The Holy Ghost is the very life and power of Christianity, and without Him the Church is like a ship without fire in her engine, or steam in her boiler; like an army of soldiers lying lifeless; like Ezekiel’s vision in the plain; like a body without an animated soul.
The Church was never intended to be a natural and intellectual organization, but a supernatural instrumentality wholly dependent upon the direct power of God for al her efficiency, and therefore, needing to be ever separated from the arm of flesh and the strength of mere human agencies.
The Church in which the Holy Ghost abides is no mere sectarian fragment, but the whole body of believers united to Christ the Living Head.
