A Life of No Regrets

1
What caused Mary to give her all?
What moved Peter to answer Your call?
Many lives were wasted for Your testimony;
Oh Lord, why do these people care so much for Thee?
  See the vision of Christ and the church;
Count the cost; reckon all things as loss;
Pay the price. The prize to gain Christ,
Burn the bridges; leave the world behind;
On God’s economy your heart be set
To live a life of no regrets.
2
Others have considerations,
When serving You, Lord, is the highest profession.
No longer good for the world with all its glory,
We’re for Christ and the church, ’tis now our testimony.
  See the vision of Christ and the church;
Count the cost; reckon all things as loss;
Pay the price. The prize to gain Christ,
Burn the bridges; leave the world behind;
On God’s economy your heart be set
To live a life...
  We’ve seen the vision of Christ and the church.
Reckoned the cost; all things are but loss.
Will pay the price — give all of our lives;
We’re burning bridges, left the world behind.
On God’s economy our hearts are set
We’re living a life...
On God’s economy our hearts are set,
We’ll live a life of no regrets.

If we pay the price for the heavenly vision, we will “burn the bridges” behind us and will have no way to go backward... Even if we wanted to go back, the people would not accept us.

However, suppose that one day an offer is presented to you, an opportunity to have a better position or a better future.... Would you consider this offer? For you to consider such an offer would mean that you have not burned all the bridges. It would mean that you have left yourself a way to go back.... We should not be ashamed of burning our bridges—we should praise the Lord for it.

To take the way of the Lord’s recovery is not cheap. This way is expensive; it requires a costly consecration... Are you ready for such a consecration? Are you ready to come into the upper room to be clear concerning the heavenly vision?

We are here not for a movement but for the Lord’s recovery. How can the recovery be realized? The recovery can be realized, carried out, only by the experience of the consecration in the upper room. This is not an ordinary consecration; it is a special consecration, a specific consecration, an extraordinary consecration. This consecration is a turning point.

QWhat are we expecting today? . We must be here for the Lord’s recovery, which is the issue of an upper-room consecration.

I was enjoying it today morning than I remembered the chapter where Petter is given the revelation of Christ, and than Jesus told him about the church (metthew 16:18), that hymn makes me to be given for the cause of Christ and the church, seems is the very thing that Jesus came to reveal to us in the new testament. may the Lord have mercy on me.

Even the title itself infers absolute sanctificationLord, make use of my remaining years for You where I don't have to look back after Sodom and Gomorrah like that of Lot's wife who became a pillar of salt.
