My Utmost For His Highest : "The Collision Of God And Sin"


April 6, 2012


Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the

1 Peter 2:24

The Cross of Jesus is the revelation of God's judgment on sin. Never
tolerate the idea of martyrdom about the Cross of Jesus Christ. The
Cross was a superb triumph in which the foundations of hell were
shaken. There is nothing more certain in Time or Eternity than what
Jesus Christ did on the Cross: He switched the whole of the human
race back into a right relationship with God. He made Redemption the
basis of human life, that is, He made a way for every son of man to
get into communion with God.

The Cross did not happen to Jesus: He came on purpose for it. He is
"the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." The whole meaning
of the Incarnation is the Cross. Beware of separating God manifest in
the flesh from the Son becoming sin. The Incarnation was for the
purpose of Redemption. God became incarnate for the purpose of
putting away sin; not for the purpose of Self-realization. The Cross
is the centre of Time and of Eternity, the answer to the enigmas of

The Cross is not the cross of a man but the Cross of God, and the
Cross of God can never be realized in human experience. The Cross is
the exhibition of the nature of God, the gateway whereby any
individual of the human race can enter into union with God. When we
get to the Cross, we do not go through it; we abide in the life to
which the Cross is the gateway.

The centre of salvation is the Cross of Jesus, and the reason it is
so easy to obtain salvation is because it cost God so much. The Cross
is the point where God and sinful man merge with a crash and the way
to life is opened - but the crash is on the heart of God.
