And yet the majority of Gods people do not enjoy the blessings, joy, victory and fruitfulness which God intends for them to have in this life. The real need of the hour is for the people of God to realize the purpose for which God saved them and to begin to live in the reality of that purpose.
This book was written with the prayer and desire that our blessed Lord will use it for His glory to enable His people to enjoy all that He has provided for them. Dr. Ernest Childs was saved at the age of 29. Soon after his conversion he went to work for his Lord, preaching and teaching the Word in young peoples meetings, rescue missions and anywhere else he could get an audience. He has spent over twenty years in the pastorate, founding two churches and pastoring one other. During that time he has authored a number of books, booklets and tracts, established three home mission boards, carried on a weekly radio broadcast for ten years- founded a Christian school and an evening Bible Institute, and preached in most of the states east of the Mississippi in Bible Conferences and revivals.
He has served at Ambassador Baptist College since its founding as Professor of Bible and Systematic Theology. In addition to his teaching duties, he also served as Academic Dean for eight years.
