Shepherding according to God

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! 😀

I hope that in my long absence from this blog, you have all been endeavoring to enjoy Christ more as your portion!

This week in our morning devotional, we covered the subject of shepherding people by cherishing and nourishing them according to the pattern of the Lord Jesus and of the apostle Paul. There is so much to say about this, but here are three top take-aways:

  1. The origin of shepherding is the Lord Himself as the unique Shepherd. In John 10:11, the Lord is the good Shepherd who lays down His soul-life for the sheep. In Luke 15:4-7, the Lord is the Shepherd who leaves the 99 to seek the one lost sheep. It is the Lord who loves fallen, sinful man, and it is the Lord who is seeking man.
  2. The Lord shepherds according to love and not based upon our condition. In John 21, the Lord drew His back-slidden disciples back to Himself not by rebuking and condemning them, but by cherishing and nourishing them so that their love for Him would be restored. On the one hand, He cherished them by first feeding them breakfast. He then nourished Peter by restoring Peter’s love with the three-fold question of “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?”
  3. The Lord desires us to participate in His shepherding today. In John 21, the Lord, as He was re-establishing Peter’s love, charged Peter to take care of His sheep. This word affected Peter so much that he wrote about it in his first epistle when speaking with the elders. Although 1 Peter 5:2-4 speaks to the elders specifically, the burden is that all the believers would have a shepherding heart for one another and for all of mankind.

The Lord today is shepherding us with a view to gaining our love. As a result of our loving Him, we become one with Him in His desire to shepherd man, and we are empowered to reach man in every kind of circumstance. This reaching of man matches God’s own heart for man, which is a heart that does not judge or condemn, but loves man to the uttermost. The issue of this kind of shepherding is a group of believers who are enjoying the love of God in a subjective way and are one with Him to shepherd man according to God.

Until next time, enjoy this new Hymn that I learned. Grace be with you all! 🙂

Lyrics:

1. Above the waste and emptiness
Broods the spirit of God
Bringing forth God’s speaking in us
Hey! Let there be light!

* And the light shines in the darkness
And the darkness did not overcome
In Him was life and the life was the light of men

2. Nights decreasing, day increasing
Every day His Word we’re speaking
Don’t be discouraged, spirit releasing!
We are the children of God

Subjective Salvation By “Receiving”!

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! 😀

So last night’s small group meeting was AMAZING!!! Recently, we have been reading a popular Christian book The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee, and I can testify that this book has been more than helpful in every way. We were reading some exposition on verses in Romans 5 which corresponded very much with my own Christian experience this past week. These two verses correspond to what I realized this week: 1. It’s not a matter of what you do, per say, but of who you are, and 2. The way to be saved from expressing our inherited nature from Adam is by constantly “receiving”.

Verses

“For just as through the disobedience of one man the many were constituted sinners, so also through the obedience of the One the many will be constituted righteous.” (v. 19)
“For if by the offense of the one death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” (v.17)

Our Heritage from Adam

With the first point, I was helped to see from the reading that everyone is born into Adam by default, meaning that everything he was constituted with, we, who come out of him, are also constituted with just by factor of being born a human being. God’s intention in the garden of Eden back in Genesis chapter 2 was that Adam would partake of the tree of life, which symbolizes taking Christ who is the embodiment of life as our source (John 15:1; 1:4; 6:57; 15:4). Instead, however, Adam partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which signified taking a source other than God Himself, Satan’s sinful nature. The result of this was not just that Adam “did” something wrong, but rather, because he took in another source, Adam “became” something. Romans 5:19 shows that because of this act of disobedience, Adam and everyone who comes out of him (that’s all of us) were “constituted” sinners, which means that our nature is wrapped up with sin. Therefore, whether we do or do not do, it does not change what we are by nature. However, God has fixed this problem, and is working out this salvation in us day by day through our dear Lord Jesus Christ! 🙂

