Take a Christian sometime and put him under a strain and watch how he acts, and you can tell what he's made out of. Everybody can go good; everybody can praise the Lord while the Holy Spirit's a falling in a congregation of people. But let trouble arise and watch what takes place.
If you want to see a miracle, become one. Let God work on you first. He's got some overhauling to do, some different lenses to put over your eyes, because you're blind, dead in sin and trespasses, spiritually blind, double dead. That's right. God has to give you Life, touch your eyes so you can see, perform a miracle, and make you a miracle, and then you can see the miracle-working God. That's the first thing.
A Christian is to be Christ-like. And a Christian cannot be a Christian until Christ comes into the man, the Life of Christ in him. Then it produces the Life that Christ lived, and you do the things that Christ did. What am I talking about? Personal relationship to Christ. What is it? Is your life worthy of the Gospel?
Satan doesn't care how religious you are, or how right you are in your Doctrine. If you miss that Life, you won't come up, anyhow. No matter how religious, how good, how many churches you've belonged to or will belong to, it doesn't matter one thing unless you have been born again.
