Weekly Pursuit – Week 5 of January

Verses:

Rom. 8:6 “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.”

 

Excerpts:

Now we have the tree of life in our spirit and the tree of knowledge in our flesh. We have learned from Romans 8 that all we need to do is turn our being to the living One who indwells our spirit and stay one with Him. When we turn to Him and set our mind on Him, we have life, peace, light, comfort, strength, and all we need. Our thirst is quenched and our hunger is satisfied.

 

In order to set our being on the mingled spirit, we need to pray. How easily we are distracted from the divine Spirit in our spirit! Our mind is so quickly drawn to other things. Therefore, we need to pray, not mainly to ask the Lord to do things for us, but to keep our mind set on the spirit. Be assured, the Lord will take care of you and do everything for you. Hence, in prayer you need not be occupied with your needs. Instead, pray to keep in touch with the living One in your spirit. The more you keep in contact with Him, the more you will enjoy Him. We should simply praise the Lord that He is our love, our patience, and our everything. If we praise Him in this way, declaring how good the Lord is, spontaneously love and patience will flow out of us. The more we set our mind on the living One in our spirit, the more He lives Himself out of us. (Life-study of Romans, msg. 39)
