My Utmost For His Highest : "His Resurrection Destiny"


April 8, 2012


Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to
enter into His glory?

Luke 24:2

Our Lord's Cross is the gateway into His life: His Resurrection means
that He has power now to convey His life to me. When I am born again
from above, I receive from the Risen Lord His very life.

Our Lord's Resurrection destiny is to bring "many sons unto glory."
The fulfilling of His destiny gives Him the right to make us sons and
daughters of God. We are never in the relationship to God that the
Son of God is in; but we are brought by the Son into the relation of
sonship. When Our Lord rose from the dead, He rose to an absolutely
new life, to a life He did not live before He was incarnate. He rose
to a life that had never been before; and His resurrection means for
us that we are raised to His risen life, not to our old life. One day
we shall have a body like unto His glorious body, but we can know now
the efficacy of His resurrection and walk in newness of life. "I
would know Him in the power of His resurrection."

"As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give
eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him." "Holy Spirit" is the
experimental name for Eternal Life working in human beings here and
now. The Holy Spirit is the Deity in proceeding power Who applies the
Atonement to our experience. Thank God it is gloriously and
majestically true that the Holy Ghost can work in us the very nature
of Jesus if we will obey Him.