Our Heritage in Christ

Adam’s act of disobedience caused everyone in the human race to be sinners, yet Christ’s act of obedience brought in the way for us fallen, sinful people to be constituted righteous by nature! On the cross, Christ not only dealt with all of the manifestations of our sinful nature, sins, but in resurrection He is causing all of His people to be constituted righteous! It is not a matter of what we try to be in our behavior, which is nothing but our human effort, but of what Christ is making us intrinsically by daily filling us. This brings me to the second point of my enjoyment: we are able to be saved from expressing our adamic nature by continuously “receiving” the abundance of grace, Christ enjoyed by us through our consistent contact with Him! This is not a matter of will power but of our human will making a simple choice to cooperate with the Lord’s desire to fill us! As we set our will to remain open to the Lord, He has the ground to fill us with Himself, issuing in our expressing Him (reigning in life)  instead of expressing Adam’s nature (v.17). By receiving His dispensing into us as grace His life causes us to not only express Him even in the most uncomfortable situations, but also allows Him to constantly change our nature. Just as a flowing river is able to make wood into petrified wood by replacing its wood nature with the minerals in the water, as we open to Him, Christ’s dispensing is replacing our adamic nature with His own righteous nature! How marvelous!

Summary

Without trying, we express Adam because we are constituted sinners by nature. Yet, by setting our will to remain open to receive Christ into us moment by moment, we allow Christ to re-constitute us with Himself and thereby bring forth the expression of God without human effort. It is not a matter of what you do outwardly in God’s eyes, but of who you are inwardly; and the way that we change who we are inwardly is by opening to receive Christ’s dispensing into our mind, emotion, and will, which is to enjoy Him as grace! I can’t wait to see what we read about next week!!

By the way, don’t forget to check out the latest post from TTing on our website here and to sign up for the upcoming Fall College Conference since the first deadline is tomorrow, Oct. 22!

The Sabbath Rest

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! 🙂

Justin here again with some hot, new bread for your monthly enjoyment (which seems to be about how often I update this marvelous blog). In any case, praise the Lord for another opportunity to share the riches of Christ Jesus!

This week another club member and I covered chapter 4 of Hebrews, and we were impressed with the matter of the Sabbath rest:

“So then there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.” (v. 9)

From this verse, we see that God has the desire to bring all of His people into Christ as the real Sabbath rest and that from the very beginnings of God’s work in the book of Exodus in getting the children of Israel out of Egypt, He was full of this intent and purpose. His goal was not for them just to experience the Passover Lamb, the exodus out of Egypt, the feeding of the heavenly Manna, nor even the experience of having their thirst quenched by the living water from the cleft rock. No! God’s intention from the very beginning was to bring the children of Israel through all of that SO THAT they could enter into the good land of Canaan, of which this section in Hebrews chapter 4 is concerning. Moreover, with the history of this exodus, we know that all of the children of Israel who came out of Egypt came short of the promised rest of God except Caleb and Joshua, which indicates that entering into the Sabbath rest requires some exercise on our part, but more of that to come.

Now, when you compare Hebrews 4 with First Corinthians 10:1-11, we can see that all of these things written are actually related to the experience of the believers today (1 Corinthians 10:6, 11). Thus, the significance of this section in Hebrews tells us that we must be diligent to enter into the promised rest today, which is enjoying Christ to the uttermost in our spirit (Hebrews 4:11)! The Lord Jesus did not save us (the Passover) and deliver us out of the world through baptism (Egypt and our flesh) to live a life in our soul, where we are full of murmurings and reasonings (the wilderness). Rather, His goal is that we enjoy Christ to the point in which He is manifested as the source of everything we do (the produce of the good land of Canaan); this is done by walking continually in our human spirit (Romans 8:16) to be led by the Spirit (Romans 8:14) who today is the reality of the good land of Canaan (Galatians 3:14, 8; Gen 12:3). As we walk in Him, we are saved from being strewn along in the wilderness of our soul and we experience Christ as the real Sabbath rest TODAY! May we be those who are endeavoring to enjoy this all-inclusive Christ moment by moment so that we can enter into that rest!

