Verses:

Rom. 8:4 “That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit.”

 

Excerpts:

We need to learn to exercise our spirit in our daily life. Even in our home, in dealing with our family, we must learn how to exercise our spirit, to do and speak things not by our mind, emotions, desires, or likes but by the inner feeling, the consciousness of the spirit. We must learn how to exercise according to the deepest feeling in our spirit. Then we will be used to exercising our spirit, so whenever we come to the meeting, we will be ready. The church life is a life in the human spirit with the indwelling Holy Spirit. This is one aspect of the principle of the New Testament worship.

 

The other aspect of the New Testament worship is to worship in truthfulness, that is, in reality, in Christ. This depends on our daily labor. If we do not labor on Christ and live by Christ, we will have nothing of Christ in our hand. Our spirit may be positive [and] active, but we may be poor and empty-handed. If this is so, we are worshipping in spirit but not in reality. Therefore, the church life depends on our daily exercise of the spirit and also on our daily walk in Christ, living by Christ, and having many experiences of Christ. Then we will be rich in Christ and with Christ. When we come to the meeting, we will know how to exercise our spirit, and we will have much surplus of Christ. (Serving in the Meetings and in the Gospel, ch. 1)
