My Utmost For His Highest : "Placed In The Light"

December 26, 2011

If we walk in the light, as He is in the light the blood
of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1 John 1:7
To mistake conscious freedom from sin for deliverance from sin by the
Atonement is a great error. No man knows what sin is until he is born
again. Sin is what Jesus Christ faced on Calvary. The evidence that I
am delivered from sin is that I know the real nature of sin in me. It
takes the last reach of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, that is, the
impartation of His absolute perfection, to make a man know what sin
The Holy Spirit applies the Atonement to us in the unconscious realm
as well as in the realm of which we are conscious, and it is only
when we get a grasp of the unrivalled power of the Spirit in us that
we understand the meaning of 1 John 1:7, "the blood of Jesus Christ
cleanseth us from all sin." This does not refer to conscious sin
only, but to the tremendously profound understanding of sin which
only the Holy Ghost in me realizes.
If I walk in the light as God is in the light, not in the light of my
conscience, but in the light of God - if I walk there, with nothing
folded up, then there comes the amazing revelation, the blood of
Jesus Christ cleanses me from all sin so that God Almighty can see
nothing to censure in me. In my consciousness it works with a keen
poignant knowledge of what sin is. The love of God at work in me
makes me hate with the hatred of the Holy Ghost all that is not in
keeping with God's holiness. To walk in the light means that
everything that is of the darkness drives me closer into the centre
of the light.
