From the inspired pen of Ellen G. White flowed a steady stream of messages of encouragement, counsel, instruction and enlightenment. The gems in this collection were gleaned from her books, periodical articles, and unpublished letters and manuscripts. Each reading holds forth the highest possible standard of spiritual attainment, offering to every son and daughter of God "an outlay of heaven's treasures, an excellency of power" that will place the redeemed "higher than the angels who had not fallen." In every paragraph is heard the Spirit's call to lift the cross - and "those who lift the cross will find that . . . the cross lifts them."
