Rom. 6:5 “For if we have grown together with Him in the likeness of His death, indeed we will also be in the likeness of His resurrection.




Day by day and moment by moment you put your self to death. You simply recognize the glorious fact of what the Lord has accomplished on His cross in putting you to death, and you apply this to yourself by not giving any ground to your self. Only when we live and walk in the spirit—the regenerated human spirit mingled with the Lord as the Spirit—are we following the Lord. Today the Lord is in our spirit, and He is for the church. In order to follow the Lord, we need to walk and live in the spirit and for the church. This is the way to realize the genuine church life. The way is to deny our natural life, to bear the cross, and to realize the fact that our natural life has been put to death and that now we live and walk not by the natural life but by the spiritual life. That is, we live and walk in the spirit and for the church.


It is important for us to see that the genuine church life is the life of Christ. It is Christ realized, experienced, enjoyed, and expressed by us. Therefore, the way to realize the church life is to deny our self and acknowledge that the natural life is just clay, not stone; thus, it is good only for the enemy Satan’s building, the city of Babel, not for God’s building, the New Jerusalem. ( CWWL, 1963, vol. 2, pp. 145-146)
