A Thought from Watchman Nee

"Christ is the Son of God. He died to atone for men's sin, and after three days rose again. This is the most important fact in the universe. I die believing in Christ." ~Watchman Nee - Note found under his pillow, in prison, at his death.
Watchman Nee was born in Swatow, Fukien province, China in 1903. He became a Christian at the age of 17. Watchman Nee was arrested and imprisoned by the Communists in 1952, he was never released and died in prison in 1972.

I absolutely love this. I have heard of Nee, but I didn't know they found this under his pillow! The song playing right now is, "Stand up and give Him the Glory!"

I love Watchman Nee!
His stuff has impacted me in such a deep way, I don't think I even understand it. I have read most of his books and have been so encouraged by his personal walk with Jesus. He was something special.

I am a musician and WN has inspired many of my songs. I would be honored if you would check out my music on my site. All my music is free for download. Anyway, I just thought that I'd share.
