Weekly Pursuit – Week 4 of September

Sep 25, 2018 by

Verses:

Acts 26:18 “To open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to light and from the authority of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.”

 

Excerpts:

God created man with the purpose that man would be a vessel to contain Him for His expression. Hence, after man was created, God gave Himself to man to be man’s possession. However, due to [man’s] fall, man lost God as his possession and fell into the world, [selling] himself.

 

In the year of jubilee there are two main blessings: the returning of every man to his lost possession and the liberation from slavery. We must receive the Lord Jesus as the real jubilee in us. The Chinese word for jubilee means “everything being to one’s satisfaction.” Our human life is not always satisfying, and our environment is not always gratifying. Everything can be satisfying to us only after we have gained the all-inclusive Christ as our enjoyment. In Philippians 4 Paul indicates that he knew Christ and experienced Him to such an extent that everything was to his satisfaction. He says, “I have learned, in whatever circumstances I am, to be content. I know also how to be abased, and I know how to abound; in everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to hunger, both to abound and to lack. I am able to do all things in Him who empowers me.” It is not outward persons, matters, or things but Christ within who enables us to be calm and free of worries as we face all kinds of situations. (The Jubilee)
