2 Cor. 4:10 “Always bearing about in the body the putting to death of Jesus that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”




Deuteronomy says that these waters are flowing forth from the valleys and the mountains. If all the land is a plain, there will be no flow of water. In 2 Corinthians 6:8-10 Paul mentions many contrasting things, many mountains and valleys: “Through glory and dishonor, through evil report and good report; as deceivers and yet true; as unknown and yet well known; as dying and yet behold we live; as being disciplined and yet not being put to death; as made sorrowful yet always rejoicing; as poor yet enriching many; as having nothing and yet possessing all things.” “Glory” is a mountain; “dishonor” is a valley. “As poor” is another valley; “yet enriching many” is not only a mountain but a great mountain. In these verses there are at least nine pairs, nine valleys and nine mountains. These are the places from which the water may flow.


All the valleys are the experiences of the cross, and all the mountains are the experiences of the Lord’s resurrection. Whenever there is a valley, there is a mountain. The living waters flow forth from all these experiences. The first place that you contact the flowing water is in the valleys. Then if you trace that stream up to its origin, you find that it springs from the mountains. The stream is in the valley, but the spring is in the mountains. If you would have something flowing out from within you to water others, you must be in the valleys. (CWWL, 1961-1962, vol. 4, “The All-inclusive Christ,” pp. 227-228)
