Weekly Pursuit – Week 5 of December

Verses:

Eph. 3:16-17a “That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit into the inner man, that Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith.”

 

Excerpts:

The genuine church life is the issue of Christ personally making His home in our heart to occupy every corner of our inner being. The content of the church is the Christ whom we take as our person, the Christ who is wrought into our being. In order for Christ’s word in Matthew 16:18 concerning the building up of the church to be fulfilled, the church must enter into a state where many saints allow Christ to make His home in their heart, possessing, occupying, and saturating their entire inner being. The more Christ occupies our inner being, the more we will be able to be built up with others in the Body. The reality of the Body life is such an inner experience of the indwelling Christ. The Body of Christ is the consummation of our enjoyment of the unsearchable riches of Christ and the consummation of the experience of the unlimited Christ making His home in our entire inward being. The New Jerusalem is the ultimate issue of Christ making His home in our heart.

 

David wanted to build God a house of cedar, but God wanted to build Himself in Christ into David. What God would build into David would be both God’s house and David’s house. [The Lord said,] “If anyone loves Me, My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make an abode with him.”(John 14:23) This abode will be not only for the Triune God but also for us. What God builds up in us is both God’s habitation and our habitation.
