Verses:

Eph. 4:21 “if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him as the reality is in Jesus.”

 

Excerpts:

Christ is not only life to us but also an example. We learn from Him according to His example, not by our natural life but by Him as our life. When we believed in the Lord Jesus and were saved, God put us into Christ as the mold. This mold is the life of Jesus recorded in the four Gospels, a life absolutely according to reality, truth. Truth is the shining of light, the expression of light. Since God is light , truth is the expression of God. Every aspect of the life of Jesus recorded in the Gospels is an expression of God. In everything He said and did, He expressed God. This life of Jesus according to reality is the pattern in which God has placed us. In this pattern we have learned Christ as the reality is in Jesus. This means that we have learned Christ according to the reality, the truth, shown in the Gospels, that is, according to the life of the Lord Jesus, which was wholly according to God’s reality, God’s truth. This life is the shining of light. The shining of the light is truth, and truth is the expression of God. Therefore, in the life of Jesus there is truth, reality. The essence of the pattern set up by the Lord Jesus is reality. This means that the essence of the life of Jesus is reality. We have learned Christ as the reality is in Jesus. (Life-study of Ephesians, msg. 46)
