Weekly Pursuit – Week 3 of November

Nov 19, 2019 by

Verses:

Col. 3:1 If therefore you were raised together with Christ, seek the things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

 

Excerpts:

If we seek the things above and have one living with Christ, we shall be wholly occupied with the enterprise of our Master. In heaven he is interceding for the churches, supplying the saints, and administrating God’s government. This will be our concern. If we take Christ as life and seek the things which are above in such a way, the lustful members will be put to death, the evil elements in the fallen soul will be put away, and the old man will be put off. Furthermore, we shall automatically put on the new man.

 

We all need to care for the Lord’s interests. While He is praying in heaven, we respond in prayer on earth. Thus, we experience the transmission between Christ and us, a transmission that will make us happy and full of joy. Christ works in the heavens, and we work on earth. In this way, we not only enjoy Christ as the reality of our necessities, but we also take Him as our life and have one living with Him.

 

Our living with Christ is not aimless; it has a definite purpose. This purpose is to be one with Christ in His intercession for the churches, in His ministry of the heavenly life supply to the saints, and in His administration of God’s government. The result of living together with the Lord in such a way is the new man. The new man is the spontaneous issue of our taking Christ as our life and living Him. (Life-study of Colossians, msg. 60)
