W. Nee on the life of Christ

quote _header imageOn living from the life of Christ within us:

“The operation of His life in us is in a true sense spontaneous, that is to say, it is without effort of ours. The all-important rule is not to “try,” but to “trust;” not to depend upon our own strength, but upon His. For it is the flow of life which reveals what we truly are “in Christ.” It is from the Fountain of Life that the sweet water issues.”

— Watchman Nee, Sit, Walk, Stand
