Our God is a God of order and divine arrangement, and He desires that all things be headed up in Christ (Eph. 1:10). In opposition to the divine will, there is rebellion and chaos in God’s creation due to the fall of humanity. According to God’s divine arrangement, the reestablishment of order in the universe is centered on the relationship between Christ, the Head, and the church, His Body. Christ has been made Head over all things to the church (Eph. 1:22), and the living exercise of authority and submission within the Body of Christ is central to the working out of God’s divine will. In Authority and Submission, Watchman Nee presents many helpful principles and examples from the Holy Scriptures related to the proper exercise of both authority and submission, an exercise that is according to the divine life in the Body of Christ.
