Weekly Pursuit – Week 1 of December

Col. 3:10 “And have put on the new man, which is being renewed unto full knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.”



In the church as the new man, Christ is everything. This implies that He is every brother and every sister. This also implies that every brother and sister must be constituted of Christ. In the new man there cannot be Jewish members and Gentile members; there can only be Christ-members. If we would be constituted of Christ, Christ must be added into us more and more. Wemust be permeated with Christ, saturated with Christ, and have Christ organically wrought into our being. Eventually, we shall be replaced by Christ. Then, in reality, He will be all and in all. He will be
every member, every part, of the new man.


Christ as all and in all in the new man should not be mere doctrine. Rather, the rich, substantial Christ must actually be wrought into us organically until He replaces our natural being with Himself. This can take place only as we remain rooted in Him and absorb His riches into us. These riches will then become the substance, the element, which will saturate us organically. Then Christ will become us, and we shall become
constituted of Christ. This is not only to grow with Christ, but it is also to be built up in Christ. There is no room for any race, nationality, culture, or social status. In the one new man there is room only for Christ. (Life-study of Colossians, msg. 60)
