Subject: January 18th — Daily Devotional by Watchman Nee

For the word of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us who are saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1.18.

When we preach the cross, we should be those who can impart the life of the cross to other people. What pains me greatly is, that although many are now preaching the cross, the hearers do not seem to receive the life of God. People listen to our words; they appear to approve and gladly receive; yet the life of God is not present.

Man’s thought, word, eloquence and argument can only stir up the human soul. They merely excite man’s emotion, mind and will. Life, however, may reach man’s spirit; and all the works of the Holy Spirit are done in our spirit—that is, in our inward man (see Rom 8.16; Eph. 3.16). As we in our spiritual experience let flow our life in the spirit, the Holy Spirit will send forth His life to the spirits of others and cause them to receive either regenerated life or the life more abundant.
