Weekly Pursuit – Week 1 of January

Verses:

2 Pet. 1:4 “Through which He has granted to us precious and exceedingly great promises that through these you might become partakers of the divine nature.”

 

Excerpts:

The divine nature is what God is. God is Spirit, God is love, and God is light. To be a partaker of the divine nature is to be one partaking of God as Spirit, as love, and as light.

 

[When we] fellowship with the Lord, we realize and enjoy the Lord as the Spirit, and simultaneously we enjoy the nature of God’s essence, which is love. Love then saturates us and even becomes us. Before this time we may have been disgusted with many things. After this kind of fellowship, however, everything is lovable. This love has not only filled us but saturated us. The reason we Christians can love persons whom others cannot love is because we enjoy God as love. We enjoy the divine nature of this loving God. Only those who partake of the divine nature love people genuinely. They are not taught to love others, but they have become love toward others.

 

If we would spend an adequate amount of time in the morning with the Lord, we would be full of light inwardly. [Then] whatever we do and whatever we say would be full of light. This is the issue of our enjoying of the divine nature. If we would all spend time to fellowship with the Lord, we would have the sensation that we are enjoying the Lord as the Spirit, and we would become a person of love. Love would saturate us. Furthermore, whatever we would say would be light, and whatever we would do would be transparent as crystal. This is an evidence or proof that we are partaking of the divine nature. (God’s New Testament Economy, ch. 30)
