Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of December

Verses:

John 15:7 “If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.”

 

Excerpts:

Whenever you come to the Word, you should experience the light searching and exposing. If you do not, you must pray, “Lord, have mercy upon me. Take away the dullness, the numbness, the blindness, and the veils, that I may sense Your light.”

 

The word first comes as light, then as nourishment and strengthening. Eventually, it does a killing work. Once the light exposes and the nourishment strengthens, you will say, “Lord, I am willing. Take this away. Cut it off.” In receiving the word, you will find that it does much killing within you. It will kill your natural concepts about your husband or wife, about the brothers and sisters, about the church and the elders. It will kill your carnal desires and fleshly lusts. If you build up the habit of getting into the Word, you will have this experience daily.

 

Eventually, you will find this Christ so close and so precious to you. You will begin to breathe Him. By taking the Word in this way, you will live Him, grow Him, and produce Him. You will have the soil of your heart cultivated by the Father to grow Christ. He will cultivate the soil of your conscience, which is the gate. He will cultivate also the soil of your emotion, your will, and your mind. This will make a way for the vine to spread into every part of your soul.

 

Do not correct or adjust yourself. Just come back to the Word and to abiding in the vine by abiding in His words. (Life Messages, ch. 6)
