 Youth Time Alone with God

Jesus’ statement to His disciples in John 15:3 (“You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you”) was a bold thing to say, for He was declaring something on faith rather than on fact. Yes, they had been cleansed from many things, but it was not true just then that they were “clean.” Were they not still quarreling over first places, proposing to call down fire from heaven, and asking other disciples to stop work because they did not belong to their party? This was hardly being “clean.”

       And yet, as far as Jesus was concerned, the power they needed for perfect cleanness was all available. It seemed to Jesus so actual that He declared it already done. This statement was the expression of His consciousness that this was all provided for in His word. He believed they would connect up with that word and take the cleanness.

       It took about sixty days before it was actually accomplished at Pentecost. So this statement was made with about sixty “days of grace” attached to it. But at the first moment they were prepared to pay the price and take the cleansing, it was theirs. In other words, Jesus gave them a check they could cash at any time. All they had to do was to endorse it.

       A minister living in the backwoods without many conveniences was sent a check that seemed too good to be true. He went to the city, nervously presented it to the bank, and was relieved when the teller simply told him to endorse it. On the back he wrote, “I endorse this with all my heart!”

       That is what the disciples did—at Pentecost they endorsed with all their hearts the check that gave them cleanness.

O Christ. Thank You for Your adequacy and Your faith in us. We will not disappoint that faith, for we will take that adequacy. Amen.
