Life that Wins, The
Do you know the life that wins? Are you ashamed of the kind of Christ-life you live? Have you failed so terribly in your striving for victory that you cry out, "Wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me…?"
The Life that wins is ours!
"The life ordained for Christians is full of rest, full of joy, full of power, and full of the will of God. But let us inquire of ourselves as to what sort of life we are living today. If our life is not what God has ordained it to be, then we need to know victory."
Watchman Nee, The Life That Wins
Be assured that your salvation is at hand: "Thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord" (v 25). For the life that wins is not attained, but obtained. It is not a life changed, but rather a life exchanged. It is not suppression, only expression. It is frankly not in you yourself, because it is in Christ who lives in you.
The Life That Wins by Watchman Nee reveals the many wonders of the life which God gives and you receive when you are born again from above and take Jesus Christ into your heart. The Life of Christ overcomes sin, provides intimate communion with God, and is full of satisfaction and power. It is already in you, just waiting to be explored by you. And in this Christian classic, Nee reveals the secret to experiencing its power.
In order to help believers enjoy this life that wins, Watchman Nee delivered a series of messages on this subject at a conference held in Shanghai, China, in the months of September and October 1935. He dealt with the full range of the exchanged life simply and directly and with his usual thoroughness:
- The believer's personal experience
- The Christian life as ordained by God
- Nature of the Life that wins
- Entering into the Life that wins
- Conditions for accessing victory
- Testing of our faith
If your life does not reflect the joy and victory of Christ Himself, then you're missing out on the great promise of salvation: the Life that wins!
