Romans 8:6 For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.
In the past week from 27 May to 2 June, we read together in CBC 7 The Knowledge of Life Chapter 5 – 7, and learned about The Sense of Life, The Fellowship of Life, The Sense of the Spirit and Knowing the Spirit.
“…concerning our condition in life, whether we are fleshly minded or spiritually minded, whether we are living in the flesh or living in the spirit, it is proved and made known to us through the sense of life. It is through this kind of proving that the sense of life gives us guidance from within. Only if we follow the guidance of this kind of proving can we live in life. Therefore, if we desire to go on in life, we must pay attention to the proving and leading which this sense of life gives us from within.”
“The fellowship of life and the sense of life are mutually related. …When the fellowship of life is not interrupted, the sense of life causes us to feel that we have the supply of life. Therefore, whether we are living in the fellowship of life and whether we have the supply of life depends entirely on what the sense of life indicates. The more we live in the fellowship of life, the keener is our sense of life, and the more we are supplied with life.”
“…If we want to know the spirit directly, it is somewhat difficult, but it is comparatively easy to know the spirit itself by such senses of the spirit. …If we follow the naturalness of the law of the Spirit of life, take care of the sense of life and peace, heed the warning given to us by the sense of death, and live in these senses, then we are living in the spirit. These senses are from the spirit; therefore, they can cause us to touch the spirit and thereby know the spirit.”
May we all be brought into such a fellowship of life and live in the spirit. May the Lord gain each one of us, to be one who live and act according to the sense of life within.
Lastly, we shared about the upcoming Truth Seminar 8, on the topic: The Shining Golden Lampstand, 23 June (Sat), 2.30 – 5.00pm @ Mandarin Orchard Hotel, Room 606, Orchard Wing. Feel free to join us if you are available! Registration link is: http://tinyurl.com/ts8tbr .
