#30 Bearing the Ultimate Responsibility in God’s Ultimate Move (1)
Brother Reggie Favors begins our new series on bearing the ultimate responsibility in God’s ultimate move.
I. We need to bear the ultimate responsibility related to the world’s ultimate situation, God’s ultimate move, and God’s ultimate recovery:
1. We must realize the great responsibility we have regarding preaching the gospel, teaching the divine truths, and meeting according to the way ordained by God; however, we should not be satisfied with these three things, for they cannot fulfill God’s desire—Matt. 24:14; 28:19.
2. God’s desire, His good pleasure, is for us to live Christ and to have Christ as the reality, the real contents, of the church life, making every local church a golden lampstand—Eph. 1:5, 9; Phil. 1:21a; 2:13; Rev. 1:11-12:
a. Then the Body life will reach the reality of Romans 12, and this will be the spontaneous preparation of the bride for the Lord’s coming back.
3. Our ultimate responsibility is to be a living witness to Christ in our daily life and to meet in our locality in such a way that we may be the Body, the new man, the lampstand, and the bride—Eph. 4:16, 24; Rev. 1:12; 19:7.
