基督在這麼多方面是如此包羅萬有、超越而奇妙的一位，我們爲了要經歷祂，就需要信入祂，（約三15，）愛祂，（二一15，）喫喝祂，（六57 下，林前十二13下，）享受祂，（彼前二3，）活祂並顯大祂。（腓一20 ～ 21 上。）（三一神作三部分人的生命，九○頁。）

Lev. 2:1 And when anyone presents an offering of a meal offering to Jehovah, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil on it and put frankincense on it.
John 6:57 As the living Father has sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also shall live because of Me.
The meal offering (Lev. 2:1) typifies Christ in His humanity as food for God and especially for those who have fellowship with God and serve Him. In His humanity Christ is our food and constant satisfaction.
The meal offering was made of fine flour mingled with oil (Lev. 2:4). The fine flour, with its evenness and fineness, typifies Christ’s perfect humanity with its balance, evenness, and fineness. The four Gospels portray the fineness of the Lord’s behavior in His human living. The oil mingled with the fine flour signifies the divine Spirit. This mingling typifies the mingling of divinity with humanity in the Lord Jesus. The frankincense added to the meal offering (Lev. 2:15) signifies the fragrance of resurrection life. This is Christ typified by the meal offering, the mingling of humanity and divinity with the fragrant manifestation of resurrection life to be our daily nourishment and supply. (The Conclusion of the New Testament, p. 460)
The life Christ lived on earth was a life without leaven and without honey,and we should live the same kind of life today. We need to have the four positive elements—fine flour, oil, frankincense, and salt—but not the two negative elements—leaven and honey. If this is our situation, we will be a proper meal offering, an offering composed of humanity oiled with divinity in resurrection through Christ’s death and without leaven and honey. This kind of life is food to satisfy God and also to nourish us as God’s serving ones. (Life-study of Leviticus,p. 134)
In Acts 27 and 28 Paul lived Christ in a situation that was altogether contrary to his culture and character. Many things were disappointing and discouraging, but Paul nevertheless lived a life of the highest standard....In Paul the wonderful,excellent, and mysterious God-man, who lived in the Gospels, continued to live through one of His many members. This was Jesus living again on earth in His divinely enriched humanity. Paul’s living, therefore, was a repetition of the living of Jesus. (Life-study of Acts, p. 624)
Since Christ is such an all-inclusive, excellent, and marvelous person in so many aspects, we need, for experiencing Him, to believe in Him (John 3:15), love Him (21:15), eat and drink Him (6:57b; 1 Cor. 12:13b), enjoy Him (1 Pet. 2:3), and live and magnify Him (Phil. 1:20-21a). (CWWL, 1990, vol. 1, “The Triune God to Be Life to the Tripartite Man,” p. 295)
In the Gospel of Luke we see the kind of man God intended to have in Genesis 1 and 2. This means that God’s intention was to have a God-man. In Genesis 1 we have the man created by God in His image. For man to be created in God’s image means that man is created according to God’s attributes. God is love and light, and He is also holy and righteous. Love, light, holiness, and righteousness are God’s attributes, and God created man according to these attributes. However, the man created by God in Genesis 1 merely bore God’s image. He did not have God within him. Hence, he was merely a God-created man; he was not yet a God-man. (Lifestudy of Luke, p. 84)
First Timothy 3:16 says, “And confessedly, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was manifested in the flesh.”...Godliness here refers not only to piety but also to the living of God in the church, that is, to God as life lived out in the church. Godliness means that God becomes man and man becomes God. This is a great mystery in the universe. God has become man so that man may become God to produce a corporate God-man for the manifestation of God in the flesh as the new man. (The God-men, p. 15)
