 Born Crucified

Some words from the Book "Born Crucified" by L.E. Maxwell of Prairie Bible Institute

------------------------
My sins deserved eternal death
But Jesus died for me
……………………………………………
Though I be nothing, I exult
In Thy divine perfection,
And taste the deep, mysterious joy
Of absolute subjection.

Though I be nothing, I rejoice
To find my all in Thee:
Not I, but CHRIST, forevermore:
Amen! so let it be!
-Lucy A. Bennet
-------------------------------
Across the will of nature
Leads on the path of God;
Not where the flesh delighteth
The feet of Jesus trod.
O bliss to leave behind us
The fetters of the slave,
To leave ourselves behind us,
The grave-clothes and the grave!
--Ter Steegen.
------------------------------------

Lord Crucified, O mark Thy holy Cross
On motive, preference, all fond desires,
On that which self in any form inspires
Set Thou that sign of loss.
And when the touch of death is here and there
Laid on a thing most precious in our eyes,
Let us not wonder, let us recognize
The answer to this prayer.
--Amy Carmichael.
-----------------------------------

Lord, when I am weary with toiling,
And burdensome seem Thy commands,
If my load should lead to complaining,
Lord, show me Thy Hands,--
Thy nail-pierced Hands, Thy cross-torn Hands,
My Saviour, show me Thy Hands.
Christ, if ever my footsteps should falter,
And I be prepared for retreat,
If desert or thorn cause lamenting,
Lord, show me Thy Feet-
Thy bleeding Feet, Thy nail-scarred Feet,-
My Jesus, show me Thy Feet.
O God, dare I show Thee
MY hands and MY feet.
-Brenton Thoburn Badley.
-------------------------------------

CHRYSOSTOM SAYS that when St. Lucian was asked by his persecutors, "Of what country
Art thou?' he replied, "I am a Christian”

"What is your occupation?"
"I am a Christian.'
"Of what family?"
"I am a Christian."

To St. Lucian, Christ was all, whether of country, of occupation, or of family.
-----------------------------------------

I will post others as well.

Sincerely,

Walter

 Re: Born Crucified

More from Born Crucified by L.E. Maxwell:

Dying with Jesus,
By death reckoned mine;
Living with Jesus,
A new life divine

---------------------------------------

He said, "I will forget the dying faces;
The empty places--
They shall be filled again;
0 voices mourning deep within me, cease."
Vain, vain the word, vain, vain:
Not in forgetting lieth peace.

That failing, we try to fill in every twenty-four hours with a ceaseless round of activity.

He said, "I will crowd action upon action,
The strife of faction
Shall stir my spirit to flame;
0 tears that drown the fire of manhood, crew.'
Vain, vain the word; vain, vain:
Not in endeavor lieth peace.

Or, we attempt the opposite. (Fleshly wisdom is resourceful.) We try withdrawal, quiet, aloofness.

He said, "I will withdraw me and be quiet,
Why meddle in life's riot?
Shut be my door to pain.
Desire, thou dost befool me, thou shalt cease."
Vain, vain the word; vain, vain
Not in aloofness lieth peace.

The next resort is to say, "I am a victim, but I'll submit to the inevitable"--a kind of sour
submission.

He said, "I will submit; I am defeated;
God hath depleted
My life of its rich gain.
O futile murmurings; why will ye not cease?"
Vain, vain the word; vain, vain:
Not in submission lieth peace.

He said, "I will submit; I am defeated;
God hath depleted
My life of its rich gain.

O futile murmurings; why will ye not cease?"
Vain, vain the word; vain, vain:
Not in submission lieth peace.
Finally, blessed finally, all the mistaken ways of the flesh having failed, self dies and we learn to say, "I accept the will of my God as good and acceptable and perfect, for loss or for gain."

