The Cross on the Hill and in My Heart

And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

—Galatians 5:24

 

One time a young man came to an old saint…and said to him, “Father, what does it mean to be crucified?” The old man thought for a moment and said, “Well, to be crucified means three things. First, the man who is crucified is facing only one direction.” I like that—facing only one direction…and that is the direction of God and Christ and the Holy Ghost…the direction of sanctification and the direction of the Spirit-filled life.

And the old man scratched his scraggly gray hair and said, “One thing more, son, about a man on a cross—he’s not going back.” The fellow going out to die on the cross doesn’t say to his wife, “Good-bye, honey. I’ll be back shortly after five.”

When you go out to die on the cross you bid good-bye—you’re not going back!…Get a man converted who knows that if he joins Jesus Christ he’s finished,…he’s not going back—then you have a real Christian indeed. TCC012-013

In every Christian’s heart there is a cross and a throne, and the Christian is on the throne till he puts himself on the cross. ROR066