The Love of God

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! :D

It’s clear who’s faithful and who is not: the Lord is and I am not, which holds true since He is the “Great I Am”! This summer has been super busy for me: I had two back-to-back week-long conferences (which were amazing by the way), along with a lot of planning for this coming school year’s activities, and I MOVED…right next door 🙂 Nevertheless, I am thankful to the Lord for another opportunity to release His riches!

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone who believes into Him would not perish, but would have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

This is a common verse to both unbelievers and believers alike, and it was very common to me up until this past Monday. During this time I received some new revelation concerning the preciousness of this verse as if I had read it for the first time. Allow me to posit a question before you: does God hate sin more or death (death in the sense of its totality–if that even helps)? As a Christian growing up, I would have said without hesitation that God hates sin more because I knew that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to take away my sins. I also would have chosen sin just because I would have had no understanding of this word “death” and how it has anything to do with my Christian life. Truth be told, the matter of “death” is a pretty mysterious item in the Bible, so in order to understand how God feels about it we must look at the Lord’s own word in Numbers and Leviticus.

In the Old Testament, what did the children of Israel have to do when they sinned? They simply had to bring an animal as a sacrifice to the priest, who would then make expiation for them, and then they would be instantaneously forgiven (Leviticus 4-6). Yet, do you know what happened if they touched anything that died? You might suppose that it is the same with committing a sin, but this is actually not the case. In fact, the outcome involved the person being unclean until the evening (Leviticus 11:25, 28, 40) or even worst they would be unclean for seven days! (Numbers 19:11, 16) Thus, this implies that death, in the eyes of God, was seen as more hateful since the restoration of a person took much longer when dealing with death rather than that of the restoration that came from committing a sin.

Now, why am I even making this distinction? Consider this: if God hates death more than sin, do you think that it’s a small matter in God’s eyes to give His only begotten Son, the Beloved, to pass through death? If you search the Bible, you will find that God only refers to the Son as His beloved, which means that nothing is more precious in His eyes than Him.  We must realize then that the love of God for us is more than we could even fathom! He loved us to the extent that He would allow even the One He loves the most to go into the thing that He hates the most: death. Death, in its simplest terms, is the absence of everything that God is; and this is where He gave His Son to go because He loved us that much. I was really touched by this and I hope that whoever reads this would go before the Lord and ask Him to renew afresh their vision of the love of God.

A further word: God loves us without measure such that He would be willing to suffer death not only to save us from sin, but to also resurrect and come into us as the Spirit in order to bring life into our spirit (Romans 8:9-11, 16). God loves us to the extent that He would not only save us from our sins as an instant salvation, but even more to come into us to save us from living a life absent of His presence, which is a living death!

Until the next post, keep enjoying the love of God by this clip on YouTube; you can find the lyrics here! Grace be with you from Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley! :D

The Endeavoring Continues: Prayer

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! 😀
If you’ve read any of my post, you can probably guess what I’m about to say next: I know, I know, it’s been a LONG time since I last wrote about anything. Yet, be assured that I have been enjoying our precious Lord Jesus Christ, He is who is God manifested in the flesh (John 1:14), and who has come into us to be our very life (Colossians 3:4). Therefore, it is only fitting that I share some of it with a view to the building up of the Body of Christ by means of speaking forth my enjoyment to those who read! 🙂

Recently, I have been considering the matter of prayer quite a bit. Why is it that we pray, and why should we pray? Of course, prayer is a very big topic with many aspects, of which it is impossible for me to exhaust here, but I would like to draw attention to one aspect that I was moved by inwardly this morning.
“I desire therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and reasoning” (1 Timothy 2:8)
It’s very interesting how the apostle Paul desires that men pray in every place, meaning at all times, as is his charge in Ephesians 6:18 and First Thessalonians 5:17, after his mentioning of how God desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth in the same chapter (v.3-4). The significance of this is that our prayer, when it is governed according to the view of God’s desire, is directly related to the salvation of others. Consider this: if it were not the case, there would be no need for us to pray for this or for any other matter that we are charged to pray for in the Bible because the Lord would just do it Himself. Yet, here we see that our Savior God is desiring something, but He will not act without the adequate prayer. It is not that He is unable, for we know that our God is without limit in what He can do, yet from this, we can see that our prayers really matter in God’s eyes! Again, it is not that He is unable, but rather that He doesn’t want to move forward without His people. Therefore, we should not faint in our prayers regarding the ones whom we are praying for because the Lord is the faithful One! Let us all be encouraged that our Lord will eventually move when there are the prayers that match His heart for the salvation of others!