He said, "I will accept the breaking sorrow
Which God tomorrow Will to His son explain."
Then did the turmoil deep within him cease.
Not vain the word, not vain;
For in acceptance lieth peace.
-----------------------------------

He always wins who sides with God,
To him no chance is lost;
God's will is sweetest to him when
It triumphs at his cost.
Ill, that He blesses, is our good,
And unblest good is ill;
And all is right that seems most wrong,
If it be His sweet will.
-------------------------------------
Willing to take the cross was He,
Willing to suffer misery,
Willing to go to Calvary,
Laying His glory aside;
Willing to hang there on the tree,
Willing to bear the agony,
Willing to die for you and me;
Jesus the Crucified.
----------------------------------

 Re: Born Crucified

Post #3 More from Born Crucified by L.E. Maxwell:

There is no gain but by a loss;
You cannot save but by a cross
The corn of wheat, to multiply,
Must fall into the ground and die.
Wherever you ripe fields behold,
Waving to God their sheaves of gold,
Be sure some corn of wheat has died,
Some soul has there been crucified;
Someone has wrestled, wept and prayed,
And fought hell's legions undismayed.
------------------------------------

From subtle love of softening things,
From easy choices, weakenings
(Not thus are spirits fortified,
Not this way went the Crucified),
From all that dims Thy Calvary,
O Lamb of God, deliver me.
--Amy Carmichael.
---------------------------------------
Ease would cast her spell,
Set our face as flint till twilight's
Vesper bell.
On Thy brow we see a thorn-crown,
Blood-drops in Thy track,
0 forbid that we should ever
Turn us back.
--Amy Carmichael.
----------------------------------------------
When I refuse the easy thing for love of my dear Lord,
And when I choose the harder thing for love of my
dear Lord,When I look up and triumph over every sinful thing,
The things that no one knows about, the cowardly, selfish thing,
And when with heart and will I live to please my glorious King,
That is discipline.
To trample on that curious thing inside me that says
To think of others always, never, never of that "I'll To learn to live according to my
Saviour's word, "Deny,"
That is discipline
------------------------------------

O Christ! who once has seen Thy visioned beauty--
He counts all gain but loss,
And other things are naught if he may win Thee
And share with Thee Thy Cross.

And he on whom its shadow once has fallen,
Walks quietly and apart; He holds the master-key of joy and sorrow
That opens every heart.
The burdened souls that pass him on the highway
Turn back to take his hand,
And murmur low, with tear-wet eyes of anguish,
"You know--you understand."
-Annie Johnson Flint.
…………………………………………………..
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me;
All His wonderful passion and purity.
…………………………………………………..
O cross that liftest up my head,
I dare not ask to fly from thee;
I lay in dust life's glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be.

 Re:

Post #4 Born Crucified by L.E. Maxwell:

Life everywhere replaces death,
In earth, and sea, and sky;
And that the rose may breathe its breath,
Some living thing must die.
……………………………………………………
And all through life I see a cross,
Where the sons of God yield up their breath;
There is no gain except by loss;
There is no life except by death;
There is no vision but by faith;
No glory but by bearing shame;
No justice but by taking blame;
And that Eternal Passion saith
Be emptied of glory and might and name.
Has the reader embraced "his cross" today?
And tomorrow you will do-the same?
……………………………………………………..

And did my Lord on earth endure
Sorrow, and hardship, and distress
That I might sit me down secure
And rest in self-indulgent case?
His delicate disciple, I
Like Him might neither live nor die?
,Master, I have not learnt Thee so;
Thy yoke and burden I receive,
Resolve in all Thy steps to go,
And bless the Cross by which I live,
And curse the wisdom from beneath,
That strives to rob me of Thy death.
--Rev. Charles Wesley
…………………………………………..
Myself, arch-traitor to myself;
My hollowest friend, my deadliest foe,
My clog whatever road I go.
--Christina Rossetti.
………………………………………….
O loving wisdom of our God
When all was sin and shame.
A second Adam to the fight
And to the rescue came!
--Newman
…………………………………………
Make me a captive, Lord,
And then I shall be free;
Force me to render up my sword,
And I shall conqueror be.
My will is not my own
Till Thou hast made it Thine;
If it would reach the monarch's throne
It must its crown resign.
…………………………………………
The truth that David learned to sing,
Its deep fulfillment here attains;
"Tell all the earth the Lord is King!"
Lo, from the Cross, a King He reigns!
…………………………………..
God has His best gifts for the few
Who dare to stand the test.
His second choice He has for those
Who will not have His best.
………………………..
The throne on which He now appears
Was His from everlasting years!
But a new glory crowns His brow,
And every knee to Him shall bowl
--F. M. Pitt.

