Words from Norman Grubb

Union
by Norman P. Grubb

Therefore, regeneration is a first revelation of an indwelling Person. Of course it is! In other words, you are not regenerated until the Spirit opens your heart to know Him within, so that you know within you an indwelling Christ—the first touch of it. An inner sense is opened in which He is come to your heart. That’s the real proof of regeneration, or one of the proofs. It’s proof to your own heart, anyhow. So you see straight away you get the first touch. That is the Salvation letter.

Now it passes on from that to what, I am sure, is a great favorite of hundreds of us here. To me it’s the outstanding verse in the whole Bible to the saints of God, because it’s the perfect analysis of a balanced life—Galatians 2:20. It’s a marvelous bit of spiritual psychology as well as penetrating insight by the Holy Ghost into the heart of the matter. Galatians 2:20. I am sure it’s written on the heart of many of us here. “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me.”

You see the oscillation? I told you the problem is to find the correct balance between the two personalities in the one. We are one person, yet we’re two. That’s the problem. So Paul oscillates. He says, “I’m crucified with Christ—no, no, I’m here—no, no, I’m not here, Christ lives in me—no, no, I live—no, no, I live by the faith of the Son of God.” He swings to and fro. That’s all you can do. That’s the best human language can do. It’s the best finite mind can do, if I may put it that way, endeavoring to put in human terms the “un-putable.”
