Weekly Pursuit – Week 4 of November

Nov 26, 2019 by

Verses:

2 Cor. 4:16 “Therefore we do not lose heart; but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.”

 

Excerpts:

We may be good saints in the church who have been kept and preserved by the Lord, but have we been renewed with the divine element? It would be tragic if we would pass through many sufferings and still remain the same. In order to consummate His renewing work in us and with us, God becomes our life and nature within. In addition to this, God as the sovereign Lord controls the entire universe in order to renew us. God uses the environment in order to work His life and nature into us.

 

God’s intention is altogether to make us new. This is not an overnight matter. It takes a long time in our life, and it requires us to contact God, to receive God, and to get God added into us all the day. It requires us to pray, confessing our sins and rejecting ourselves to take the cross of Christ. To take the cross of Christ is a killing, and this killing is death. This death brings in resurrection, and in this resurrection the divine life in us will carry out its renewing capacity. Then we will be changed metabolically.

 

Then we will enjoy not only the renewing capacity but also the renewing result, which is a metabolic change in our behavior, in our character, in our disposition, and even in our habit. When we experience God in Christ daily, we will see that God’s intention is to renew us bit by bit, especially to renew our habit. (Being Renewed Day by Day)
