The following is from Watchman Nee:
“Men rejected Christ, not on the ground of what he did but on who he was, and they are invited to believe in what he is and who he is, and not, first of all, in what he has done. ‘He who hath the Son hath life.’
The appreciation of his work must come, but the main question is whether or not you have the Son, and not, first of all, whether or not you understand the whole plan of salvation. The first condition of salvation is not knowledge, but meeting Christ.
There are people who you may feel were saved by the wrong Scriptures! They were spoken to through verses that do not seem to point the way of salvation, and you almost feel that they could not be saved by that basis!
~ Watchman Nee
Have you ever met Christians who felt that understanding “the plan of salvation” was more important than meeting Jesus Christ Himself or who equated the two as being the same?
