Walking in Christ, the Good Land

Col 2: 6 As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, Gal 5: 16 But I say, Walk by the Spirit and you shall by no means fulfill the lust of the flesh. Rom 8: 4 That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit.

I deeply feel that most of the Lord's children are still in Egypt [where they are slaves in the world] . They have experienced the Lord only as the Passover lamb. Others have come out of Egypt and enjoy Christ as their daily manna as they wander in the wilderness. But very few believers experience Christ as the realm, the sphere, in which they walk. May the Lord open our eyes to see that Christ is our good land and that we must daily walk in Him! In Galatians 3:14 Paul says, "That the blessing of Abraham might come to the nations in Jesus Christ, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." Here Paul refers to the blessing of Abraham and the promise of the Spirit. This blessing refers to the good land, and the fulfillment of this blessing for us today is Christ as the all- inclusive Spirit. Therefore, according to Paul's concept, to walk in Christ as the good land is to walk in the all-inclusive Spirit. In Colossians 2:6 Paul tells us to walk in Christ, but in Galatians 5:16 He charges us to walk by the Spirit. Furthermore, in Romans 8:4 he speaks of walking according to spirit. These verses indicate that the good land for us today is the all-inclusive Spirit who indwells our spirit. This all- inclusive Spirit is the all-inclusive Christ as the processed Triune God. After being processed [becoming man, then going through crucifixion, resurrection and ascension] , the Triune God is the all-inclusive Christ as the all-inclusive Spirit for us to experience. Today this all-inclusive Spirit indwells our spirit to be our good land. (c) 2007 Living Stream Ministry.
