Jack Taylor, in his best-selling book The Key to Triumphant Living tells that even as a minister, he came to a point of almost complete exhaustion trying to live the Christian life in his own strength. Jack wrote that after he became a Christian, no one told him about the Holy Spirit. So he thought he had to live the Christian life on his own. His father was a farmer—a very good farmer. Jack reasoned that if his father could become a good farmer by hard work then he could become a good Christian in exactly the same way. So he worked with all of his might, almost to the point of total despair, to be a good Christian and a good minister. The end result was frustration and defeat. That’s when he found the key to triumphant living. That key was and is the power of God’s Spirit living in us.