Interestingly enough, though I’ve written a lot already concerning this matter, this is actually not my main burden! My main burden lies in the second part of 1 Timothy 2:8 regarding the holy hands. Through some exposition, I was helped to see that hands symbolize our doings, hence, holy hands signify a holy living, a living that is pious and that belongs to God. Of course, we can all agree that such a holy life strengthens our prayer life, which also means that if our living is not holy, we will have no supporting strength to pray for what is on God’s heart specifically. I think we can all attest to the validity of such a statement through the experiences of our everyday Christian walk. We find that when we are not beholding the Lord, loving the Lord, speaking to the Lord, but are distracted with many other fountains (Jeremiah 2:13), we find that we have no strength to pray for the Lord’s desire, let alone His desire for the salvation of others. Furthermore, I was impressed to see that actually these two things go together in a marvelous way: if we are those who are contacting the Lord through prayer, we will be sustained to live such a holy life, which will be the very strength to keep us in fellowship with the One that we love! Therefore, our prayer is both the key to bringing us into the desire of God’s heart and also the very power by which we remain in fellowship with Him! How wonderful that we, the believers, can pray ourselves into the desire of our God’s heart in order to pray prayers that allow Him to gain what He desires! Let us cooperate with Him more today!

It’s evident that I can go on and on concerning this matter, probably because I haven’t been faithful in sharing bit by bit for a large part of this semester. In any case, praise be to the living Lord who today dwells in us! May He grant me the grace to be a little more diligent in this regard for the summer and may your summer be filled with the enjoyment of the unsearchable riches of Christ! (Ephesians 3:8)

The Precious Blood of Christ (College Meeting)

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! 😀

If you weren’t there tonight at the first College Meeting of Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley, you missed out! The title was on the precious blood of Christ and how applying it fixes our problems with God, with our own guilt, and with God’s enemy, Satan. As much as I would like to give a full recap, I will once again restrain myself to only a point…or two 🙂

Romans 6:23–“For the wages of sin is death…”

This verse impressed me more than usual tonight because though God loves us beyond even our imagination, He is also altogether righteous. On the one hand, He wants to have fellowship with us continuously, but He cannot ignore being righteous because it is His very person, it is who God is. Thus, what can God do for He is bounded by His own righteousness to render to us what is righteously due? What He does is He exercises supreme wisdom!!!

Through Christ’s death on the cross, God has fully paid for our sins in full. Nothing that we could ever do could pay it (unless we died, which gets us nowhere), but He, who had no sin at all, took all of our sin upon Himself and paid the price of death IN FULL. Isn’t that amazing and wonderful? Our God has fully paid the price! Therefore now, when we fall short of His expression, and we repent with a genuine heart, He must and will righteously forgive us. Even if He didn’t like us (which is not the case at all since He loves us without bound) He is bound by His righteousness to forgive us and cleanse us from all our unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). Before, He was righteous in meting out to us death, now He is righteous in meting out forgiveness! Wow, what amazing wisdom! All of this is so that our God can have and maintain fellowship with us and we with Him without any contradiction to His righteousness. Wow!

As always, I could write more, but I’ll just leave you with this to wet your appetite. Perhaps, we’ll see you at the next one, or at a bible study this upcoming week!

Grace be with you from Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley! 😀

For reading this far, I have a reward for you all–enjoy this hymn in four-part harmony! Here’s the lyrics:

Why should I worry, doubt and fear?

