To live a life in fellowship with the Lord requires us to exercise before Him. We must be clear on such matters as the divine Spirit and our human spirit, and we must know the provisions the Lord has made for us to come to Him. In addition, there are certain exercises we need to have, such as calling on the Lord’s name and praying. In this way we can live a life in fellowship with the Lord. (more…)
According to 2 Corinthians 1:20-21, for God to be glorified requires God Himself, the saints, and Christ. If we only have the saints, or we only have Christ, it is not enough. One of the best ways to practically have the saints in our lives is to gather together with them in theÃ‚Â home meetings.
The structure of the Tabernacle in the Old Testament was formed with boards made from acacia wood and overlaid with gold. This is a picture showing us that for a healthy church life we need to have both an uplifted humanity, signified by the wood, and the expression of the divine nature, signified by the gold.

We also know from the Bible, as well as from experience, that the lamps needed to be trimmed from time to time in order to shine properly (Exo. 30:7-8). Moreover, we can see three stages of our growth as Christians pictured in the lampstand’s cups, bulbs, and blossoms. (more…)

For our living in the local church life to be healthy we must have some basic items. First, we must be on the local ground. Second, we must have the fellowship of the Body of Christ. Third, we must have a healthy teaching. We must also have a proper humanity, a proper living, and we must have a way for the gifts in the Body of Christ to come forth among us. Finally, we must walk in love, even as Christ also loved us. (more…)
God’s calling is always an individual matter. However, if the church life becomes a movement, this will cause ones to come in among us who have never received such a calling. Such a “mixed multitude” can affect the entire church life in a very negative way and even cause the church life to fail.
When we believed in the Lord Jesus and received the divine life, we also received that life’s many capabilities, attributes, and virtues. For us to serve the Lord properly these must be developed in us. In this message brother Titus considers a number of the virtues we need to treasure as we serve the Lord in the church life.
