Books I Recommend

SIT, WALK, STAND by Watchmen Nee

Keywords in Ephesians
1 Our position in Christ -- "Sit" (2:6)
2 Our life in the world -- "Walk" (4:1)
3 Our attitude to the enemy -- "Stand" (6:11)

"Most Christians make the mistake of trying to walk in order to be able to sit, but that is a reversal of the true order. Our natural reason says, If we do not walk, how can we ever reach the goal?...For Christianity begins not with a big Do, but with a big DONE."

"We must not ask the Lord to enable us to overcome the enemy, nor even look to him to overcome, but praise him because he has already done so; he is victor."

CHRIST The Sum of All Spiritual Things by Watchmen Nee

“A colossal problem exists among God’s children today. The Christianity which they know is quite fragmentary. You obtain a little grace, I receive a little gift…This man experiences some change in his conduct, that man posses some measure of love; this one has patience…But is this Christianity? It is not, for Christianity is Christ. Christianity is not reward, neither is it what Christ gives to me. Christianity is none other that Christ himself.”

“Lord, we confess that our eyes are so blind that we cannot see clearly. Lord, we truly ask You to cause us to see. May Christ become real to us. There is need for much crushing. Crush us, Lord. Do not allow us to deceive ourselves: considering ourselves as having seen though we see nothing, as having touched the way when we are far from it, as being dull of life whereas we are full of things. Lord, touch us. May this be the day of exposure to many people, that we may see ourselves as You see us. May a ray of light strike us which will uncover all falsehood and distinguish Yourself from all substitutes. Bless your own word & glorify Your name. In the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.”