Has God not caused His Son to bear

My sins upon the tree?

The debt that Christ for me has paid,

Would God another mind have made

To claim again from me?

Redemption full the Lord has made,

And all my debts has fully paid,

From law to set me free.

I fear not for the wrath of God,

For I’ve been sprinkled with His blood,

It wholly covers me.

For me forgiveness He has gained,

And full acquittal was obtained,

All debts of sin are paid;

God would not have His claim on two,

First on His Son, my Surety true,

And then upon me laid.

So now I have full peace and rest,

My Savior Christ hath done the best

And set me wholly free;

By His all-efficacious blood

I ne’er could be condemned by God,

For He has died for me!

Awesome Conference!!!

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! 😀

This past Friday through Sunday, I went down to Anaheim for an AWESOME CHRISTIAN CONFERENCE! As usual, I enjoyed so much that if I wrote it all down, none of you would even read it 😛 so I will attempt (and attempt is the key word) to crystallize my enjoyments.

The need to not only know about Christ, but the necessity of experiencing this Christ in our daily lives!

Ephesians 3:17-19 “That Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith, that you, being rooted and grounded in love, May be full of strength to apprehend with all the saints what the breadth and length and height and depth are, And to know the knowledge-surpassing love of Christ, that you may be filled unto all the fullness of God

The speakers of the messages repeated again and again that just because we may know a lot about Christ, we still must humble ourselves before the Lord and confess that we are short of the experience of this Christ. The apostle Paul was such a servant of the Lord who constantly spoke concerning the knowledge and the experience of the Christ. He not only knew about Christ, he experienced this unsearchably rich Christ (Ephesians 3:8) as his moment by moment supply, even in the most unfavorable of conditions (Philippians 1:19)! Yet, in my experience, though I may know a lot about Christ (having been a Christian for a number of years) I am very short of the experience of this all-inclusive Christ. One of the speakers asked this question: “How big is your Christ?” If we are to be genuine and honest, the Christ that we experience is still very small for we have not attained to enjoying Him continuously throughout our day. We have not yet come to know Him in a full way either individually or corporately with other believers. So, with this being the fact, what should we do?

The Lord is faithful to shine light on us not only to expose us, but all the more so that we would come to Him and let Him do in us what we could never do in ourselves. Our response to any light from the Lord should always be prayer: “Lord, don’t allow me to be satisfied with my current knowledge and experience of You. Lord, I want to know You even more than Paul did! Bring us all on so that we may come to apprehend You with all the believers, and draw us to seek after You more than ever before!”

Here’s one of the four banners/themes of the conference for your enjoyment!

The church is produced from the unsearchable riches of Christ,

which are what Christ is to us, such as light, life, righteousness, and holiness,

what He has for us, and what He has accomplished, attained, and obtained for us.

What a Christ! Anyways, grace and peace be with you from Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley! 😀

P.S. This Thursday is the first College Meeting. Get the info at christiansoncampus.info!

Long Overdue Enjoyment!!!

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus! 😀

As usual, it’s been an eternity since I last wrote something: this semester of Berkeley has been super BUSY!!! Since I don’t know where to begin, I’ll just begin from tonight’s Bible Study, which was on Ephesians 2:1-10.

I was particularly touched about our humble beginnings as ones dead in offenses and sins, and then God’s great love and mercy towards us in Christ Jesus.

“And you, though dead in your offenses and sins…But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us” (v.1,3)

I enjoyed the words “but God”! Hallelujah for such a declaration by the apostle Paul! Due to God’s great love and mercy, He put all of the believers in Christ such that we could be identified with Him in His death, resurrection (v. 5), and ascension to be seated in the heavenlies (v.6). Thus, it is in Christ that we have been created to be God’s masterpiece. Before, our position was below the earth, but now, in Christ, our position is heavenly! We have been identified with the resurrected and ascended Christ!

