The Divine Trinity—A Pattern for Our Cooperation
In Matthew 12:28 the Lord said, “If I [the Son], by the Spirit of God [the Triune God including the Father], cast out the demons, then the kingdom of God [the Triune God] has come upon you.”…The way He cast out demons showed…that He was humble…[and] not individualistic.
He was not doing something by Himself and for Himself. He was doing something by the Spirit of God and for the kingdom of God. He never did anything by Himself or for Himself. Is this not beautiful? This shows us the excellency in the Divine Trinity.
This is surely a good pattern for our coordination. The Lord has produced a Body constituted with many members, so all the members should learn of Him…We should not do anything by ourselves or for ourselves. I may do something according to the will of God, but what I do should not be by myself but by some others. Furthermore, what I do should not be for myself but for the interest, the right, of God on the earth. This is a beauty…a real excellency, a real divine attribute, and an excellent virtue that we need to copy. (CWWL, 1988, vol. 1, “Living in and with the Divine Trinity,” pp. 307-308 ch. 5)
Living Christ by Speaking to the Lord Constantly
When we have problems in our daily life, we do not have to seek advice from others, because we have a spirit in us and the Lord as the Spirit dwelling in our spirit is very near to us.
We can ask Him about everything, without any need to use the telephone or the fax machine, for He can talk with us right within us…The Lord’s Word says, “In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” (Phil. 4:6)…I always pray, “O Lord, now I am going to take a walk. Support me, sustain me, and strengthen me.” This is to drink the Lord. In this way I have no anxiety. When anxiety comes, you should say, “O Lord, this anxiety is Yours, not mine; I give it to You because You bear it for me.” Thus, you receive the Lord’s element into you, and metabolism will work constantly in you. Consequently, what is expressed through you outwardly is Christ. This is to live Christ. Those who do not know this secret consider that to live Christ is a difficult thing. Actually, you just need to practice speaking with the Lord constantly; then spontaneously, you will live Christ. (CWWL, 1994-1997, vol. 3, “The Organic Aspect of God’s Salvation,” ch. 4, p. 419)