Post #5 Born Crucified by L.E. Maxwell

[b]Child of the Eternal Father,
Bride of the Eternal Son,
Dwelling-place of God the Spirit,
Thus with Christ made ever one;
Dowered with joy beyond the Angels
Nearest to His throne,
They, the ministers attending
His beloved one:
Granted all my heart's desire,
All things made my own;
Feared by all the powers of evil,
Fearing God alone;
Walking with the Lord in glory
Through the courts divine,
Queen within the royal palace,
Christ forever mine;
Say, poor worldling, can it be,
That my heart should envy thee?
--Ter Steegen.
…………………………………….
Hast thou no scar?
No hidden scar on foot, or side, or hand?
I hear thee sung as mighty in the land,
I hear them hail thy bright ascendant star,
Hast thou no scar?
Hast thou no wound?

Yet I was wounded by the archers, spent,
Leaned Me against a tree to die; and rent
By ravening beasts that compassed me, I swooned:
Hast thou no wound?
No wound? No scar?
Yet, as the Mastcr shall the servant be,
And pierced arc the feet that follow Me;
But thine are whole; can he have followed far
Who has no wound nor scar?
--Amy Carmichael
…………………………………………
a two-edged sword
Of heavenly temper keen,
And double were the wounds it made
Where'er it glanced between.
'Twas death to sin; 'twas life
To all who mourned for sin.
It kindled and it silenced strife,
Made war and peace within.
……………………………………………
FOOLISH enough to depend on Him for wisdom;
WEAK enough to be empowered with His strength;
BASE enough to have no honor, but God's honor;
DESPISED enough to be kept in the dust at His feet;
NOTHING enough for God to be everything.
………………………………………………….

Pitchers for the lamps of God--
Hark, the cry goes forth abroad!
Not the beauty of the make,
But ah, the readiness to break,
Marks the vessels of the Lord
Meet to bear the lighted Word!
………………………………………………
And they of the Church, and they of the World,
Journeyed closely, hand and heart,
And none but the Master, who knoweth all,
Could discern the two apart
…………………………………………..
"God ... hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice" (Ps. 118:27).
……………………………………………
A Christless cross no refuge were for me; A crossless Christ my Savior could not be:
But, O CHRIST CRUCIFIED, I rest in Thee![/b]
…………………………………………….

Sincerely,

Walter

 Re: Born Crucified


I see the crowd in Pilate's hall,
I mark their wrathful mien;
Their shouts of "Crucify!" appall,
With blasphemy between.

And of that shouting multitude
I feel that I am one;
And in that din of voices rude
I recognize my own.

'Twas I that shed the sacred blood,
I nailed Him to the tree,
I crucified the Christ of God,
I joined the mockery.

Around the cross the throng I see
Mocking the Sufferer's groan;
Yet still my voice it seems to be
As if I mocked alone.
--Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)—


Amen,

Walter

 Re: Born Crucified

BORN CRUCIFIED
L. E MAXWELL

FOREWORD

As the facets of a cut diamond flash with exquisite colors in the sunlight, so the Scriptures,illuminated by the Spirit of God, glow with many glorious truths. The kind of Christian life set forth in the New Testament is so far above the experience of many professing Christians that they think it abnormal. Yet it is there, and many through God's grace have found it, and lived it, and described it in such terms as "the Life of Faith," "the Spirit-filled Life," "the Deeper Life," and "the Victorious Life." God has mightily blessed the messages of many servants of His, as for example Brother Lawrence, William Law, Hudson Taylor, Hannah Whitall Smith, the late Charles G.Trumbull, and others.

[b]Emphasizing various aspects of scriptural truth, they have led multitudes into a life of peace and joy and power. Every sincere Christian wants to know how he can overcome temptation and be used of God in His service. How can we find freedom from anxiety, and really know that peace which passeth understanding? How can we live at home the kind of consistent Christian life that we teach in our Sunday school classes and preach from our pulpits? How can we have real power in personal conversation as we seek to show men their need of a Savior? One of the most important keys to a life that knows such victory is the truth of the believer's identification with Christ in His death and resurrection.[/b] The principal and founder of the Prairie Bible Institute at Three Hills, Alberta, Canada, which now has a remarkable history of over 25 years, seems to have a gift for imparting this vital truth to others. At the request of the Editor of the Sunday School Times he wrote a series of seven editorials which were published in the Times during the first seven weeks of 1944. These articles, with added material, have now been brought together in this volume.

[b]These studies touch upon the most vital parts of the Christian's daily life. Mr. Maxwell holds closely to the Scriptures, illuminates the truth with telling illustrations, and, as far as words can do it, shows Christians how to have victory over sin, and power in God's service.It is the kind of message so sorely needed in these days of coldness in the church, lawlessness in our own land,and chaos in the world.[/b]
