Gospel of Mathew – A Tour of Our All-Inclusive Christ

05-Tour-of-All-Inclusive-Christ

At Christians on Campus, we believe that knowing the Lord Jesus Christ is the best thing we could ever do. Knowing Him is not just having met Him once, believing in Him and realizing that He is now in us. Knowing Him is getting-to-know-him, more and more, little by little, and deeper and deeper. This is why the the Bible is so rich as it describes our Savior.

The Gospel of Matthew introduces us to the King, but what kind of king is He? We all know this one is the Christ, but what does the Christ mean? And, what does it mean that He is the Son of the living God?

Here are some scripture verses that motivate us to get to know Christ more and more.

Hosea 6:1-3 Come and let us return to Jehovah; / For He has torn us, but He will heal us, / And He has stricken us, but He will bind us up. 2 He will enliven us after two days; / On the third day He will raise us up, / And we will live in His presence. 3 Therefore let us know, let us pursue knowing Jehovah: / His going forth is as sure as the dawn, / And He will come to us as the rain, / As the late rain which waters the earth.

John 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

Verses for Today

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man / Who does not walk / In the counsel of the wicked, / Nor stand on the path of sinners, / Nor sit in the seat of mockers;

Psalm 1:2 Rather his delight is in the law of Jehovah, / And in His law he meditates by day and by night.

Psalm 1:3 And he will be like a tree / Transplanted beside streams of water, / Which yields its fruit in its season, / And whose foliage does not wither; / And everything he does prospers.

John 10:10b I have come that they may have life and may have it abundantly.

The Bible surely tells us that God created us and that He is taking care of all our needs. It even tells us that God sent His Son to die for us that we might be saved from our sins. We should always thank Him for all these blessings. We have so much to be thankful for, but let us not just acknowledge this. Let us practice, “Thank you Lord!”. 

By thanking the Lord thus and even praising Him and loving Him, we come to see that the Bible has an even deeper level, revealing to us God’s very heart and plan. God’s plan is altogether wrapped up with you and me; His plan is that we receive His life and live by Him. He wants us not only to have a human life and to be forgiven, but to have His divine life. 1 Corinthians 15:45 tells us that in His resurrection Christ became a life-giving Spirit. As the Spirit, He gives us Himself as God’s life! The Bible’s primary purpose is actually that we might have God’s life.

God’s intention in His economy [plan] is to dispense Christ into us, and for this dispensing there must be some means. The Bible is the means that God uses to dispense Christ into us (The Holy Word for Morning Revival, Topics for New Believers, Week 3, day 1).

Psalm 1 indicates that the law, when taken in a proper way as God’s word, can minister life to us. Those who delight in the law of the Lord and who muse on it day and night are like trees planted by the rivers of water (vv. 2-3)… If we contact the law of God by musing upon God’s word in worship and prayer, in our experience the law will become a river of water, and we shall be trees planted by the water. This is the indication in Psalm 1 that the law can supply us and water us. (Life Study of Exodus, Msg 56, Section 4)

As we come to His word day by day, and practice contacting Him with our spirit, we shall be those who receive more and more of God’s divine life; we shall be like the trees planted by the rivers of water.

An Exceedingly Good Land – Its Unsearchable Riches – Food

Wednesday, February 21, 2018, 6pm.

Food

As we continued to look at the Good Land, which represents Christ, we saw it’s goodness represented by fig trees, pomegranates, the olive tree, and milk and honey.  We found…

  • sweetness
  • satisfaction
  • beauty
  • and the abundance of life

Ultimately again, to experience Christ in such a rich way and to flow His life out to others, we must be those who get filled with the Spirit, as revealed in the following verse…

And I answered a second time and said to him, What are the two olive branches that are by the side of the two golden spouts, which empty the gold from themselves? And he spoke to me, saying, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, sir. And he said, These are the two sons of oil, who stand by the Lord of the whole earth. (Zech. 4:12-14)
