We ought to remember that there is a thing before God called Reality.
The difficulty with many Christians is that they try to manufacture it.
They attempt to produce this reality before God.
With the result that they copy or imitate.
What God Requires though, is Trueness – the Real Thing Manifested in our lives.
That which we do by ourselves is man-made, a counterfeit, and not the genuine thing.
How very vain it is for man to act on the basis of doctrine, for all he has is nothing more than an outward conduct.
He does not have the True Article – the Reality.
