"God makes it quite clear in his Word that he has only one answer to every human need--his Son, Jesus Christ. In all his dealings with us he works by taking us out of the way and substituting Christ in our place. The Son of God died instead of us for our forgiveness: he lives instead of us for our deliverance. So we can speak of two substitutions--a Substitute on the Cross who secures our forgiveness and a Substitute within who secures our victory."
An early leader in what became China's phenomenal house church movement, Watchman Nee (1903-1972) spent the last 20 years of his life in a communist prison. This powerful meditation brings the daily reality of following Christ into sharp focus.