There’s so much more to be said concerning this free gift of grace given to all the believers and how we have been made God’s masterpiece, the Body of Christ, in order to express Christ in all our actions, but time does not allow! In any case, may the Lord have mercy on me and on this blog so that the riches of Christ may be ministered to all the ones who stop by.

Grace be with you from Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley! 😀

P.S. Here’s a question for whoever would like to comment or respond: according to the context of Ephesians chapter 1 and 2, what do you think are the ‘good works which God prepared beforehand’ for the believers to walk in, mentioned in verse 10 of chapter 2?

I Love Being in Berkeley!

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus!

I just got back from an awesome conference concerning how to be a normal Christian in this day and age: it was miraculously normal! I enjoyed particularly how as Christians, we must be ones who live a proper and normal human life that is also altogether divine. In Exodus, we have the boards that hold up the Tabernacle, which was the dwelling place of God on the earth at that time. These boards were composed of two things so take a minute and guess what you think those two materials are……Okay! If you guessed silver and ivory you’re absolutely WRONG, but it’s okay because with Christ we always have a second chance 🙂 The two materials, in fact, are acacia wood and gold. It was explained to me that the gold represents God’s own uncreated, divine nature and acacia wood signifies the uplifted humanity of our dear Lord Jesus Christ! Thus, what you have as the support in God’s dwelling place on earth is humanity, but the expression (because the gold overlays the wood) is the expression of all that God is in His divinity. The point is, as Christians, we need to enjoy the Lord at every moment so that we can live normal human lives on the earth who work, go to school, and take care of our finances. Yet, at the same time, we should be different because the source, expression, and the goal of our human lives should be one that declares all that God is. Such a living will be a duplication of Christ’s living on the earth and will give God the way to build up His dwelling place in man! Hallelujah that there can be such an expression of divinity mingled, blended, with humanity on the earth today!!

There was sooooooo much more that helped me a lot, like how we should give the Lord our topmost everything. Practically, this means the topmost in finances (of course), time (morning revival every morning before our day starts), and energy (this was a new one for me and it refers to giving the Lord the time when we are most energetic in the day). I would say more, but I want you to have more time to enjoy Christ as your portion. So instead, I will leave you with pictures of various things for your enjoyment!

As always, Grace be with you from Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley 😀

The Warrior Bride

Hello Fellow Crazy Lovers of Jesus!

I had a fresh enjoyment of the Lord regarding the church as both His bride and His army who comes with Him to deal with Antichrist at the close of the church age. In Ephesians 5, we see that the in order to give the believers a clear view concerning how a husband should love his wife, the apostle Paul speaks of Christ’s love for the  His bride, the church!

‘Husbands, love your wives even as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her…That He might present the church to Himself glorious, not having spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that she would be holy and without blemish (v. 25, 27)

This indicates that our love towards the Lord should not be religious, but it should be personal and affectionate! It is a marvelous thing to both realize that He is the Bridegroom (John 3:29) and to then call the Lord your bridegroom since He has been calling the believers  His wife/bride since the Old Testament (Isiah 54:5). In any case, I appreciated seeing that the Lord’s love for us surpasses the relationship of Creator and creation, and even Father and sons, to bride and Bridegroom. In fact, in the last book of the Bible, Revelation, we see this same idea:

“Let us rejoice and exult, and let us give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.  And it was given to her that she should be clothed in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the saints.” (19: 7-8)

As a believer, you may have already seen this aspect of the church, but have you also seen her in the light of being His army? Consider this verse in Revelation 19 in light of Revelation 17:14:

“And the armies which are in heaven followed Him on white horses, dressed in fine linen, white and clean.” (19:14)

This army comprises the very believers as the overcomers (Revelation 2 and 3) who have just married the Lamb and are now spending their “honeymoon” with the Bridegroom to deal with Antichrist on the earth! How amazing that lovers have now become the fighters! Thus, today, if we want to be those who fight for the Lord, we must first be those who love Him to the uttermost and give Him the first place in our hearts, in all matters!

Grace be with you from Christians on Campus at UC Berkeley 😀
