My Utmost For His Highest : "The Impartial Power Of God"

December 8, 2011

For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that
are sanctified.
Hebrews 10:1
We trample the blood of the Son of God under foot if we think we are
forgiven because we are sorry for our sins. The only explanation of
the forgiveness of God and of the unfathomable depth of His
forgetting is the Death of Jesus Christ. Our repentance is merely the
outcome of our personal realization of the Atonement which He has
worked out for us. "Christ made unto us wisdom, and
righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption." When we realize
that Christ is made all this to us, the boundless joy of God begins;
wherever the joy of God is not present, the death sentence is at
It does not matter who or what we are, there is absolute
reinstatement into God by the death of Jesus Christ and by no other
way, not because Jesus Christ pleads, but because He died. It is not
earned, but accepted. All the pleading which deliberately refuses to
recognize the Cross is of no avail; it is battering at another door
than the one which Jesus has opened. I don't want to come that way,
it is too humiliating to be received as a sinner. "There is none
other Name . . ." The apparent heartlessness of God is the expression
of His real heart, there is boundless entrance in His way. "We have
forgiveness through His blood." Identification with the death of
Jesus Christ means identification with Him to the death of everything
that never was in Him.
God is justified in saving bad men only as He makes them good. Our
Lord does not pretend we are all right when we are all wrong. The
Atonement is a propitiation whereby God through the death of Jesus
makes an unholy man holy.
