• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride

    基督與召會
    生命與建造
    那靈與新婦



    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Outline of “A Word of Love”

We must have a loving and forgiving heart of God the Father
We must have a shepherding and seeking spirit of our Savior Christ

Beware of 4 Negative Factors

  1. Ambition
    • To be a leader
    • To gain a locality or even a region
    • To captivate people
  2. Pride
    • To boast our spiritual capacity in secrecy
    • To exalt ourselves
    • To despise others
    • To consider ourselves better than others
  3. Self-justification
    • To justify ourselves
    • To speak well of our success and merits
    • To expose others’ failures and defects
    • To condemn others
  4. Not conforming to the death of Christ
    • Not to deny our self
    • Not to bear the cross
    • Not to crucify our natural man
    • Not to put to death our natural disposition

Be right in following others

  1. Be careful in following coworkers whom you are attracted to
    • The worker should be a person loving the Lord, living for the Lord, denying one’s self, natural life, preferences and ambition.
    • The worker must correctly hold the complete revelation of the entire Bible without any twisting.
    • The worker must be a person who stands on the unique ground of local church, diligently keeping the oneness of the Spirit, the oneness of the universal body.
  2. Be discerning in accepting the divine revelation according to the holy Scripture
    • The accepting of the divine revelation must be governed by:
      • God’s eternal economy as the basic principle
      • Christ as the centrality and universality of God’s eternal economy
      • The body of Christ as God’s goal
    • The applying of the divine truth must avoid:
      • Uplifting any basic truths
      • Neglecting or stressing any subordinate truths
