Watchman Nee Excerpts
“The Church is not to trust in miracles, for they may only lead to outward things. Israel, in the wilderness continually touched God’s works, but missed His life. So did the multitudes in the Gospels, who witnessed the Lord’s gracious acts but knew nothing of the life He came to give. But the ‘seed is the word.’ Apart from God’s current thought, nothing counts for much. Miraculous works may support the Word; they cannot by themselves produce life. It is by the eternal Now Word of the Lord that the Church must grow.” 12:37 p.m.
