Weekly Pursuit – Week 2 of December

Verses:

Col. 3:10 “And have put on the new man, which is being renewed unto full knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.”

 

Excerpts:

Brothers who live together are not always happy with each other. In 1935 I was placed with some other co-workers who stayed together with me. After only two or three hours I became unhappy with one of them. Although I would have reacted in a wrong way the Spirit within constrained me. Even when I was unable to be pleasant, the Spirit within me was able. We are all one only because Christ as the life-giving Spirit is in our spirit. We love Him and we live by Him. When we live by Him, we are happy with all the brothers. It is in the spirit that we are one, and it is in the spirit that we are in the new man.

 

If you go to Italy, France, Japan, China, Korea, or the Philippines, you will see nothing but Christ. Christ is with every believer, and Christ is with every local church. This will be the ultimate church life, a universal new man living out Christ. This will conclude this age, usher in the kingdom, and bring Christ back. Eventually, this new man will become the loving bride to Christ. All the saints in many countries throughout the world will speak the same thing, the unique Christ. He is our life, and He is our person. He is the life-giving Spirit within our spirit, and all the time, in everything, we are turning to our spirit and growing into this unique Christ. (The One New Man, ch. 3)
