And as for you, the anointing which ye received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any one teach you; but as his anointing teacheth you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie, and even as it taught you, ye abide in him. 1 John 2.27.

A servant of God once told this story. A brother came to him and asked whether he could do a certain thing. "Do you know in yourself?" he inquired. To which the brother immediately replied, "I know." Some days later this brother came back again to ask the servant of the Lord about another matter. The latter answered him in the same way as before: "Do you know inside yourself?" "Oh, I know, I know," he again replied. The brother came back a third time, and for the third time the servant of God asked him, "What does your inside tell you?" And immediately he once more replied that he knew. At that moment God's servant said in his heart (though he did not utter anything with his lips): "Why, my friend, do you forsake the near and seek the far? You have something in you that will teach you concerning all things, and is true, and is no lie." Let me say here and now that this something is the law of life. It teaches us what we should or should not do.
