Have we learned that Christ is ALL spiritual matters and things?
We are facing a serious problem in Christendom. What are we pursuing? What do we know, and what have we gained in the spiritual realm? Is it Christ, or is it something else? When believers touch Christ, they touch the reality of all spiritual matters and things. When believers gain Christ, they gain everything that God has prepared for those who love Him.
Christ is All Spiritual Matters and Things presents five messages which are central to the ministry of Watchman Nee.
- Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life
- Christ is the Resurrection and the Life
- Christ is the Bread of Life and the Light of Life
- Christ is God's Matters and Things
- Christ Only—Not Matters or Things
These messages uphold and exalt the preeminence of Christ in the Bible and in the believers' experience. If we are focused on something other than Christ, no matter how good and valuable, we are merely touching vain and unprofitable things!
In this book, Watchman Nee enlightens believers to see that without a vision of the all-inclusive Christ, even their most sincere seeking after God can be misdirected toward gaining good teachings, positive virtues, and spiritual growth, all of which can be apart from the Christ Who is the way, the truth, and the reality.
"In Christianity, there are counterfeits to everything. There is false repentance, false confession, false salvation, false zeal, false love, false spiritual works, and false spiritual gifts. Everything can be counterfeited; even life can be counterfeited. Many Christians think that good feelings are life. They think that an exciting atmosphere and loud noises are life. If you ask them what life is, they will not separate life from feelings; they always mix the two together. They do not realize that life is deeper than feelings."
