How to Live Christ by Calling on the Name of the Lord

“All day long, no matter where we are or what we are doing, we need to call on the Lord. Whatever we are doing, we should call on the Lord Jesus. Call on the Lord’s name in every situation, even when you are about to lose your temper. By calling on the Lord, you will live Christ.”

Offering Everything to the Lord Jesus

Matthew 26:6-8—“Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him, having an alabaster flask of ointment of great value, and she poured it on His head as He reclined at table. But when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, Why this waste?” Note 1 on waste says, “The disciples considered Mary’s love offering to the Lord a waste. Throughout the past...

How to Pray Unceasingly

“Paul’s command to pray without ceasing implies that unceasing prayer is like breathing. But how can our prayer become our spiritual breathing? How can we turn prayer into breathing? The way to do this is to call on the name of the Lord. We need to call on the Lord Jesus continually. This is the way to breathe, to pray without ceasing.”

A Wonderful Change

“When the life of God enters into us, it first enters into our spirit, quickens our dead spirit, and makes it lively, fresh, strong, vigorous, and able to touch God, sense God and have sweet fellowship with God. Then it spreads gradually from our spirit into every part of our soul and makes our thoughts, affections, and decisions gradually become like God’s having the savor of God; even in our...

Knowing God as Our Father

“God wants not only to be God to man, but even more to be Father to man. He wants not only that man take Him as God, but even more that man have His life. He wants to be Father to man, thereby being God to man in His life. Only when man has His life and becomes His son can man really know that He is God and really allow Him to be God.”

Evil Men, Good Men, and God-men

“There are all together three classes of men in the universe: God-men, good men, and evil men. God’s deliverance is not to make us evil men or good men, but life men.”

The Lord Becoming Our Enjoyment Through Calling on His Name

“The more we call on the Lord, the more He becomes our enjoyment. Through calling on Him He also becomes our peace, rest, comfort, and solution to all kinds of situations. This is not a mere doctrine or superficial teaching; this is a truth for our experience.”

Man’s Reformation Versus God’s Deliverance

“Man’s reformation is by way of exerting human strength, inflicting harsh treatment on our body, and subduing the passions, thus bringing forth the good in man. God’s deliverance is by way of putting His Spirit and His life into our spirit, thus quickening our spirit; then a renewing work begins from our spirit, renewing firstly the various parts of our spirit, then the different parts of our...

Eternal Life and Eternal Security

John 10:28—“And I give to them eternal life, and they shall by no means perish forever, and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.” Note 1 on eternal life and My hand says: “Eternal life (see note 151 in ch. 3) is for the believers’ living. The Father’s hand, by which He chooses in His love according to His purpose (17:23; 6:38-39), and the Son’s hand, by which He saves by His grace for the...

Consecrating Ourselves to Enjoy Christ

“You must consecrate yourself sincerely to the Lord for the simple purpose of enjoying and experiencing Him—nothing more. From the moment you awake in the morning you need to say, ‘Lord, here I am. I give myself to enjoy Thee. Grant me through the entire day, from this moment on, to experience and apply Thee in every situation. I am not asking for tomorrow. I am asking for grace to enjoy Thee...
