Nothing has done greater damage to our Christian testimony that our trying to beright and demanding right of others. We become preocupied with what is and what is not right....but this is not our standard. The whole question for us is cross-bearing. You ask me, "Is it right for someone to strike my cheek?" I reply, "Of couse not! But the question is, do you only want to be right?".... Praise God that he makes his sun to shine on the evil and the good. With him it is a question of his grace and not of righ tor wrong. But that is to be our standard also.... We have nothing to stand for, nothing to ask or demand. We have only to give.
Watchman Nee. SIT, WALK, STAND.
