Oh, sacred union with the Perfect Mind

Oh, sacred union with the Perfect Mind,
Transcendent bliss which Thou alone canst give;
How blest are they this Peerless One who find,
And, dead to earth, have learned in Thee to live.
Thus in Thine arms of love, O Christ, I live,
Lost, and forever lost to all but Thee.
My happy soul, since it hath learned to die,
Hath found new life in Thine Infinity.
Go, then, and learn this lesson of the Cross,
And tread the way that saints and prophets trod:
Who, counting life and self and all things loss,
Have found in inward death the life of God.

Whenever we sense that we have sinned, we need to ask the Lord for forgiveness. Once we confess our sins, God will forgive us of our sins, and the precious blood of Christ will cleanse us from them. We also should realize that the Holy Spirit and Christ's precious blood are related; where the cleansing of the precious blood is, there the anointing of the Holy Spirit is. When we confess our sins and the precious blood cleanses us, the Holy Spirit immediately ministers to us and supplies us within. Hymn #476 in our Chinese hymnal says, "Live in the light of life, / Sweet fellowship maintain; / Behold His gracious face, / Each day more glory gain, / The Spirit's move obey, I Rejoice and praise and pray; / Live in the light of life," Every day as we live in the light of life in order to have fellowship with the Lord, His blood cleanses us from our sins so that we may experience the Holy Spirit's inspiring, leading, and supplying us inwardly, which causes us to be saved and to overcome. This kind of living is truly wonderful.
