Watchman Nee Daily Devotional for March 21 Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5.48. We truly know the standard laid down in the Bible for a Christian. We as followers of Christ must not follow our own will but be righteous as God is righteous and seek with singleness of heart His kingdom. But are we really such in actuality? How frequently we sin. How often our heart is unclean, our temper often flares up. In other words we ought but we cannot. Yet at the same time we acknowledge that Christ has already attained perfection. And hence all this demonstrates the fact that only God himself can live up to the living standard He has established. Put another way, we may say that it takes the same life to live the comparable kind of living. For example, only a bird can live a birds life or an animal an animals life. So that it may accurately be stated that only God can live Gods life. And since Christ is God, therefore Christ alone can live Gods type of living.
Amazing Word from W.Nee.And we can add to say:Christ living in me and through me the life that is pleasing to God at all times. God makes us to be partakers of His holiness and His divine nature (Hebrews 12 and 2Peter1).We need the life of God to live a life pleasing to God. Oh! What a mystery!
