The mysteries of God are all of the highest practical value, in either strengthening for service, comforting under trial, or enlarging the soul's communion.

Every true believer in Christ has two natures. The first is what he or she possesses as a child of Adam - it is a nature shared by all. The second is that divine life which we now possess as children of God. These are sometimes referred to as our old and new natures - one comes with natural birth, the other with new birth. This subject is not an academic one. If we do not understand that we, as believers, possess a new nature, and that our old nature is dead in God's sight, it will result in a frustrating struggle. Throughout the history of Christianity many a saint has sought to subdue the flesh and eradicate sin, not understanding that it is altogether done with in God's sight, and that he or she can live in the good of a new nature and the power of the Holy Spirit.

“And the angel answered…I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay” (Matthew 28:5-6).

The resurrection of the Lord Jesus is one of the most wonderful events in the history of this world. Prior to His resurrection, others had been raised from the dead in both the Old and the New Testaments. But no one had ever raised Himself from the dead, as the Lord Jesus did. No one had ever come back to life and left the grave as He did. As God, He could say of His life, “I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again” (John 10:18). When the Lord Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead (John 11), he came out of the grave “bound hand and foot with graveclothes” (John 11:44), but the Lord Jesus came right out of His graveclothes.

Also, He did not need anyone to remove the stone, so that He could get out of the tomb. No, as God He would simply go through that stone. The angel rolled away the stone so that the women and the disciples could see inside the tomb, and even go inside. But the angel did not need to roll away the stone so that the Lord Jesus could come out. He had already risen!

Growing in Grace
“Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? … I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed” (Luke 16:3).
In this chapter we have a story about a steward who had charge of his master’s goods. Evidently he had been misusing them, and in modern language, he was going to be fired. But rather than look at the actual story here, let us look at what the steward said. He recognized that he was not able to do manual work (digging), and he was ashamed to live from the charity of others (begging), so he made some other arrangements. We do not need to be concerned about those other arrangements for now, but only to notice that he knew what kind of work he could do, and what he could not do.
It is a good thing to recognize our natural abilities when we are young, for we each have skills of different kinds. Some are well equipped to work with their hands, and these people often become carpenters, tool and die makers, surgeons, etc. Others are bent toward using their minds to make a living, and these people may become internet technology people, or possibly get into business administration. It is sad that some young people today never seem to find out what they are good at doing; they end up going from one job to another, not liking any of them. I have known young people who spent most of their lives trying to figure out what to do. Others are not motivated to go out and earn their own living at all, and set up their own homes, but prefer to continue living with their parents even as adults. If we have trouble in this, we can ask the Lord to help us, for He loves to guide us in the right way. But we must remember that no job in this world is perfect; they all involve doing things that we may not like doing. This is good training; keep it up and do your best!
When it comes to our spiritual gifts, again, as we have seen, a time of training is often necessary in our lives. We would never think of undertaking a complicated job in natural things without having the proper training. The Lord knows how to put us through situations that train us for what He wants us to do. Often He will give us something to do that is quite simple, and then, as we progress, He leads us on to bigger things. The great thing to remember is that our service for the Lord is for His glory, and not for our own recognition. We must be content to look forward to reward in heaven, and not expect it down here.

Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:11)
He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.1 – I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.2
Because I live, ye shall live also.3 – I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.4
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. … For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.5

Comfort of the Scriptures
“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe” (1 Thess. 2:13).
When we recognize that the Bible is the very Word of God, when we can truthfully say to the Lord that “my heart standeth in awe of Thy word. I rejoice at Thy word, as one that findeth great spoil,” then we shall find God’s Word doing a work in our hearts, for it “effectually worketh ... in you that believe.” We will know its cleansing power, for, as our Lord said to His own, “Now are ye clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” We shall experience its guiding power, for “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” We shall know also the “comfort of the Scriptures.” So “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom,” thus finding that your actions are affected, so that your desire will be that “whatsoever ye do in word or deed,” you will “do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.” Then earnestly “desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”
“Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
That I might not sin against Thee,”
That I might show forth His praises,
And that more like Him I may be.
