Update Jan 5

The church in Bellingham has put an offer on a meeting hall, with a closing date of February 3.  The facility is in an excellent location, has an existing (well configured) church meeting space with plenty of parking and extra acreage.  Bellingham is able to fund over half of the purchase price, and we in the Puget Sound have an opportunity to participate in the “fellowship… in the account of giving” (Philippians 4:10) to complete the purchase and some minor aesthetic upgrades.  If the Lord so leads you, please designate any offering through the Church in Bothell to “Bellingham Meeting Hall.See the pictures.

Excerpt from Ministry Reading:
Ministry Digest
, Section Three, Maturing in Life:

PAYING THE PRICE TO BUY THE OIL

Matthew 25:4 shows that the prudent virgins not only carried their lamps but also prepared their vessels with oil. They were those who paid the price to buy oil and to make themselves ready. What is the meaning of paying the price to buy oil and to make ourselves ready? In the Bible oil signifies the Spirit who is God Himself. To buy oil is to pay the price to gain God. No matter what we wish to gain, we must pay a price in order to gain it. In order to make ourselves ready, we have to gain more of the Spirit and more of God. To gain more of God and more of the Spirit requires that we pay a price. For example, the brother in our previous example needed to pay the price of letting go of his insight and views in the matter of his children’s marriages. To put it more directly, his insight and views had to be broken so that God could come into his insight and views. This is to pay the price and to buy the oil. If we pay the price and let God have the ground and the freedom in us in every single matter, then we will be filled with God and possessed by God. Inwardly, we will be full of oil, full of the Holy Spirit, that is, full of God Himself. When we are filled to the uttermost, then we will be matured, and God’s building will be completed.

Further Reading:

Gaining maturity in the divine life requires that we pay a price in our pursuit of the Lord. Having the filling of the Holy Spirit is at a cost, such as giving up the world, dealing with self, loving the Lord above all, and counting all things loss for Christ…If we pass into death before the Lord’s coming, not having paid the price to be matured in His divine life, we will arise in resurrection still in immaturity and unreadiness at the Lord’s coming. (Affirmation and Critique, “The Word of Righteousness:  The Parable of the Ten Virgins”, July 2000, p. 45, p. 47)  by John Campbell.
