9 James Hudson Taylor A Biography by Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor pg. 15 “Outwardly he was a bright lad of seventeen, with few anxieties or cares, but inwardly he was rebellious and full of unbelief. For a few months he had gone as junior clerk into one of the banks at Barnsley, where most of his new associates were thoroughly worldly. Skeptical views to which he was a stranger were freely discussed among them, and religion was seldom spoken of without a sneer. One of the older clerks in particular, a handsome popular fellow, took every occasion to laugh at what he called Hudson’s ‘old-fashioned notions,’ and did all he could to make him as light-minded as himself. The boy began to long for gaiety and distraction, for money and a horse to go hunting, as did some of his companions. He found it weary work to try to keep up the outward forms of Christian life, though he struggled to do so for a time.”

15 Grace Lewis Sperry Chafer pg. 87 “According to the Scriptures, Christians are confronted with a two-fold danger: On the one hand, they may go in the way of the irresponsible, careless sin of the Gentiles, or, on the other hand, they may go into the legality of the Jews. They may ‘walk as do the Gentiles,’ or they may ‘fall from grace.’ They are warned as much against the one mistake as against the other. The doctrines of grace may be so perverted that, while there is a holy horror of slipping into careless sin, it is deemed most pious to assume the cursing burden of law. The teachings of grace give equal warning against the sin of turning either in the way of Gentiles or in the way of the Jews.”

16 Grace Lewis Sperry Chafer pp “It is unfortunate that the theological discussion which has proceeded on the supposition that a Christian must either be under the law of Moses, or else be absolutely lawless and ungoverned, could not have made place for the fact that there is a third ground of relationship to God which is neither the law of Moses, nor the ungoverned lawlessness of the world. To be ‘inlawed to Christ’ is to be under the teachings of grace as a rule of life. These teachings include the ‘commandments’ of Christ which are addressed to Christians as such in the upper room, and these ‘commandments’ of Christ have been taken up, enlarged, and advanced, under the guidance of the Spirit in the book of the Acts and the Epistles of the New Testament. They constitute a separate and sufficient rule of life for the believer which is divinely adapted to his position in grace, and these great governing principles of grace are addressed to the believer alone, and not to the Christ-rejecting world.”

17 Grace Lewis Sperry Chafer pp “When any work is undertaken for God by which it is hoped thereby to gain divine favor, that work is wrought of necessity on the basis of pure law. On the other hand, when any work is undertaken for God because it is recognized that divine favor and blessing already have been received, it is wrought in harmony with pure grace.”

18 Grace Lewis Sperry Chafer pp. 288, 357 “Too often the Christian life is presented as being a matter of observing certain rules and sustaining a superficial outward conduct, to the neglect of the divinely provided, victorious, overflowing life in the Spirit. Notwithstanding the consternation of the untaught legalist who proposes to regulate Christian conduct by precept, the truth stands that the Lord's day imposes no rules, and yields to no law… “Again, the daily life and service of the one who is alive unto God must be recognized as assuming infinite proportions when its issues are seen. Nothing short of that manner of life which is normal under grace glorifies God. Nothing short of this will be fruitbearing with its eternal rewards. Nothing short of this will result in that personal experience of overflowing love, joy, and peace, without which the empty heart remains as a living witness against the truth of God. The importance of a daily life lived in the full measure of divine blessing provided under grace is likewise beyond human estimation. “‘Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. unto him be glory now and forever. Amen.’” [2 Peter 3:16-18]
