“Keep this in mind from an old man, there is no finality to the Christian life this side of eternity. We pray that some of us may go to our own funeral tonight and die to self and end all the failure and weakness… If I was to ask you tonight you were saved? Do you say, ‘Yes, I am saved’. When? ‘Oh so and so preached, I got baptized and…’ Are you saved? What are you saved from, hell? Are you saved from bitterness? Are you saved from lust? Are you saved from cheating? Are you saved from lying? Are you saved from bad manners? Are you saved from rebellion against your parents? Come on, what are you saved from?… There’s no room for Him in the inn. He got a bit older, there was no room in His family, His family turned on Him. He went to the temple, no room in the temple, the temple turned on Him. And when He died there was no room to bury Him, He died outside of the city. Well why in God’s name do you expect to be accepted everywhere? How is it that the world couldn’t get on with the holiest Man that ever lived and can get on with you and me? Are we compromised? Have we no spiritual stature? Have we no righteousness that reflects on their corruption? As dear Dr. Tozer used to say, “Len, you knew one thing about a man that was carrying a cross out of a city, you knew he wasn’t coming back.” We just come from an alter and we go back the next week and we’re as fascinated, we haven’t spent a half an hour with Jesus but will stay two stinking hours in a movie house. And Paul says that’s what the world is to me it’s a system of corruption and rottenness and vileness. It’s antichrist from the word go. Is the world crucified to you tonight or does it fascinate you?
