Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of January

Verse:

Phil. 3:3 “For we are the circumcision, the ones who serve by the Spirit of God and boast in Christ Jesus and have no confidence in the flesh.”

Excerpts:

The natural strength and ability are useful if they are dealt with by the cross. After being dealt with by the cross, they are in resurrection. Some brothers speak in their natural eloquence, but other brothers speak with an eloquence dealt with by the cross. This is the eloquence in resurrection….

In resurrection something divine has been wrought into our strength and ability…. The cross always works the divine element into the person it deals with, bringing God into him…. In the natural eloquence, there is no God. But the “dealt with” eloquence in resurrection is full of God. After being dealt with, our strength and ability become useful in resurrection for our service to the Lord.

Our natural strength and ability must be dealt with and put on the cross. Then they will be in resurrection and full of the divine element. Then whatever we do in the church service will be a ministry of the divine element to others. (Basic Lessons on Service, lesson 20)
