Those who wish to be established in present truth should master Paul’s epistles, especially Ephesians. After they have learned the mysteries or secrets in his writings and scaled the heights to which he alone can guide them, they never will be tempted to descend to the level which is found in our Lord’s earthly ministry and in its continuation by the twelve, as recorded in the book of Acts and in the epistles from their pens.

Christ and the Christian Life

January 22, 2009

The Son of God lived the Christian life:

by an indwelling Father
by the Father imparting His life to His Son
by the Son living by means of the Father’s life
by the Son listening to His Father
by the Son responding to what He heard the Father say
by the Father revealing Himself to His Son
by the Son beholding His Father
by the Father loving the Son
by the Son loving the Father back with the very love which the Father poured out on the Son.

And, finally:

Take all of those elements together and you have the one secret … of the how of the Christian life. What you see in all of this is the Son fellowshipping with the Father.
