Weekly Pursuit – Week 4 of May

Verses:

Rom. 15:6 ”That with one accord you may with one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Excerpts:

The blessing and grace of God can only come upon a situation of one accord. This situation is the practice of oneness. The practice of oneness touches our mind, our love, and our speaking. Many times our mind is like an unreined wild horse, free from any restraint. Our love is not regulated. Our words are light and loose. All of these damage the oneness of the believers and are factors for losing the Lord’s blessing.

 

Hence, we have to be on the alert. If we would first consider and think a little before we speak and would ask if it is Christ or not, there would be no problem. If we love the saints, we should ask ourselves if our love has different classes, degrees, or depths, and we should be adjusted by the Lord accordingly. The same is true with our speaking. We should speak only if our speaking is Christ; otherwise, we should not speak. We all want the church here to receive grace and blessing. But do not forget Psalm 133. The commanded blessing of the Lord, which is life forever, is upon the brethren dwelling together in oneness. The oneness of the believers prayed for by the Lord is a perfected oneness by all of us being in the Father’s name and life, in His word of reality, and in His divinely expressed glory. Only by this is there the blessing of God. Of course, we should labor and work for the Lord, but if our situation is not in oneness, I am afraid that our result will not be abundant. Therefore, in order for us to receive God’s blessing, we must practice the oneness, and the way to practice the oneness is by the one accord. (The Oneness and the One Accord according to the Lord’s Aspiration and the Body Life and Service according to His Pleasure, msg. 1)
