Jesus stooping to heal my poor broken Heart is greater in doing that than in creating the Universe

J N Darby (1800-82)

I love to tell God that He numbers and names the stars; the infinitude of God is seen in that; He spangled the heavens and upholds it by the might of His power; but He heals the broken hearted.  Jesus has stooped down to my poor broken heart and has healed it; and He is greater in doing that than in creating the universe.

The Light of Another World

In the sanctuary, you get the light of another world, of which Christ is the Centre.  The apostle speaks of it, and he says, “Though our outward man perish, yet the inward is renewed day by day.  For our light affliction which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things that are not seen” (2 Cor 4:16).   That is the holiest.  The apostle lived in the light of another world, and he held fast to it.  You learn in the sanctuary what to hold fast to.  Do you not see that what you are in touch with down here must come to an end?  You are down here in natural life, and you can thank God for all the mercies you partake of in this life, but the whole question is whether you see another world where there is no failure or decay.  Everything in this world is marked by decay, but there is not a trace of death in the holiest.  You have passed death, and you have got the sense in your souls that you belong to another scene where no death can be…It should be that you see you belong to that world, that blessed scene, in which Christ is…Christianity proposes to put you in present touch with what abides, with what will not decay, and with what we shall never lose.

W Johnson – Luke 10 – He took Him to an Inn – We have an Inn here; we have a Home there

Then he took him to an inn.  The moment a man is converted this world is turned into an inn to him.  We have an inn here; we have a home there

 

William Johnson (1850-1921)

Then he took him to an inn.  The moment a man is converted this world is turned into an inn to him.  We have an inn here; we have a home there.  If I were staying at an inn in this place, you might ask me how I was getting on.  How do you like your quarters?  Oh, I should say it is a very good stopping place but I’m hoping to be at home soon.  We are going to be off directly.  “He brought him to an inn”.  He made a stranger of him.

Do you know who the host is? The Holy Ghost.  The Lord said just as He was going away, speaking of the Father, “He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever”.  Every Christian is committed to the care of the Holy Ghost.

And what next?  “Whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again I will repay thee”.  I am coming back to fetch him.  The man was cured, carried, cared for and called for.

Thank God for the last.  The precious Saviour, the Son of God is coming to fetch us.  Christ shall do it all.  I am not looking to die.  I may fall asleep, but I’m not looking for that, but for the One who has cured me, carried me, cared for me and will call for me.

How many of you would like him to come to night?  Would like to hear his voice?  Every Christian on the earth will be caught up.  “The dead in Christ shall rise first, then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them” –  a glorious company –  “to meet the Lord in the air”.
