    Holy Spirit quotes by:    

Let us therefore not deceive ourselves. In walking according to the spirit we shall hear the direction of conscience. Do not try to escape any inward reproach; rather, be attentive to its voice.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Children of God should not make a general confession by acknowledging their innumerable sins in a vague manner, because such confession does not provide conscience opportunity to do its perfect work. They ought to allow the Holy Spirit through their conscience to point out their sins one by one. Christians must accept its reproach and be willing, according to the mind of the Spirit, to eliminate everything which is contrary to God.

    Author: Watchman Nee

There are countless Christians who consider the occasional working of the Holy Spirit in their spirit to be the most sublime of their life experiences. Were they to live by the spirit according to its law, however, they would discover that these are everyday occurrences.

    Author: Watchman Nee

One thing is unmistakable: the soul is affected by outside influences, but not the spirit. For example, when the soul is provided with beautiful scenery, serene nature, inspiring music, or many other phenomena pertaining to the external world, it can be moved instantly and respond strongly. Not so the spirit. Hence those that are genuinely spiritual can be active whether or not their soul has feeling or their body has strength.

    Author: Watchman Nee

In walking after the spirit we must avoid all haste.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Some seek the gifts of the Holy Spirit with genuine earnestness. Yet often what they crave is but some joy, for the "I" is hidden behind their quest.

    Author: Watchman Nee

What is really valuable before God is not how we emotionally feel the presence of the Lord or how we even feel love towards Him; rather is it how we follow the Holy Spirit and live according to what He has revealed to our spirit. Not emotion but communion with the Lord in the spirit is what is valuable before God.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The gospel we preach must not be just something we hear from men or read from books or even conceived through our meditation. Unless it is delivered to us by God, it can serve no spiritual utility.

    Author: Watchman Nee

To confirm whether or not we are moved by, and walk in, the Holy Spirit, we must see if any given thing harmonizes with the teaching of the Bible. The revelation of the Holy Spirit sensed by our spirit must coincide with the revelation of the Holy Spirit in Scripture.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The adversary is familiar with the requirements of the spirit; therefore he frequently acts against he believer's soul and body. One's mind may be confused, his emotions disturbed, his will weary and impotent to actively govern the whole being, or his body overly tired and temporarily lazy. He must resist these symptoms at one or else his spirit will be blocked in.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The spiritual person, however, doe s not consider the things of God as his own but loves the whole church in his heart.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Everything therefore which is capable of impairing spiritual consciousness must be denied. We must shun wild laughter, bitter crying, and every other extreme outburst of physical emotion. The body should be kept in perfect calm. Never allow anything to hinder us from understanding the small still throb of the spirit.

    Author: Watchman Nee
