take time to behold Christ, to fellowship with Him and absorb Him


Ever since the Lord has appeared to us the first time, we have been captivated by this lovely One. Now we just love to take some time – even “steal” some time from our daily activities/routine/things to do – to fellowship with Him, pray, enjoy Him, read the Word, and just spend time with the Lord Jesus. This is the way we are being built in our faith, this is how He shines on us to expose us and also supply us, and this is how we learn to know Him – who He is, what He is to us, what He desires, what His mind is, what His intentions and feelings are – all that pertains to Him…..

This taking time to behold Him – by opening our being to Him and just inviting Him in to speak to us – is a vital practice in our Christian life. Many times lots of other things and activities/persons/situations get our attention, and we tend to forget about the Lord. But Christ is in us and He so is desirous to have us spend some more time with Him. Through the things that happen in our life, He lovingly brings us back to Himself, the fountain of living waters, even the tree of life, of which we are branchesabiding in the vine! Let the world rush on – we want to spend much time in secret with Jesus alone. In joy or in sorrow, we still follow our Lord – and, looking to Jesus, we still trust in His Word!

As we read His Word, the Holy Scriptures, by being open to Him within and contacting Him, we absorb Him – what He is / has / has done / has attained / has obtained – into our being. We received Him initially, but we daily need to be nourished and take Him in, so that the divine life in us would grow. This is what happens in our fellowship with the Lord – both personally and collectively in the meetings of the church – as we take time to behold Him, the Lord appears to us, and we are being infused with His element. This rich infusion of His presence causes faith to rise in us, and our organic union with the Lord is deepened. This is so wonderful! Lord, draw us to spend more time with You every day!
