Sheridan Baker was an itinerant preacher who became a successful merchant before he entered His Rest. The snares of prosperity were his main obstacles. Some time after entering His Rest, he writes: "By and by, I began to turn my attention away from what had been done for me to what I began to see before me, and I perceived that a state of purity and general fullness of the Spirit were small matters in contrast with "all the fulness of God," and living in the realm of the "exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think." Since then I have been a continuous seeker, not for pardon, or purity, or the grace already obtained, but for more and more of the Christ nature. "Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth to those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize."
