Faith, Norman Grubb, CT Studd

Today I give some background as to how I know Norman Grubb through another British missionary and street preacher Leonard Ravenhill, how I came across him and how the Lord lead me out of social-club style denominational Christianity towards truth and freedom of Christ as us. I include readings on Faith from ‘Summit Living’ selected readings from Norman’s books ‘Touching the Invisible’ and ‘After CT Studd’

The Obedience of Faith by Norman Grubb

The Obedience of Faith by Norman Grubb

living room talk given in the 1970’s.

Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith. Rom 16:25,26

Question: In the union life, where is responsibility for disobedience?

NPG: There is only one obedience in the Bible, the obedience of faith, not the obedience of works. The last verse in the book of Romans, which is kind of the standard book on gospel truth, it’s unto the obedience of faith. But, what’s that mean? It means I’m believing God is what He says He is. There’s only one wrong thing in life and that is not to believe that God is what He says He is. I don’t talk in terms of disobedience or obedience when I know who I am on the truth basis, on the Bible basis, which is that you and I are really Christ expressed in human forms. Of course, you see, if this life consists of God in me, it says, “God works in me to will and do.” I don’t will and do, then. Philippians says, “It is God that works in me to will and do of His good pleasure,” and I just fulfill His willing and doing. That’s why it’s an easy life. I don’t do a thing unless I’m made to. It’s great fun. The Bible doesn’t tell me to walk. The Bible tells me, in Ezekiel, that when He puts His spirit within me, He causes me to walk. Well, He does the walking then. He causes me to walk. I walk. I just get pushed along, that’s all.
