Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of July

Verses:

Phil. 3:9 “And be found in Him, not having my own righteousness which is out of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is out of God and based on faith.”

 

Excerpts:

The righteousness that is based on faith is conditioned by faith. There is no need for us to strive, struggle, or endeavor. We simply need to gain Christ, live in Him, and even rest in Him. Christ is my faith. I have been crucified with Christ, Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live I live in the faith of Christ. My living today is conditioned by Christ’s faith. It is based on the faith of Christ, not on a faith that I myself can produce. By faith I repudiate myself and take Christ as my life. Because I have no trust in my flesh, I set it aside, take Christ by faith, and live by Him. Spontaneously, God is lived out of me, manifested through me, and expressed from within me. Such a living is a proper and upright living.

 

We should be able to say, “Angels, look at the Christians in the Lord’s recovery. They are in a condition of having God lived out of them. They don’t care for behavior or conduct. They care only for taking Christ as their life. They always take Christ as life and rest in Him. Whenever you see them, you find them in Christ in a condition of having God lived out of them.” This is the proper church life with a living testimony. This is what the Lord desires today. (The Experience of Christ, ch. 13)
