As a wife and a mother of two children, I was a workingwoman who tried her best to resemble Christ. Sometimes I would spend my lunch hour or break time to have fellowship with a sister in the Lord who also worked. We shared with each other our experience of the Lord and we enjoyed God’s abundant grace together. Each time I sensed the freshness of Christ within her and this was very attractive and precious to me. However, there was an impure, hardened concept and element resisting within me.
In the meantime, I came to know more about the local church, and the fellowship of the believers impressed me. After this my husband and I began to meet with the local church and through the first conference we attended, my position as a believer was clearly shown to me.
What is the reality of Christ? This was the question asked by Witness Lee. Then within me there were other questions such as: Christ, who is He? and Where am I? I began to see that even though I thought I loved Christ and was a fervent Christian, the realm of Christ I was in was the realm of imperfect knowledge. Then more light began to shine into my heart and as a little member of the universal Body of Christ the answer to my question of where I am was given to me through 1 Corinthians. Today I am not trying to live a life of imitating Christ by my own effort, but as a member of the body who is captivated by Christ and one with the body. I am encouraged by the enlightening of God’s Word to live by Christ within and express Him in a full way (Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 13:4; Ephesians 1:22-23). I just thank the Lord for His grace and praise the mysterious Christ. Amen!
