|“You must be born again.”
John 3:7What did the Lord mean when He spoke the words above? To be born again with the life of Christ is the greatest blessing any human being can ever receive, but it is also a great mystery.
Born Again: Our New Life in Christ, by Titus Chu, makes an excellent Bible study tool for exploring the topic of our new birth, because it simply goes through the scriptures to cover, point-by-point, a number of the crucial and wonderful things that happen to us the moment we believe in Jesus Christ.

This conference covered the matter of joy in the Christian life, especially as it is seen in the book of Philippians. As Christians, we should be the most joyful people. This does not mean that we are merely happy, but that we live in a state of joyfulness.
Where does our joy come from? The real joy comes from living a life in which we are one with God, with His servants, and with all the saints for the carrying out of God’s purpose.
What a life we have been called to live! No one has such a blessed life as we do; no one has a life that is so meaningful as ours. Realizing that we have been called to such a high existence, and working together with God to fulfill His desire, should surely fill us with joy. (more…)
The 2010 Labor Day weekend conference was on the book of Philippians, on the topic of “Christ, Christ, Christ!” Everything in our daily life, in our pursuing, and in our church life must be focused on Christ, Christ, Christ! We seek or desire nothing but the Lord Himself; He is our real blessing and our unique prize.
There were five messages, and selected excerpts from these messages are now available on this website. You can listen to them online, or by downloading them in mp3 format for offline listening, such as on your iPod.

And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
— Matthew 2:11
This conference focused on several New Testament portions that speak, either directly or in figure, of the treasures we have in Christ. Matthew 2:11 tells us that “gold, frankincense, and myrrh” were offered to Christ at His birth; “gold” signifies God Himself, “frankincense” signifies the resurrection of Christ, and “myrrh” signifies the death of Christ. We see different aspects of these treasures in Colossians 2, Matthew 13, and Second Corinthians 4. (more…)
In January of 2009 a number of saints from around the Great Lakes area gathered in Ohio for a time of fellowship with brother Titus on the very basic matter of loving the Lord Jesus. This time was especially intended for the young people, and the fellowship was very practical; our brother shared that the burden for this time was simply focused on helping us learn how to contact the Lord and be in His presence, especially in our personal lives.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
— Genesis 1:26-27 (more…)
|The book of Ruth is one of the sweetest in the entire Bible. This revised edition of Ruth: Growth unto Maturity, by Titus Chu, shows that the story of Ruth the Moabitess and her marriage to Boaz is a picture of how we, who are sinners, can have a turn from our fallen situation to enter into complete union and rest with Christ.
At the beginning and end of the divine revelation God shows us a river. He further reveals throughout the Scriptures that He reaches and works with humanity as a divine flow. What does the Bible tell us about this stream of God? As those who desire to serve and know Him in His economy today, where and how can we experience this flowing God? (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…)
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…)
The Bible tells us that the golden lampstand in the Tabernacle was made of “beaten work” (Exo. 25:1). 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…)
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. It is not right to try to have only the divine expression without a solid experience of the Lord’s humanity. (more…)
This life is truly marvelous and unlimited, because it is the life of God Himself. Knowing this life and laying hold of it will make us restful, because we will realize that God is the all-sufficient One who cares for us in every way. (more…)
We should seek to know Christ in the way He desires to be known: as the present Christ in His move and economy. Therefore, in this series of messages our brother fellowships with the saints about this matter of coming to the presence of the present Christ by means of calling, singing, Bible reading, prayer, and gathering with others.

Every believer must pay attention to the growth in life. Your growth in life will eventually lead you to a maturity in life, which comes from the proper understanding of what life is and how life operates.
This article discusses three items that are included in the new life we have received: the sense of the divine life, the nature of the divine life, and theÃ‚Â operation of the divine life. (more…)
Then when our person is right we must take care of our way of coming to the Bible. First, we need to learn the facts, and based on knowing the facts we can go on to receiving inspiration, learning the truth, and, ultimately, having the light of the word. (more…)
In this brief audio excerpt brother Titus considers this question. The answer he provides is very practical for those who love the Lord Jesus. In brief, he shares that we should not seek the Lord’s leading directly, but rather, should seek to be in the Lord’s presence so that He may give us His leading in the proper time. (more…)
Our brother gives a very practical answer, saying that it is not our responsibility to seek the Lord’s leading directly. Rather, our responsibility is to be restful before the Lord and to seek His presence so that He may give us His leading at the proper time. (more…)
These excerpts deal with the basic provisions the Lord has made for us to live a life in fellowship with Him: the Spirit, the Blood, and the Word. As Christians, we need to know how to avail ourselves of these wonderful provisions so that we may remain in fellowship with our dear Lord.
