TODAY'S SERMON: FOLLOW HOLINESS

FROM THE PULPIT...

yancey

I was a Christian for a year or more when one day I looked at a library shelf and was struck with the title of a book, The Christian's Secret Of a Happy Life. As I read it my heart was set on fire to find this life of freedom and fullness. I reached page forty-two when the Inner Voice said very distinctly, "Now is the time to find." I pleaded that I did not know what I wanted, that when I finished it, I would seek. But the Inner Voice was imperious, "Now is the time to seek." I tried to read on, but the words seemed blurred. I was up against a divine insistence, so closed the book, dropped on my knees and asked, "What shall I do?" The Voice replied, "Will you give me your all-your very all?" After a moment's hesitation I replied, "I will."
"Then take my all, you are cleansed," the Voice said with a strange, inviting firmness. "I believe it," I said and arose from my knees. I walked around the room affirming it over and over, and pushing my hands away from me as if to push away my doubt. This I did for ten minutes, when suddenly I was filled with a strange refining fire that seemed to course through
every portion of my being in cleansing waves. It was all very quiet and I had hold of myself-and yet the divine waves could be felt from the inmost center of my being to my fingertips. My whole being was being fused into one, and through the whole there was a sense of sacredness and awe, and the most exquisite joy. Very emotional? So be it! But I knew then, and I know now, that I was not being merely emotionally stirred, but the 'Very sources of my life were being cleansed and were taken possession of by Life itself. My will was just as much involved as my emotion. The fact is the whole of life was on a permanently higher level.-
Stanley Jones, Missionary to India
