Pursuing Christ, Not Exalting Man
Witness Lee, Watchman Nee, Living Stream Ministry, local churches, and the Recovery Version
We have received
much help from the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. Living Stream Ministry
has always been a supplier of their publications and a sponsor of conferences and
trainings for the building up and blending together of the Body so naturally we
are full of appreciation for what we've received from them. The Recovery Version
of the Bible has been a great help to the church in Salt Lake City in our
understanding of the Bible, which is the crucial record of the faith that we have
in common with all of the believers in Christ.
However, it is neither the
persons nor the organizations that are crucial. It is God Himself in His Son as
the life-giving Spirit bringing us into the reality of this wonderful One. Many
times in his speaking we received the exhortation from Witness Lee charging us not
to merely tell people "Witness Lee says…" Rather, he charged us to dive into the Bible,
know the Bible, and to bring people the riches of Christ by presenting them with
the truths concerning Christ in the Bible.
We follow those
brothers who have gone before us to pursue Christ, to exalt Christ, to gain Christ,
and to live Christ. This is the legacy which we have received through the ministry
of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee and which we continue to receive through the
publications and activities of the Living Stream Ministry.
