Verses:

Deut. 16:16 “Three times a year all your males shall appear before Jehovah your God in the place which He will choose….And they shall not appear before Jehovah empty-handed.”

 

Excerpts:

The life we need to enjoy the good land is a life first of all of laboring on Christ, seeking to enjoy Him and experience Him in every situation. The people of Israel after they occupied the good land and all their enemies were subdued simply labored on the land. They tilled the ground, sowed the seed, watered the plants, nurtured the vines, and pruned the trees. It is a picture of how we must work diligently on Christ that we may enjoy His all-inclusive riches.

 

We have to labor on Christ day by day so that we produce Him in mass production. We need more than just a little of Christ to satisfy our own needs. We must produce enough of Him so that there will be a surplus remaining for others. We are meeting together to have an exhibition of Christ, not just the Christ whom God gave us but the Christ we have produced, the Christ upon whom we have labored and whom we have experienced. All our meetings should be an exhibition, a fair, in which all sorts of the produce of Christ are displayed.

 

The life in the land is a life full of the enjoyment of Christ, both personally and collectively with the Lord’s people. May we be diligent to labor on Him, to have our hands filled with Him, and then come to the place that He has appointed, to the very ground of unity, to enjoy this rich and glorious Christ with God’s children and with God Himself. (The All-inclusive Christ, ch. 15)
