Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
What is the distinction between the believing that produces the witness within and the belief that is Pharisee-like? The true believing is an active acceptance of the Light of Christ, the life in Him, as our living guide. The Pharisee-like belief is an acceptance of certain propositions while at the same time we hide ourselves from the revealing light of Christ that would make our true condition manifest.
What is the witness within that results from believing the light of Christ and walking in the light Christ has enlightened us with? This witness is the inward testimony that we have seen the serpent's head bruised. It is the testimony that we are living a life that is not being overcome by evil. It is the evidence that Christ's life, not the power of death and darkness, gives rise to our actions. Here the true praises arise to God.
So believe in the light that you may become children of the day. This was and still is Christ's admonition to his disciples.
This and more was what we covered as we continued our study of Sermon III in That Thy Candles May Always Be Burning.
