MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
______...."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 8 of 10]
The Love Walk
*____If we could learn to walk in love and make it the business of our lives, we would solve many problems of human relationship which
we thought were impossible. Jesus lived in love. He lived in the realm of love. He spoke love. His words were love-filled. His acts and deeds grew out of love. He could not help healing the sick. Love drove Him.
He could not help feeding the multitudes. Love compelled Him. If we could have our spirits developed in love like that, then we could live like the Master; we could maintain a real beautiful fellowship with the Father, with the Word, and with one
____John 14:16-17, Jesus promised He would send a comforter, the Holy Spirit. "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may be with you forever, even
the Spirit of truth: whom the world cannot receive; for it beholdeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he abideth with you, and shall he in you.”
____This "Comforter" whom
He calls the "Spirit of truth.," or "reality," is to guide us into all truth or reality. He is to take the things of Jesus and the Father and unveil them to us. That is what our hearts are craving. He is not going to wide us into Sense Knowledge, but into
Revelation Knowledge. He is going to take those wonderful truths of the Pauline Revelation and make them a reality to us. In order to do this, it will be necessary that we have quiet hours, a little while each day set apart for meditation.
____Joshua 1:8 "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate thereon day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy
way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. That was for Israel under the Law, under the First Covenant. Under the New Covenant, we are to let the Word of Christ dwell in us richly; we are to abide in the Word and the Word is to abide in us. This
will lead us into the prayer life, into prayer conquests.
