Weekly Pursuit – Week 3 of September

Sep 22, 2021 by

Verses:

2 Cor. 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God; for I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.”

 

Excerpts:

In chapter 3 Naomi proposed and even pushed to gain a home for Ruth. Naomi was clear that Ruth needed to be married to Boaz…. There was the need for Naomi, as the person in the middle, to push Ruth and Boaz to get married. My burden today is like Naomi’s. I am seeking a resting place for you, and the only way for you to have rest is to take Christ as your Husband. Thus, I am here as a person in the middle to push you to marry Christ….You need to do more than to glean in His field—you need to take Him as your Husband. My burden, therefore, is to push all of us to marry Christ. I am pushing us to marry Christ so that we can build up a home and enjoy Him in this home, which is the church.

 

Nothing is more intimate than marriage. Taking Christ as our Husband is a most intimate matter. If we marry Christ, taking Him as our Husband, our life will be changed. We will realize that we must have a wife’s fidelity, and we will learn how to enjoy Christ as our life, walking and behaving in oneness with Him. Then we will become those who gain Christ and enjoy Christ, loving Him, staying at home with Him, and living with Him at home, in the church. If we do this, we will truly know the church life in the Lord’s recovery. (Life-study of Ruth, msg.4)
