"Then said Jesus: 'Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.'" He had so identified himself with the weakness of the cross, and its shame, that in his whole life and conduct he would prove that in everything he sought to show forth the likeness and the spirit of the crucified Jesus. In the former we have the life of the ordinary Christian doing his utmost to keep the commandments of the law, and to walk in His ways, but ever finding how much there is of failure and shortcoming. Romans 7:4,6. -- "It is finished." Nothing less is expected of us than a Christ-like life and a Christ-like love, proving itself in all our dealings with our brethren.

And every day that our confidence grows fuller in Christ's finished work must see our heart more entirely yielding itself like Him, a whole burnt offering in the service of God and His love. When the disciples heard and obeyed the call of Jesus to follow Him, they honestly meant to do so, but as He later on taught them what that would imply, they were far from being ready to yield immediate obedience.

The two expressions are most significant, as indicating the two essential needs there are in the redemption of man in Christ Jesus. Here with the rich young ruler He reveals from the side of God what is needed to give men the will and the power thus to sacrifice all, if they are to enter the kingdom. We need to pray God that this disposition may be found in all Christians and preachers of the gospel, through the power of the Holy Spirit. And so He would have each disciple bear his cross -- the sentence of death upon himself and his evil, carnal nature.

"I have been crucified with Christ; yet I live; and yet no longer I, but Christ liveth in me." The two are at deadly, irreconcilable enmity. Let us now turn to the Master Himself to hear what He has to teach us. How clearly this appears from what Paul says: "If we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him"; it is the knowledge and experience that gives us the assurance of the power of His resurrection in us. Blessed Lord, let the spirit and the love that was in Thee be in me too, that I may at any cost seek to win the souls for whom Thou hast died. "They that are in Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with the passions and the lusts thereof." There may be small things about which we are not conscientious, and so we bring harm to ourselves and to God's work. And Christ would have His disciples understand that their nature was so evil and corrupt that it was only in losing their natural life that they could find the true life. And so we read in Hebrews 10: "Let us enter into the Holy Place by the blood of Jesus." That veil was the type of sinful human nature; even though it had received the forgiveness of sin, full access and fellowship with God was impossible. As this great truth opens up to us it will help us to understand how in our life, and in our fellowship with Christ, it is impossible for us to share His life until we have first in very deed surrendered ourselves every day to die to sin and the world, and so to abide in the unbroken fellowship with our crucified Lord. The body now gives expression to the terrible experience of what it passed through when the fire of God's wrath against sin came upon Christ in the hour of His desertion. The Spirit taught Peter at once to preach Christ crucified; it was through that preaching that the three thousand received the Spirit. And this not as a truth that our minds can master and appropriate, but a reality which the Holy Spirit will reveal within us. I concentrated on a cross that I wanted on that Friday.

Christ had for the first time definitely announced that He would have to suffer much and be killed and be raised again. These guys are the modern Murrays. --Revelation 1:5,6. "Thou shalt" is done away with; the power of the Spirit takes its place. Heavenly Father, how shall I thank Thee for the unspeakable gift of Thy Son on the cross!

It was this awful desertion breaking in upon that life of childlike fellowship with the Father, in which He had always walked, that caused Him the agony and the bloody sweat in Gethsemane.

Blessed Lord, make known to us day by day through the Holy Spirit the secret of our life in Thee: "We in Thee, and Thou in us." And if we ask how we can do this, we find the answer in the mind in which Christ died.

The next three reveal love in the tremendous sacrifice that it brought, necessary to deliver us from our sins and give the victory over every foe. Every believer "has crucified the flesh with the passions and the lusts thereof" (Galatians 5:24). It may be that the truth of our being crucified with Christ has not been taught. In this last expression we have the great thought that a Christian cannot live unto righteousness except as he knows that he has died unto sin. It is not till we hate this life with a deadly hatred that we will be ready to give up the old nature to die the death that is its due. The impotence of the Church is greatly owing to the fact that this cross-bearing mind of Jesus is so little preached and practiced. Father, I beseech Thee humbly, teach me and Thy people so to know this work of the Spirit and to yield ourselves to Him to take full possession of us, that the crucified Lord Jesus may be glorified in us. --Matthew 16:24. And the Spirit teaches us to love the cross, and to partake of the life â¦ It is as we study and realize that it was for His bearing the cross that God so highly exalted Him, that we shall walk in His footsteps bearing our cross after Him with the flesh condemned and crucified.

This total dying to self lies at the root of all true piety. When Adam sinned, he fell out of the life of heaven and of God into the life of the world and of self. Instead of denying himself, Peter denied his Lord: "I know not the man." "Have this mind in you which was also in Christ Jesus." Physicians tell us that in crucifixion the whole body is in agony with a terrible fever and pain. "He believed in God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth the things that are not as though they were." "Behold thy mother!" A few days later I bought the book and started reading it with the background information that she gave me.

