As we view the Work of the Lord Jesus in the Holy Spirit we find that all His Works are Living to us.
If we look at His Work outside the Holy Spirit, all will be mere letters, and letters are dead.
If we treat these matters as simply doctrines, they are dead.
All things in Christ, if treated as letters or doctrines, become things of the past;
If they are approached in the Holy Spirit, however, they never become something past but are Always Present Living Realities.
