A Christian is comprehended in this saying, “It pleased God to reveal His Son in me:” (Gal. 1:15-16)
A Christian is not one who does this and that and another thing which is prescribed to be done; a Christian is not one who refrains from doing this and that and another thing because they are forbidden; a Christian is not one at all who is governed by the externalities of a way of life, an order, a legalistic system which says, you must, and you must not: a Christian is comprehended in this saying, “It pleased God to reveal His Son in me:” (Gal. 1:15-16)
Spiritual Senses is a compilation of four separate writings from our beloved author, T. Austin-Sparks. In each section of this book, he brings to our attention the desires and heart of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, concerning ourselves, our desolateness, and finally, how to go on onto Spiritual Maturity. So deep is this book that a person must have the revelation of Christ, His suffering and pain, and His ultimate glory, in order to appreciate what T. Austin-Sparks is saying. This is not a book to be read speedily, but to be considered carefully in prayer, lest we miss any of the incredible truth that is endowed in these pages. May the Lord bless you richly as you humble yourself and partake of His great Blessings.
Theodore Austin-Sparks was born in London, England in 1888 and was educated in both England and Scotland. At the age of 25 he was ordained as a pastor; however, a few years later his “career” took a decidedly different direction when a spiritual crisis brought him to a place of brokenness. He left the denomination with which he was involved, dropped the title of “Reverend” and went on to produce much writing, all with a strong revelation of Christ.
