The Bounty of the Destitute!

My Utmost for His Highest

The Bounty Of The Destitute

Being justified freely by His grace…

Click link below to study this verse: Romans 3:24
http://www.studylight.org/desk/?query=ro+3:24

The Gospel of the grace of God awakens an intense longing in human
souls
and an equally intense resentment, because the revelation which it
brings
is not palatable. There is a certain pride in man that will give and
give,
but to come and accept is another thing. I will give my life to
martyrdom,
I will give myself in consecration, I will do anything, but do not
humiliate me to the level of the most hell-deserving sinner and tell me
that all I have to do is to accept the gift of salvation through Jesus
Christ.

We have to realize that we cannot earn or win anything from God; we
must
either receive it as a gift or do without it. The greatest blessing
spiritually is the knowledge that we are destitute; until we get there
Our
Lord is powerless. He can do nothing for us if we think we are
sufficient
of ourselves, we have to enter into His Kingdom through the door of
destitution. As long as we are rich, possessed of anything in the way
of
pride or independence, God cannot do anything for us. It is only when
we
get hungry spiritually that we receive the Holy Spirit. The gift of the
essential nature of God is made effectual in us by the Holy Spirit, He
imparts to us the quickening life of Jesus, which puts “the beyond”
within, and immediately “the beyond” has come within, it rises up to
“the
above,” and we are lifted into the domain where Jesus lives. (John
3:5.)
