Weekly Pursuit – Week 3 of January

Verses:

1 John 5:18 “He who has been begotten of God keeps himself, and the evil one does not touch him.”

 

Excerpts:

The only way to overcome Satan is to stay in the high tower of our regenerated spirit. When we stay in the spirit, we are built up in the Body in a practical way. But if we stay in our minds, we shall be divided. This is true not only in the church life, but also in married life. If I remain in my mind and my wife remains in her mind, it will be impossible for us to be one. I have learned to have a healthy fear of staying in my mind. Whenever I am in the spirit, there is no problem with oneness. Both in the church life and in our family life we must be afraid of our minds that are so easily set on the flesh, afraid of the division caused by our dissenting thoughts and opinions. When we find ourselves thinking critically of others, we need to turn immediately to the Lord in our spirit and pray. We all must learn the lesson of turning to the spirit and staying there.

 

In the spirit we experience not only Christ as life, but also the Body. In the spirit Christ is both our life personally and the life of the Body. Therefore, in the spirit with the divine life and with the Body of Christ, Satan is overcome and even crushed under our feet. He is defeated not by individuals, but by the Body.

 

Never neglect your regenerated spirit where you may hide from Satan. When we are in such a place, Satan can do nothing to us. ( Life-study of Romans, msg. 49)
