But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for
you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from
the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctifica-
tion of the Spirit and belief of the truth.

The object of this book is to lead the child of God into the richer experiences of the life in Christ. Many Christians make little progress after conversion. One reason is that they think of salvation as the strength which God gives to help them save themselves. The Christian life. is to them a human undertaking attended by divine aid. In these pages the life in Christ is presented as the work of God in the soul, and the believer is encouraged to commit himself entirely to God to be kept by Him.

In Part I it is shown that the Christian is one chosen of God unto eternal life. This fact is established from the teachings of our Lord and of Paul, and from the personal experience of the chosen one, and the Biblical explanation of the fact is unfolded.

In Part II the light from this fact of the believer's adoption is thrown upon other great truths of the Gospel and itself is illuminated by them.
