My Utmost For His Highest : "Getting There"


June 13, 2012


Come ye after Me.

Mark 1:17

One of the greatest hindrances in coming to Jesus is the excuse of
temperament. We make our temperament and our natural affinities
barriers to coming to Jesus. The first thing we realize when we come
to Jesus is that He pays no attention whatever to our natural
affinities. We have the notion that we can consecrate our gifts to
God. You cannot consecrate what is not yours; there is only one thing
you can consecrate to God, and that is your right to yourself (Romans
12:1). If you will give God your right to yourself, He will make a
holy experiment out of you. God's experiments always succeed. The one
mark of a saint is the moral originality which springs from
abandonment to Jesus Christ. In the life of a saint there is this
amazing wellspring of original life all the time; the Spirit of God
is a well of water springing up, perennially fresh. The saint
realizes that it is God Who engineers circumstances, consequently
there is no whine, but a reckless abandon to Jesus. Never make a
principle out of your experience; let God be as original with other
people as He is with you.

If you abandon to Jesus, and come when He says "Come," He will
continue to say "Come" through you; you will go out into life
reproducing the echo of Christ's "Come." That is the result in every
soul who has abandoned and come to Jesus.

Have I come to Jesus? Will I come now?
