Weekly Pursuit – Week 1 of July

Jul 6, 2023 by



John 4:24 “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.”




To forget about all else and pay attention to the sense in our spirit is to exercise our spirit. It is impossible for us to avoid many things that happen to us in our environment. However, we should not be occupied by these things. We must learn the lesson of forgetting about our environment and our circumstances. When we come to a meeting, we must exercise our spirit by taking care of the sense in our spirit rather than the sense in our soul. If we do this, we may discover that we have the deep sense to praise the Lord and forget about everything else. When we exercise our spirit, we forget about our environment, our family, our successes, and our failures and are brought into the heavenlies. In the spirit we may declare, “Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Christ is Victor!” Following our praise, those who are troubled by their spouses, encouraged by good news, and facing inward turmoil may be encouraged to declare, “Amen! Praise the Lord!” When all the saints exercise their spirit in this way, the meeting is brought into the spirit, and the saints worship God in spirit.


This is the way that we should take in the meetings. For the most part, however, this is not our practice. This is why we are in such great need of learning this lesson. Worshipping God is a matter that must be in spirit and in the exercise of our spirit. We need to forget our environment with our feelings, thoughts, and concepts and simply take care of the deepest sense in our being—the sense in our spirit. ( CWWL, 1965, vol. 2, pp. 38-40)
