The three volumes of Basic Elements of the Christian Life present truths in the Bible that are crucial to our life with the Lord Jesus. They cover matters such as God’s plan of salvation, contacting and experiencing Christ in our human spirit, growing in the Lord, and the building up of the church.
God’s plan of salvation is presented in chapter 1, “The Mystery of Human Life.” The following chapters detail several basic experiences for a Christian. The final chapter presents the ultimate key to a believer’s Christian life—the experience of Christ in the human spirit. For those seeking God and for believers who desire to grow in Christ, these messages will establish a firm foundation for a rich and meaningful Christian life.
The central point of the Christian life is to know Christ Himself. For this we need to contact and experience Him in a living way day by day. This experience involves some basic elements, including proper spiritual food, regular spiritual worship, and deep spiritual growth.
There are further experiences of Christ that are basic to the Christian life. As believers, we should live according to the higher principle of life, rather than just the principle of right and wrong. When the life of God operates in us, the shining of this life brings us into a proper living and builds us up with other believers into a corporate expression of God, which is the church. This volume details these experiences. These messages impart spiritual food into all believers for both their personal growth in the Lord and for the growth and building up of the church.