Our "old man" must be crucified with Christ (Romans 6:6), and in the resurrection of Christ we find the roots of our new life (1_Peter 1:3). With what readiness of joy and love Christ gives the immediate answer to his prayer! Taking Adam as a figure of Christ, he teaches that just as we all really and actually died in Adam, so that his death reigns in our nature, even so, in Christ, those who believe in Him actually and effectually died to sin, were set free from it, and became partakers of the new holy life of Christ.

At the beginning of His ministry He said (John 4:34): "My meat is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and TO FINISH HIS WORK." Christ had spoken about bearing the cross from the human side, as the one condition of discipleship. The first three words on the cross reveal love in its outflow to men. To be a follower of Christ implies a heart given up to testify for Christ in the midst of the world, if by any means some may be won. He that loseth his life for My sake shall find it."

Let Thy Spirit reveal to us that as truly as we died in Thee, Thou now livest in us the life that was crucified and now is glorified in heaven. He gives new meaning to it when He says that a man must hate his own life and renounce all that he has.

The only meaning the disciples could attach to these words was from what they had often seen, when an evil-doer who had been sentenced to death by the cross was led out bearing his cross to the place of execution. You know how the first section of Romans is devoted to the doctrine of justification by faith in Christ. If we have learned through the Spirit to understand the cross, then we have lost our life and will no longer expect any good from our old nature, and will not judge others, but ourselves only. The Christian suffers inconceivable loss when he thinks of entering into the Holy Place in faith and prayer, and then feels himself free to enjoy the friendship of the world, so long as he does nothing actually sinful. It means that we realize by faith how actually we shared with Christ in His death, and now, as He lives in us, abide in unceasing fellowship with Him, the Crucified One. We have prayed too little that the Holy Spirit might glorify Christ in us in the fellowship and the conformity to His sufferings.

We need the Holy Spirit to make our death to sin in Christ such a reality that we know ourselves to be forever free from its power, and so yield our members to God as instruments of righteousness. -- John 19:30. The pictures could be presented in any order because Murray does not develop the theme of atonement in the way he does so nicely in The Power of The Blood. Christ claims all. "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world." Paul here is very bold in speaking of the intimate union that there was between Christ living in him and the life he lived in the flesh, with all its suffering. No self-pleasing in eating and drinking, no comfort or ease, should for a moment keep him from showing the spirit of the cross in his daily life, or from sacrificing all, like his Master. Most Christians think that as long as they do not commit actual sin they are at liberty to possess and enjoy as much of the world as they please. "If we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him." "Having died to that wherein we were holden, so that we serve in newness of the spirit." He speaks of his purpose, not only in the matter of his preaching, but in his whole spirit and life to prove how he in everything seeks to act in conformity to the crucified Christ. The love that cared for His enemies cared too for His friends. What a different relationship to the pleasures and attractions of the world the Christian has who by the Holy Spirit has learned to say: "I have been crucified with Christ; the crucified Christ liveth in me"! But for this cause came I unto this hour.". Every step on the new and living way for entering into God's holy presence maintains the fellowship with the cross of Christ. As we grow in the consciousness of our union with the crucified Christ, we shall experience that the power of His life in us has made us free from the power of sin. "I buffet my body, and bring it into bondage." And that flesh can never by any process of discipline, or struggling, or prayer, be made better than it is! And then he teaches us in what that mind consisted: Being in the form of God, He emptied Himself; He was made in the likeness of men; He took the form of a servant; He humbled Himself; He became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Murray is just as convicting as ever: "It is because Christians so little bear the mark of this self-emptying and humiliation even unto death that the world refuses to believe in the possibility of a Christ-filled life". It is He Himself who calls us: "If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me." That meant they were to consider their life as sinful and under sentence of death. Paul taught the Galatians: "Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh." But remember it is only as the Holy Spirit makes Christ's death a reality within us that we shall know, not by force of argument or conviction, but in the reality of the power of a divine life, that we are in very deed dead to sin. This was the way that led to the throne and the glory of God. "Unto Him who loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. All the requirements of God's law will be fulfilled, not in those who strive to keep and fulfill that law -- a thing that is utterly impossible -- but in those who walk by the Spirit, and in His power live out the life that Christ won for us on the cross and imparted to us in the resurrection. Let us try to understand this. And Paul puts it here even more strongly, "They that are in Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh.". But with that He uses a most significant expression revealing what is implied in the cross: "If any man come after Me, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF, and take up his cross." The believer is not only dead to sin, but dead to the law. In His power we accept our death with Christ on the cross as the power of our daily life. Surely the thought that the power of the eternal Life is working in us, ought to make us willing and glad to die the death that brings us into the fellowship and the power of life in a risen Christ.
