Experiencing Christ

Man Completing God

Rom. 9:23 In order that He might make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He had before prepared unto glory,  (24)  Even us…
2 Cor. 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God and not out of us Eph. 1:22 …the church,  (23)  Which is His Body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.


Prayer is not just man contacting God; it is the mutual contact between man and God. This matter of the contact between God and man is a very great subject in the Bible. We have often said that the purpose of man’s living is to be
God’s vessel. In the universe God is man’s content, and man is God’s container
. Without man, God has no place to put Himself. He becomes a homeless God. I do not understand why this is so, but I know that it is a fact. In the universe God’s greatest need is man. God as an entity in Himself is complete, but as far as His operation in the universe is concerned, He still needs man to fulfill that operation.
By this you can understand the last sentence of Ephesians 1, which says that the church is the Body of Christ, the fullness of Christ. The term fullness is very hard to translate. It not only denotes the fullness of Christ, but also implies the completeness of Christ. Hence, the church is, on the one hand, the fullness of Christ, and on the other hand, the completeness of Christ. In other words, without the church it seems that Christ is not at all complete.
We all must be very careful in understanding this word, for it can stir up violent arguments in theology. I do not mean that God is incomplete and that He needs man to make Him complete. What I mean is that God in Himself is perfectly complete, but without man He is not complete in the universe according to His plan.  Brethren this matter is too glorious.


Thought Of the Day:

Prayer is not just man contacting God; it is the mutual contact between man and God. the purpose of man’s living is to be God’s vessel. In the universe God is man’s content, and man is God’s container. Without man, God has no place to put Himself. He becomes a homeless God. God in Himself is perfectly complete, but without man He is not complete in the universe according to His plan. 

Prayer Confession:

Dear Father, I now Know how much i must consecrate my self to become a vessel you abide in to fulfill you divine purpose in the universe. i remain in this mutual contact with you in my life experience Amen
