 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

 

 

 

DEVELOPING YOUR SPIRIT LIFE

 

[part 7 of 10]

 

We Develop Our Spirit By Walking In Love

 

*____The senses have always been a traitor to the spirit. They are ever seeking their own. They are hungry, and vet they are never satisfied. They are always seeking and never finding that for which they seek. Solomon said a wise thing in Ecclesiastes when he said, "The eyes are never satisfied nor the ears filled with hearing." Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life." He was God's love way. He is the only way of life, and the only way to the Father. He is love's way. He lived it in His earth walk, and He imparted to us His nature so that we might live this love life.

 

____In Eph. 5:1 we are told that as children of love we are to walk the love life way and bear the fruits of love. Now we can understand how we are to develop our spirits; it is done by walking in love, and meditating in love. We have come to know that the recreated human spirit is the fountain out of which love and faith, peace and joy, and all of the other beautiful products that belong to the love life, spring. 

 

 

Faith is not a product of the reasoning faculties, it is a product of the spirit. Now we can understand this fact, that to develop this recreated spirit, it is necessary that we practice love and walk by faith. We must feed on the "Bread of Heaven." "For man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."

 

____Jesus put it in a new way, "Except one eat my body and drink my blood." The body was the Word made flesh. We' must feed upon the living Word. Blood is life, so we are to drink deeply of the life that He wrought. He said, "I am come that ye might have life and have it abundantly." It is that abundance of life that makes us overflow with love.

 

____I have never desired anything more than I have desired to know how to develop the recreated human spirit. I believe I have some suggestions that will teach us how to use wisdom, how to appropriate it in Christ, and how to make it our own, teach us how to walk in love so that our conduct will be Jesus-like.____

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.
