How do we live by the Life of the Lord Jesus?
By inviting His Presence continually until we are thinking along with Him; speaking along with Him; and acting along with Him.
Isn’t this impossible?
It might have been impossible at one time, but not today. The Lord promised that there would come a day when the world would not see Him but we would see Him.
Where sins abounds, as it does today, grace does much more abound. The Lord Jesus has kept the best wine until now!
On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. (John 14:20)
There do come changes in the plan of redemption; but only those who are given to prayer are aware when they do come and can profit from them.
It makes us think of Anna and Simeon in the Temple, doesn’t it?
Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against.” (Luke 2:34)
The leaders of the Jews were well acquainted with the Torah. Here was the Torah made flesh in front of them, and they could not perceive it. Why not? Because they were men of religion but not of the Spirit of God.
