The next best thing to do Ask if you have not Received. For everyone that asketh receiveth. Luke 11:10. There is nothing more difficult than to ask. We will long and desire and crave and suffer, but not until we are at the extreme limit will we ask. A sense of unreality makes us ask. Have you ever asked out of the depths of moral poverty? “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God …” but be sure that you do lack wisdom. You cannot bring yourself up against Reality...

Work out what God works in Work out your own salvation. Phil. 2:12–13 .

The Nestorian Heresy “Being made perfect, [Jesus] became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him.”- Hebrews 5:9 Docetism, Eutychianism, and Apollinarianism differed on their views of the two natures of Christ, but they agreed upon the unity of His person.
