Mark H discussed on National Prayer Chapel, Pilgrim's Progress
He must be utterly given over to jesus regardless of the painful price that is necessary to be paid as crucifixion takes place. You cannot enter the school of the holy spirit and not enter into crucifixion. They go together. They are one. I have been crucified with christ. I no longer live. Christ lives in me. Is that your spirit condition today before a holy and righteous god. Is that how you stand with the life. I live in the body. I live by faith in the son of god notice. It does not say the life. I live in the body. I live by myself. Worry or i live by my credit cards or i live by my medical treatments. No the life. I live in the body. I live by faith in the son of god who love me and gave himself for me. I do not set aside. The grace of god for righteousness could be gained to the law. Christ died for nothing you cannot earn righteousness. Righteousness is a free gift. That has rained down on the person who is willing to begin saying no to his flesh and who is willing then to allow himself to be crucified. Jesus christ if you look at mark the eighth chapter if anyone would come after me. He must deny himself take up his cross and follow me for whoever wants to save. His life will lose it but whoever loses his life for me and for the whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel. We'll save it. What good is it for. A man to gain the whole world yet. Four foot his soul. Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul if anyone is a shamed of me and my words and this adultress and sinful generation the son of men will be ashamed of him when he comes in his father's glory with his holy angels. This is mark h chapter verse thirty four. So let's be clear you must make a decision and ob straight up with you. I have dealt with too many men and women who are so full of themselves and their truth that they twist and turn the scriptures to say what they want them to say and then feel oppressed when people do not quickly agree with them adult with too many men and women who are utterly unclean sexually but come to church and pretend that they're righteous before god and that they're eager for the work of the gospel to go forward but that's all they are their words but as soon as they leave the church house they go back to their lusting after the unclean and after the money after their dishonesty.
