Weekly Pursuit – Week 4 of November

Nov 24, 2014 by

Verse:

Eph. 4:18 “Being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance which is in them, because of the hardness of their heart.”

Eph. 4:20-21 “But you did not so learn Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him as the reality is in Jesus.”

Excerpts:

In Ephesians 4:17-32 there are three significant verses that show the divine dispensing of the Divine Trinity. From these three verses we see that the divine dispensing of the Divine Trinity is the base for our daily living.

The life of God, the truth in Jesus, and the sealing of the Holy Spirit are the three sources of the divine dispensing… Life is of the Father. This life must become the truth in our daily living, which truth is the reality in Jesus. This truth as the practicality of the life of the Father becomes the sealing ink, which is the Holy Spirit. While the sealing ink seals, it saturates, permeates, and soaks us with the divine life in the practicality of Jesus’ daily life, making us a “xerox copy” of Jesus’ life, which is the practicality of the Father’s life.

We have the life of the Father in us. We also have a model and an example, which is Jesus’ life in His humanity. This life in His humanity is just the practicality of the divine life seen in the four Gospels. Furthermore, we have the sealing ink, which is constituted with the divine life and with the human living of Jesus. This sealing is wet all the time; it seals, saturates, and permeates us, enabling us to have a daily life that is suitable for the building up of the Body of Christ. (The Economy and Dispensing of God, chap. 10)
