ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of
God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN
you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
*____It is in the regenerated human spirit that
the new life dwells, THERE that the Holy Spirit works, THERE that we fellowship with the Father and His Word, THERE that we know the Will of God, THERE that we receive the revelation of the Holy Spirit, THERE that we are trained, THERE that we mature, THERE
that we resist the attacks of the Enemy, THERE that we receive [appropriate] the authority to overcome Satan and his forces, and THERE that we secure the power [Grace] for true Kingdom-service.
...."Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God and a great King above all gods".... Psalm 95:2-3 NASB
____.... put on the new man [give the recreated spirit a place of prominence], which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him".... Colossians 3:10 NASB
...."May He [the Father] grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling
your innermost being and personality]. May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell [settle down, abide, make His permanent home] in your hearts!
May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience
for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled
and flooded with God Himself]!".... Ephesians 3:16-19 The Amplified Translation
