In our previous chapter we have touched several times upon the matter of service for the Lord. As we come now to look at the
provision that God has made to meet the problem created by the soul-life of man, it will be helpful if we approach that problem
by considering first the principles which govern our work for Him and from which no one who tries to serve Him may deviate.
The basis of our salvation, as we well know, is the fact of our Lord’s death and resurrection; but the conditions
of our service are no less definite. Just as the fact of the death and resurrection of the Lord is the ground of our acceptance
with God, so the principle of death and resurrection is the basis of our life and service for Him.
