 MEDITATIONS 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

 

 

 

"I AM THE WAY"

 

[part 5 of 8]

 

 

*____Here is the secret of prayer.

 

____We have utterly failed to grasp the significance of the heart hunger of the Father. He longs for our companionship.

 

____John 14:23 gives us an illustration: "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my word: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him."

 

____Does your heart grasp it?

 

____Jesus said: "The Father and I will come and make our home with you."

 

____He is no longer in the Holy of Holies.

 

____The sin problem has been settled.

 

____Man has received Eternal Life, has become His very child.

 

____Now His great heart of love says, "I want to come and make My home with you."

 

____Can you see what lies back of this?

 

____There has been a restored righteousness.

 

____Man has become Righteous.

 

____He can stand in the Father's Presence without the sense of guilt, condemnation or inferiority; and on the basis of this righteousness man has Fellowship.

 

____This is the object, the heart-reason for the entire Redemptive Program.

 

____What would Relationship mean without Fellowship?

 

____God could make man His son, but if that son didn't have fellowship with the Father, then there is no joy for the heart of either.

 

____Fellowship really means "drinking out of the same cup."

 

____It was like our old fashioned communion table where the pastor or elders passed a cup and each one of us took a sip of the wine.

 

____That was a type of communion.

 

____Now the Father has called us into communion with His Son.

 

____We drink together.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
