quote a few verses in 1 Corinthians: For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest. for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work, of what sort it is. If any man's work shall abide, which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. (1 Cor. 3.11-15) We see clearly from this that we may be saved, but all our works will be burned up. I may have a wretched miserable voyage through life with no victory and no reward at the end and be saved by fire, or as Job puts it, "With the skin of my teeth" (Job 19:20). 1 believe that a great many men will barely get to heaven as Lot got out of Sodom -- burned out, nothing left, works and everything else destroyed. It is like this: when a man enters the army, he is a member of the army the moment he enlists. He is just as much a member as a man who has been in the army ten or twenty years. But enlisting is one thing, and participating in a battle another. Young converts are like those just enlisted. It is folly for any man to attempt to fight in his own strength. The world, the flesh, and the devil are too much for any man. But if we are linked to Christ by faith and He has formed in us the hope of glory, then we will get the victory over every enemy. It is believers who are the overcomers. "Thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ" (2 Cor. 2:14). Through Him we will be more than conquerors. I wouldn't think of talking to unconverted men about overcoming the world, for it is utterly impossible. They might as well try to cut down the American forest with their penknives. But a good many Christian people make this mistake: they think the battle is already fought and won. They have an idea that all they have to do is put the oars down in the bottom of the boat, and the current will drift them into the ocean of God's eternal love. But we have to cross the current. We have to learn how to watch and fight and how to overcome. The battle has only just commenced. The Christian life is filled with conflict and warfare, and the quicker we find it out the better. There is not a blessing in this world that God has not linked Himself to. God associates all the great and higher blessings with Himself. When God and man work together, then there is going to be victory. We are coworkers with Him. You might take a mill and put it forty feet above a river, and there isn't capital enough in the States to make that river turn the mill. But, get it down about forty feet, and away it works. We want to keep in mind that if we are going to overcome the world, we have got to work with God. It is His power that makes all the means of grace effectual. There is a story that Frederick Douglas, the great slave orator, once said in a mournful speech when things looked dark for his race, "The white man is against us, governments are against us, the spirit of the times is against us. I see no hope for the colored race. I am full of sadness." Just then a poor old colored woman rose in the audience, and said, "Frederick, is God dead?" My friend, it makes a difference when you count God in. Now many a young believer is discouraged and disheartened when he realizes this warfare. He begins to think that God has forsaken him and that Christianity is not all that it professes to be. But, he should rather regard it as an encouraging sign. No sooner has a soul escaped from his snare than the great Adversary takes steps to ensnare it again. He puts forth all his power to recapture his lost prey. The fiercest attacks are made on the strongest forts, and the fiercer the battle the young believer is called on to wage, the surer evidence is of the work of the Holy Spirit in his heart. God will not desert him in his time of need any more than He deserted His people of old when they were hard-pressed by their foes.
