Ask Christ

There are two parts to the answer. The first is this: ask Christ. You can come into the simple touch with Him where you can ask, and He will answer your question, and answer it fully.

That's an enormous advantage, to get actually in touch with the Christ that has all power, and has used it in this way.

Recall, if you will, what was said in our last Talk about getting into touch with Christ.

Ask Christ. He has the power to. That is clear. He did have the love to when He was down here. That's clear, too.

He thought it the wise thing to loosen out His power through His followers in those early sample Church days.

Ask Christ about your own need, whatever it may be. He is there at your side. He is intensely interested. He will answer your question.

Each one of us is a door. We are Christ's door, or we may be. We are His door into the whole circle where we live.

He wants to get through us to them. His dealings with us are an acted-out plea to them. Through these He talks to them.

The freer hand He can have with us the more He can touch them through us. We should eagerly yet patiently get into the sort of touch where He can give all He wants to. That means all we need.

Perhaps you're in that school we are to talk about soon. You need to learn a thing or two, maybe.

The thing we're needing may be withheld because there's something we're needing more. We may not know about that other need.

It may mean a radical face-about to know about that other thing, and more radical yet to be willing to get it, with all it involves.

Maybe you've got a term in school before you can get all you're needing. But then you can make it a very short term, if you will.

And, and, the Devil may be hindering. There is no bit of teaching more bitterly hated, and more stubbornly fought against, than this of bodily healing by Christ's supernatural touch.

Those who are in a place of leadership, or who have the personal gift of leadership, are yet more bitterly opposed than those otherwise placed or gifted.

One has to insist through bitter opposition often. The thing is to be clear of the Holy Spirit's leading, and then insist on having all He has for you.

Ask Christ your question. And remember, as you ask, about His first will for us. It includes whatever is included in this: full bodily health and vigour, to His glory. That's the first half of the answer.
