Subject: December 6th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

Go unto my brethren, and say to them, I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and my God and your God. John 20.17.

This tells us that we have both God and a Father. What then is the difference between God as Father and God as God? The Bible shows us that God as Father signifies His relationship with us individually, while God as God denotes His relationship with the entire universe.

Knowing God as Father causes us to cast ourselves upon His bosom, whereas knowing Him as God induces us to prostrate ourselves on the ground in worship. We are God’s children, living in His love and happily enjoying all that he has bestowed on us. We are God’s people, standing in our place as men worshipping and praising Him. In knowing Him as God we “worship Jehovah in holy array” (Ps. 29.2)! Just as the psalmist sings: “In thy fear will I worship” (5.7). If a person knows God as God, how dare he not fear Him in all things?
