Gathering in Christ

John 8:58
Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly I say to you, before Adam was, I AM.”

The Ancient of Days represents the eternal childhood. God Almighty became the weakest thing in His own creation, a baby. When He comes into us in new birth, we can easily kill His life in us, or else we can see to it that His life is nourished according to the dictates of the Spirit of God so that we grow “to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” The mature saint is just like a little child, absolutely simple and joyful and lively. Go on living the life that God would have you live and you will grow younger instead of older. There is a marvelous rejuvenating when once you let God have His way. If you are feeling very old, then get born again and begin to grow in His new life.
