Pray that the saints would have a new start in practicing the God-ordained way, the new way for the Lord’s new move to carry out and practice the dispensing in God’s New Testament economy (1 Tim. 1:4 and note 43; 1 Cor. 4:15b; 1 Thes. 2:7; Eph. 4:11-12; 1 Cor. 14:4).
1 Tim. 1:4—Nor to give heed to myths and unending genealogies, which produce questionings rather than God’s economy, which is in faith.
1 Cor. 4:15b—In Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
1 Thes. 2:7—But we were gentle in your midst, as a nursing mother would cherish her own children.
Eph. 4:11-12—And He Himself gave some as apostles and some as prophets and some as evangelists and some as shepherds and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints unto the work of the ministry, unto the building up of the Body of Christ.
1 Cor. 14:4—He who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but he who prophesies builds up the church.
