Happy Friday everyone! Today’s featured free download is The Two Covenants by Andrew Murray.
When God created man in His image and likeness, it was that he might have a life as like His own as it was possible for a creature to live. This was to be by God Himself living and working all in man. For this man was to yield himself in loving dependence to the wonderful glory of being the recipient, the bearer, the manifestation of a Divine life. The one secret of man’s happiness was to be a trustful surrender of his whole being to the willing and the working of God. When sin entered, this relation to God was destroyed; when man had disobeyed, he feared God and fled from Him. He no longer knew, or loved, or trusted God.
These eighteen meditations from Andrew Murray attempt to show us the blessings that God has bestowed on us, what the New Covenant assures us will be fulfilled, and what the conditions are for the full and continual experience of its blessings. Also included are discourses on The Second Blessing and others.
