It is possible to stand high in religious circles and not get out of kindergarten in the school of Christ; it is possible to hold postgraduate degrees in theology and never make third grade at the feet of the Master. Growing in knowledge is not necessarily growing in grace. One may associate with the Saviour, as Philip did, and still hear Him say, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me…?” (John 14:9). McCheyne wrote: “Men return again and again to the few who have mastered the spiritual secret, whose life has been hid with Christ in God. These are of the oldtime religion, hung to the nails of the cross” – men of the cross, with the message of the cross, bearing the marks of the cross!
