christ our life (4)
"And God comes to all of us who are asking, “My God, I have made an absolute surrender to you, and you know that although it was done in weakness and trembling, it was done in honesty and uprightness; but, my God, what does it mean? How am I to live that life?”The Father points to the beloved Son and says, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him, follow Him, live like Him, let Christ be the law of your life.”Let us yield our hearts to God in prayer that He might search and reveal to us whether the life of Christ has actually been the law of our life. I am not speaking about attainment, but whether we have actually said, “How blessed it would be! This is what I desire and wait upon God for! It almost sounds too high or too presumptuous.”But what did Christ mean when He said, “As I have loved you, even so love one another; as I kept the commandments of my Father, so, if you keep His commandments, you will abide in my love”? What does the Holy Spirit mean when He says, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus …who made himself of no reputation …but humbled himself, and became obedient unto death”? The mind of Christ must be my mind, my disposition, and my life."
