Journeying Towards the Spiritual
Journeying Towards the Spiritual: A Digest of The Spiritual Man
God's desire is to commune with man. God being spirit, the man who worships Him must worship in spirit and truth. It is therefore essential for man to be spiritual. This is what the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about. Salvation is the way to spirituality.
"With sin under his feet and all lusts and passions of the flesh behind his back, the believer now enters a new realm. he may picture himself wholly spiritual. When he turns to eye those others who remain entangled in sin he cannot but feel elated and wonder how he has reached the summit of spiritual life. Little does this one realize that far from being completely spiritual he still remains partially carnal; he is yet a soulish or carnal Christian."
Watchman Nee, Journeying Towards the Spiritual
The original three volume set of The Spiritual Man by Watchman Nee serves as a guide, not as a manual, to walk in spiritual life as well as to fight spiritual warfare. It was written under tremendous spiritual conflict, and only through the grace of God and the victory of Christ was Nee able to finish the writing. Now having become a Christian classic, it may be considered as Nee's legacy to the Church.
However, with a total of 694 pages, a digest of it seemed to be urgently needed. Journeying Towards the Spiritual is that very digest. There are 42 chapters dealing with the 42 different aspects of the spiritual man in Nee's original three volume work. Hence, there are 42 lessons contained in this digest. Each lesson is a clear synopsis of its parent chapter. May we be guided by the Spirit of God to heartily learn these necessary lessons all to the glory of God!
