    Obedience quotes by:    

If we are well established in this point of acknowledging the flesh as already crucified, then we shall be able to proceed in dealing with the flesh experimentally.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The believer needs to acknowledge that his flesh deserves nothing else than the curse of death. Let us pray that we may know what the flesh exactly is and how it must be crucified. What is lacking today is not a better living but a better dying!

    Author: Watchman Nee

For God no cost is too high. Anything can be sacrificed if only we may please Him. Let us daily learn to be obedient children.

    Author: Watchman Nee

To be freed from sin is not a difficult task when viewed in the light of the finished, perfect and complete salvation of God. A believer must proceed to learn the more advanced and perhaps more formidable and deeper lesson of abhorring his life.

    Author: Watchman Nee

God wants us to love Him more than our Isaac.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Let us gaze upon our Lord Jesus Who "endured the cross, despising the shame." The race set before us is none other than that of His despising the shame and enduring the cross.

    Author: Watchman Nee

All thought, cleverness, knowledge, talent and gift-which the world superstitiously worships-must be set aside in order to enable one to trust the Lord wholly. The Lord's people should persistently acknowledge their own unworthiness and incompetency.

    Author: Watchman Nee

If we allow natural affection and human admiration or the lack of these to govern our efforts we will surely fail in our work and our lives shall be ruined. To obtain genuine fruitfulness we frequently need to disregard fleshly relationships. Our thoughts and desires must be offered completely to the Lord.

    Author: Watchman Nee

God does not will He should follow what man has initiated. Other than following God's direction, we have no right to direct Him. We have no ability to offer save to obey God's guidance.

    Author: Watchman Nee

It is a fact that God wants to destroy every work of our flesh, but He never desires to destroy our personality. He takes no pleasure in transforming us into automata; rather does He delight in having us cooperate with Him.

    Author: Watchman Nee

He looks neither at the aggregate of fat nor at the number of burnt offerings but solely at the sum of obedience to Him.

    Author: Watchman Nee

In the matter of fellowship God looks not at how much we apprehend of His will but rather at what our attitude towards His will is. If we honestly seek and wholeheartedly obey His desires, our fellowship remains unbroken, even though there should be many unknown sins in us. Should fellowship be determined by the holiness of God, who among all the most holy saints in the past and the present would be qualified to hold a moment's perfect communion with Him?
