Watchman Nee quotes

This year I’ve been reading two Watchman Nee devotional books. I mentioned these to my friend recently, explaining that I had picked them up when in my Watchman Nee phase. (i.e. I raced through several of his books in a row.)

“Ah, yes,” she replied. “Haven’t we all had a Watchman Nee phase?”

I agreed in the moment, but as I thought about it later I realized that Watchman Nee is not a name I’ve heard much in recent years. If you don’t know anything about Watchman Nee, click here for a quick bio. But to whet your appetite for the wisdom of the man, here are a few of though provoking statements I’ve run across so far this year. (These are all fromĀ A Table in the Wilderness.)

I especially love this last one, because it is almost exactly what I read in my Beth Moore Bible study workbook this week. (I’m doing her study on James.)
