Originally titled Aids to Devotion, this study on Ephesians focuses on the Holy Spirit and Christian commitment. Writing nearly a century ago, Andrew Murray clearly teaches that commitment to Christ must be based not on determination but on complete dependence on the Holy Spirit. While retaining the author's message and style, this edition has been carefully edited to update the language for the 21st century reader.
A Clear Call to Commitment for Every ChristianAndrew Murray wrote this devotional study - first published in 1909 as Aids to Devotion - with the prayer that God would use it to help his children know that the "standard of the true Christian life" presented in the book of Ephesians is available to all believers. He assures readers: "That you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe" (Ephesians 1:18-19).The life of commitment to Christ begins with complete dependence of the Holy Spirit. In twenty brief chapters, beloved author Murray shows what this means for the believer, and twenty-first-century readers will find the message as timely today as a century ago.
South African pastor and author Andrew Murray, (1828-1917), one of four children was raised in the most remote corner of the world - Graaff-Reinet (near the Cape), South Africa, It was here, after his formal education in Scotland and three years of theological study,in Holland, that Andrew Murray returned as a missionary and minister. Murray's first appointment was to a remote and unattractive territory of nearly 50,000 square miles and 12,000 people.
In 1873, he helped to establish the Huguenot Seminary for girls. He also served as the first president of the Young Men's Christian Fellowship (YMCA).
Not only was Andrew Murray the author of over 240 books, he was also a man of great prayer. He began writing on the "deeper Christian life" - a favorite subject for Murray - for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his books, such as With Christ in the School of Prayerand Abide in Christ, that searched men's hearts and brought them into a deep relationship with Christ. Writing with an intensity of purpose and zeal for the message of the Gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his retirement at age seventy-eight. .- Publisher.
