My Utmost For His Highest : "Moral Divinity"


April 11, 2012


For if we have been planted together in the likeness of
His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His

Romans 6:5

Co-Resurrection. The proof that I have been through crucifixion with
Jesus is that I have a decided likeness to Him. The incoming of the
Spirit of Jesus into me readjusts my personal life to God. The
resurrection of Jesus has given Him authority to impart the life of
God to me, and my experimental life must be constructed on the basis
of His life. I can have the resurrection life of Jesus now, and it
will show itself in holiness.

The idea all through the apostle Paul's writings is that after the
moral decision to be identified with Jesus in His death has been
made, the resurrection life of Jesus invades every bit of my human
nature. It takes omnipotence to live the life of the Son of God in
mortal flesh. The Holy Spirit cannot be located as a Guest in a
house, He invades every thing. When once I decide that my "old man"
(i.e., the heredity of sin) should be identified with the death of
Jesus, then the Holy Spirit invades me. He takes charge of
everything, my part is to walk in the light and to obey all that He
reveals. When I have made the moral decision about sin, it is easy to
reckon actually that I am dead unto sin, because I find the life of
Jesus there all the time. Just as there is only one stamp of
humanity, so there is only one stamp of holiness, the holiness of
Jesus, and it is His holiness that is gifted to me. God puts the
holiness of His Son into me, and I belong to a new order spiritually.
