Read: John 9:24-25

One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see (John 9:25).

Testimony Of A Scholar

Dr. Daniel Steele was one of the most scholarly proponents of Bible holiness in modern times. Preaching before Boston University School of Theology while a member of the faculty there, he gave his personal testimony.

“Brethren, on the subject of the fulness of the Holy Spirit as a possible and sudden attainment in modern times, I am not here to theorize, to philosophize, to dogmatize, but to testify…

“Six months ago I made the discovery that I was living in the pre-Pentecostal state of religious experience, admiring Christ’s character, and in a degree loving His person, but without the conscious blessing of the Comforter. I settled the question of privilege by a study of St. John’s Gospel and St. Paul’s Epistles, and earnestly sought for the Comforter. I prayed, consecrated, confessed my state, and believed Christ’s word. Very suddenly, after about three weeks’ diligent search, the Comforter came with power and great joy to my heart. He took my feet out of the realm of doubt and weakness, and planted them forever on the Rock of assurance and strength.

“My joy is a river of limpid waters, brimming and daily overflowing the banks, unspeakable and full of glory… I am a freed man. Christ is my emancipator, bringing me into the glorious liberty of the children of God… My efficiency in Christ’s service is greatly multiplied… Oh, that I had known this twenty years ago! But I thank God that after a struggle of more than a score of years

“I have entered the valley of blessing so sweet, And Jesus abides with me there; And His Spirit and blood make my cleansing complete, And His perfect love casteth out fear.”
