We should not think that as Christians our humanity is safeguarded. Whether our humanity will be safeguarded or not depends on whether or not we continue to love the Lord and consecrate ourselves. This is why the new way is helping us to be revived every morning and to overcome every day. Such a living will keep us in the proper condition. Otherwise, it will be impossible for us to live out the normal, proper humanity.
God does not use brute force to rule over this part of us. Rather, He draws us with His love. We see this in the Lord’s question to Peter, “Do you love Me?” Peter answered, “Yes, Lord, You know that I love You.” The Lord said to him, “Shepherd My sheep” (John 21:16). This is His drawing us with His love. If we do not love the Lord, we lose the restraint that comes from this kind of attraction and are liable to do anything and everything.
When you see a storm, do not listen to rumors and do not be affected by those who have changed. Do not ask why….We have to look to the Lord’s mercy today to keep us unchanged and to preserve us all the way to the end.
May the Lord’s blood cover me. I have the same sensation today. There may be windstorms. But I can still sleep in the stern [Mark 4:37-38]. I hope that you also can be like this. You should know that even with such a short trip as the journey across the Sea of Galilee, there were still frequent windstorms and high waves. (Witness Lee, The Glorious Vision and the Way of the Cross, ch. 4)
