Days of Heaven on Earth

Saturday, November 18, 2017

Great is the difference between action and transaction. We may be constantly acting without accomplishing anything, but a transaction is action that passes beyond the point of return and becomes a permanent committal.

Salvation is a transaction between the soul and Christ in which the matter passes beyond recall. Sanctification is a great transaction in which we are utterly surrendered, irrevocably consecrated and wholly committed to the Holy Spirit; then He comes and seals the transaction and undertakes the work. Our covenant for our Lord's healing should be just as explicit, definite and irrevocable.

This should also be true of the covenants to which God is leading His children from time to time in regard to other matters of obedience and service. God grant that during this hallowed day many a consecrated life may be able to say with new significance and permanence, Tis done, the great transaction's done."

For the living Vine is Jesus;

in whose fullness we may hide;

And find our life and fruitfulness

As, we in Him abide.

Scripture

And he that sat upon the throne said, . . . It is doneRevelation 21:5-6
