The normal Christian Life

God is Good, recently I bought a book called ‘the Normal Christian Life’ by Watchman Nee. It is a nice thing to have a regular book instead of reading all books online. It gives you some kind of rest while you read the sentences put on paper, and as we all know: while at rest, doors are open for fresh revelation. 

It’s not a strange idea to think that reading a regular book is healthier for the soul than reading an e-book. Your eyes are resting, and you are less distracted because you’re not connected to the internet.

This particular book (The normal Christian Life) deals with the fundamental beliefs of Christianity and explains the Blood, Cross, Walk in the Spirit, and it boosts your spiritual awareness. Watchman Nee wrote a lot of books, one of the books I really liked is ‘Spiritual Man’ in which Nee exposes the myths and truths concerning Body, Soul, and Spirit. Some other books which I still want to order, are the ‘Latent power of the Soul’ and ‘Spiritual Authority’.

I really recommend all of you to dig into his writings! Here is a link to all of the material.

  1. Watchman Nee was a great Christian. I have also read “The Spiritual Man”–it is a classic. Here are some excerpts from his works:

    1. Thanks Tim! But I have heard one say that Nee was not a Pentacostal Christian, do you know more about this? I mean, that Nee did not advocate the power of the Spirit to heal people miraciously or to drive out demons.

  2. That is hard for me to believe. From reading his writings, I perceive the power of the Holy Ghost in his life.

    The Baptism in the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues gives us power to witness, preach and to live life. Dying to self gives us depth of spirit. Watchman Nee had a lot of depth in his writings.

    I have met some Pentecostals that didn’t have any spiritual depth: they make a religion out of praying in tongues. This is why I am glad that my two major Christian influences are Monastic Christianity (i.e., I have read the writings of John of the Cross and Theresa of Avila) and Pentecostal Christianity.

    1. Words of Wisdom! Great to hear your opinion about it, I find that Nee has the true essence of faith in his writings. You should check out the John G Lake ministries, a brother, Curry Blake, has done a 30-year study on the healing power of the Holy Spirit and he recommends the writings of Watchman Nee! Very encouraging ministry!
