My Utmost For His Highest : "Liberty On The Abyss Of The Gospel"


May 6, 2012


Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ
hath made us free.

Galatians 5:1

A spiritually minded man will never come to you with the demand -
"Believe this and that;" but with the demand that you square your
life with the standards of Jesus. We are not asked to believe the
Bible, but to believe the One Whom the Bible reveals (cf. John
5:39-40). We are called to present liberty of conscience, not liberty
of view. If we are free with the liberty of Christ, others will be
brought into that same liberty - the liberty of realizing the
dominance of Jesus Christ.

Always keep your life measured by the standards of Jesus. Bow your
neck to His yoke alone, and to no other yoke whatever; and be careful
to see that you never bind a yoke on others that is not placed by
Jesus Christ. It takes God a long time to get us out of the way of
thinking that unless everyone sees as we do, they must be wrong. That
is never God';s view. There is only one liberty, the liberty of Jesus
at work in our conscience enabling us to do what is right.

Don't get impatient, remember how God dealt with you - with patience
and with gentleness; but never water down the truth of God. Let it
have its way and never apologize for it. Jesus said, &"Go and make
disciples," not "make converts to your opinions."
