Advancing in Christian Experience Minneapolis General Conference Sabbath,October 20,1888 – Ms 8,1888
You cannot be a fruitful Christian and have a knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ unless you are a practical Christian,unless you are making progress all the time in divine life. This is all important.
I wish you could see and feel that if you are not advancing you are retrograding.
Now Christ is in the heavenly sanctuary. And what is He doing? Making atonement for us,cleansing the sanctuary from the sins of the people. Then we must enter by faith into the sanctuary with Him,we must commence the work in the sanctuary of our souls. We are to cleanse ourselves from all defilement. We must “cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
We can be filled with all the fullness of God. Our lives may measure with the life of God. Then can we press back the powers of darkness. Glory to God in the highest! I love Him because He first loved me.
