My Utmost For His Highest : "Do You Walk In White?"

January 15, 2012

Buried with Him ... that ... even so we also should walk
in newness of life.
Romans 6:4
No one enters into the experience of entire sanctification without
going through a "white funeral" - the burial of the old life. If
there has never been this crisis of death, sanctification is nothing
more than a vision. There must be a "white funeral," - a death that
has only one resurrection - a resurrection into the life of Jesus
Christ. Nothing can upset such a life, it is one with God for one
purpose, to be a witness to Him.
Have you come to your last days really? You have come to them often
in sentiment, but have you come to them really? You cannot go to your
funeral in excitement, or die in excitement. Death means you stop
being. Do you agree with God that you stop being the striving,
earnest kind of Christian you have been? We skirt the cemetery and
all the time refuse to go to death. It is not striving to go to
death, it is dying - "baptized into His death."
Have you had your "white funeral," or are you sacredly playing the
fool with your soul? Is there a place in your life marked as the last
day, a place to which the memory goes back with a chastened and
extraordinarily grateful remembrance - "Yes, it was then, at that
'white funeral,' that I made an agreement with God."
"This is the will of God, even your sanctification." When you realize
what the will of God is, you will enter into sanctification as
naturally as can be. Are you willing to go through that "white
funeral" now? Do you agree with Him that this is your last day on
earth? The moment of agreement depends upon you.
