Weekly Pursuit – Week 1 of May

Verses:

2 Cor. 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God; for I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.”

 

Excerpts:

Paul’s word in 2 Corinthians 11:2 is very touching. It touches our heart in a deep way and stirs up our love for the Lord Jesus. Very often the life-study messages touch our hearts in the same way. After reading a few pages of a message, the tender feeling within you for the Lord Jesus is stirred up, and you realize afresh how dear and precious He is. The genuine ministry stirs up our love for the Lord Jesus as our Bridegroom.

 

We need to see from verse 2 that we have been betrothed to one husband in order to be presented as a pure virgin to Christ. Therefore, we should say, “Our dear Lord Jesus is our unique Husband, and I am part of His virgin. I don’t care for doctrine or theology. I care only for the ministry that ministers Christ to me. He is the pleasant and dear One whom I love.”

 

The Lord’s recovery is not a matter of theology, tradition, religion, or practices. Rather, it is a matter of a living Person, the Lord Jesus Christ as our Bridegroom. He has attracted us, and we have been presented as a pure virgin to Him. Now we should care only for Him, love Him, and allow no one to replace Him in our hearts. Furthermore, our love for Him should be pure, our mind should be single, and our entire being should be focused on Him. This will preserve, sanctify, saturate, and transform us. Praise the Lord, this is His recovery! (Life-study of 2 Corinthians, msg. 52)
