My Love for the Lord Jesus

My Love for the Lord Jesus

“The genuine New Testament ministry…stirs up our love for the Lord Jesus” (Training Outlines, The Crucial Contents of God’s New Testament Ministry)

I can testify that the genuine New Testament ministry has stirred up my love for the Lord. I grew up in the local church in Dunn Loring (in the Washington, D. C. area) and currently meet with the local church in Austin, TX, since I’m going to school in Austin. I have been under the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee my whole life. Hearing their ministry spoken to me as a child caused me to say, “Lord Jesus, come into my heart” when I was only three or four years old. Hearing it spoken to me in junior high and high school caused me to desire to develop a real, loving, relationship between the Lord and myself, where I talk to Him and He speaks to me. I read my Bible and came to know Him as a real Friend to whom I could tell anything and who loved me more than I could ever fathom. Hearing this ministry spoken caused me to want to read the books of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee for myself because, at times, the Bible was a mystery to me. Now, in knowing it for myself, my love for the Lord Jesus and my appreciation of Him has become stronger and deeper than ever before. Having been under this ministry my whole life, I can say that my love for the Lord Jesus has been stirred up and has grown as a direct result of hearing the things in Watchman Nee’s and Witness Lee’s books spoken by the brothers and sisters, as well as by reading their books on my own.

The brothers and sisters in the local churches are really my family. Many have watched me grow up physically, mentally, and spiritually, and have also shepherded me in the process. Much love and effort has been poured out upon me (as well as upon others) in children’s meetings, in the young people’s meetings, and in the college meetings. Sometimes I feel like I’m a baby bird to whom the adult birds regurgitate food that has already been digested. There are many brothers and sisters with much more experience in the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee than I have, and they speak to me what they have enjoyed and what has nourished them in these two brothers’ books and messages. It feeds me, and sometimes even fans into flame my waning love for the Lord. For these two brothers who gave their lives to speak only God’s New Testament ministry and who, by doing so, stirred up my love for the Lord Jesus, as well as for the brothers and sisters who spoke this ministry to me, I will be eternally grateful.
