    Watchman Nee on:    

It is a fact that the Lord Jesus has already died for you. It is also a fact that you have already died with the Lord Jesus. If you do not believe in your death with Christ, you will not be able to receive the effectiveness of death with Him - freedom from sin.

    Topics: Sin, Freedom, Salvation

Sins must be treated progressively one by one until all have been eliminated.

    Topics: Sin, Repentance

    Topics: Sin

God's people often erroneously think that they need a contrite spirit only at the time they repent and believe in the Lord or whenever they subsequently fall into sin. We should know, however, that God wishes us to keep our spirit in a state of contrition at all times. We ought never sin; yet we always should have sorrow for sin. The presence of God is felt in such a spirit.

    Topics: Sin

If a child of God cherishes sin in his heart he is lending his mind to satanic spirits for their use.

    Topics: Sin, The Heart

The Christian dare not entertain the slightest self-confidence, self-satisfaction or self-joy, as though he could trust his flesh.

    Topics: Stubbornness, Self-confidence

Revelation is the first step to holiness, and consecration is the second. A day must come in our lives, as definite as the day of our conversion, when we give up all right to ourselves and submit to the absolute Lordship of Jesus Christ.

    Topics: Submission, Consecration
