IF the limits of this volume would permit, we
would show that no matter what book in the
Bible, or what inspired writer therein, mentions
the manner of the obtainment of a pure heart,
that the conditions in every instance are just the
same. They are always consecration and faith.

THE SAVIOR'S WAY.REV. B. CARRADIE, D. D.IF the limits of this volume would permit, wewould show that no matter what book in theBible, or what inspired writer therein, mentionsthe manner of the obtainment of a pure heart,that the conditions in every instance are just thesame. They are always consecration and faith.Some writers are more explicit than others ;some emphasize one step more than the other;and others, while recognizing the two steps, makeprayer a prominent factor, — all of which is allow-able, and is understood by the spiritual reader.It is certainly most strengthening to the faithto see Moses, Paul, James, and John, all agree asto these steps.In addition, however, to these inspired author-ities, we mentionTHE SAVIOR'S WAY.More than once He showed the entrance intothis blessed experience.Once in John xiv, 23, where He says: "If a134The Savior's Way, 135
 
man love Me, he will keep my words : and myFather will love him, and we will come unto him,and make our abode with him."Here is a distinct blessing from pardon ; for itis promised to a man who loves Christ and keepsHis words.The blessing promised is the indwelling of Christ in the soul — not for a day, but for all time :He will take up His permanent abode in the heart.The condition is briefly put, as is the custom of Scripture ; and that condition is, a loving and com-plete obedience to the Lord. This is only anotherway of expressing the idea of a perfect conse-cration.Let a regenerated man who is sighing for thehigher grace, determine on a full obedience toGod ; let him say, I will hearken to His voice inevery particular, — and what is that, when exam-ined, but a perfect consecration? Let the readertry it, and find out for himself.Well did John say: " Whoso keepeth His word,in him verily is the love of God perfected ; andagain: "If we walk in the light, as He is in thelight, we have fellowship one with another, and"(right there, while in the light, and rejoicing inthe fellowship of Christians — right there the won-136 The Better Way.drous grace takes place) "the blood of Jesus Christ,His Son, cleanseth us from all sin."But the conditions of entrance into the Better
 
Way are still more clearly put by the Savior inMatthew xi, 29: "Take my yoke upon you, andlearn of Me; . . . and ye shall find rest untoyour souls."In this paragraph of three verses, from whichthe verse quoted is taken, there are two rests men-tioned. One is "given;" the other is said to be"found." One is received before taking the yoke;the other, after putting it on. To the class ob-taining the first rest, Christ says, "Come unto Me;"but to the other class, who are to obtain the secondrest, He gives a different direction altogether.Let the reader observe that it is after the re-ception of the second rest that Christ says that " Hisyoke is easy, and His burden is light." This is the joyful experience of all who receive the blessing.The two conditions of consecration and faithare remarkably clear in the 29th verse:"Take my yoke upon you."Here is consecration, and we know of no morestriking figure to express a complete consecrationand yielding up of self than the one employed here.An ox is one thing, but a yoked-up ox is an-The Savior's Way. 137other. Many oxen object to the last condition.They do n't regret belonging to a certain man, butthere is a disinclination to being "yoked up;" forfrom the instant that the bow is shot into the yoke,and the key slipped in the bow, the ox is com-pletely at the will- of his master. He has now to
