"COME WITH ME" John 1:39

"Where the self-interest sleeps and the real interest awakens. Master,
where dwellest Thou? . . Come and see." "Come with Me." John 1:39.

"They abode with Him that day." That is about all some of us ever do, then
we wake up to actualities, self-interest arises and the abiding is passed.
There is no condition of life in which we cannot abide in Jesus.

"Thou art Simon, thou shalt be called Cephas." God writes the new name on
those places only in our lives where He has erased the pride and
self-sufficiency and self-interest. Some of us have the new name in spots
only, like spiritual measles. In sections we look all right.

When we have our best spiritual mood on, you would think we were very high-toned
saints; but don't look at us when we are not in that mood. The disciple is
one who has the new name written all over him; self-interest and pride and
self-sufficiency has been completely erased.

Pride is the deification of self, and this to-day in some of us is not of
the order of the Pharisee, but of the publican. To say "Oh, I'm no saint,"
is acceptable to human pride, but it is unconscious blasphemy against God.
It literally means that you defy God to make you a saint, "I am much too
weak and hopeless, I am outside the reach of the Atonement." Humility
before men may be unconscious blasphemy before God. Why are you not a
saint? It is either that you do not want to be a saint, or that you do not
believe God can make you one. It would be all right, you say; if God saved
you and took you straight to heaven. That is just what He will do! "We
will come unto him, and make our abode with him." Make no conditions, let
Jesus be everything, and He will take you home with Him not only for a
day, but forever.

God Bless Your HEaRT as you hold on unto the WORD of Eternal Life and as
you continue to Reign in Righteousness.

Yours faithfully,
