You no more need a holiday from spiritual concentration than your heart needs a holiday from beating.

From 2 Chronicles 15:17:  “But the high places were not taken out of Israel.  Nevertheless the heart of Asa was true all his days.”

Salvation means that the Spirit of God has brought me into touch with God’s personality, and I am thrilled with something infinitely greater than myself; I am caught up into the abandonment of God.

From John 3:16:  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life.”

What our Lord wants us to present to Him is not goodness, nor honesty, nor endeavor, but real solid sin; that is all He can take from us.  And what does He give in exchange for our sin?  Real solid righteousness.  

From Galatians 2:20:  “And it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.  And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

When we touch the bedrock of the reality of the Gospel in God, we shall never bother God any further with little personal plaints.

From 1 Corinthians 1:17:  “For Christ did not send me to baptize but to proclaim the gospel, and not with eloquent wisdom, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its power.”

The disciples went to sleep when they should have kept awake, and when they realized what they had done it produced despair.  Never let the sense of failure corrupt your new action.

From Matthew 26:45-46:  “Then He returned to the disciples and said to them, ‘Are you still sleeping and resting?  Look, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners.  Rise!  Let us go!  Here comes my betrayer!'”

We have to keep letting go, and slowly and surely the great full life of God will invade us in every part, and men will take knowledge of us that we have been with Jesus.

From Romans 6:9-11:  “We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over Him.  The death He died, He died to sin, once for all; but the life He lives, He lives to God.  So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

The Holy Spirit cannot be located as a Guest in a house, He invades everything.  He takes charge of everything, my part is to walk in the light and to obey all that He reveals.

From Romans 6:4-5:  “Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”

The Cross is the point where God and sinful man merge with a crash and the way of life is opened–but the crash is on the heart of God.

From 1 Peter 2:24:  “He himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.”

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.

From Luke 24:25-26:  “Then he said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have declared!  Was it not necessary that the Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into His glory?”

Have I entered into the glorious privilege of being crucified with Christ until all that is left is the life of Christ in my flesh and blood?

From Romans 6:6-8:  “We know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin.  For whoever has died is freed from sin.  But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him.”
