The great business of Christians is to learn Christ. This is not just a subject to study. I want to ask you: What is the greatest desire in your life? I wonder if it is the same as mine! The greatest desire in my heart – and the longer I live the stronger it grows – is to understand the Lord Jesus…The one business of disciples is to know Him, and to do what He called His disciples to do: “Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me” (Matthew 11:29). Jesus came to bring heavenly knowledge in His own person, and in His person we come into heavenly knowledge. It is not just what He says: it is what He says He is.

The members of the new heavenly Israel are people who have been delivered from self-interest into God’s interest, who have been put on their spiritual feet by Jesus Christ and are walking in strength in the way of the Lord…Yes, that is the secret – that we shall turn from our miserable selves and cease to be occupied with them, saying once and for all: “I am done with you, wretched self. I throw myself on to Jesus Christ. I take the one great step of committal.” Jesus never lets such a person down.
