Ministry Excerpts

  • Life Is Not Our Human Life: All human life is subject to death and is destined to die. Real life is eternal. Real life is God flowing into us and being imparted into our being. Only God is eternal, so only God Himself is the real life.
  • How to Take Christ as Life: In the Scriptures we have the terms “tree of life,” “bread of life,” “water of life,” “Spirit of life,” and “word of life.” These terms help us understand that Christ is our life. The tree of life indicates the source of life; the bread of life, that this life is edible; the water of life, that it is drinkable; the Spirit of life, that life is just the Spirit of God; and the word of life, where life is to be found.
  • Our Need to Experience the Living Christ Who Dwells In Us: The most important lesson that we need to learn is to experience Christ as the wonderful Spirit working, regulating, and moving within us. When we become simple to go along with the living One who dwells in us, we will have the real Christian life and the real church life.
