-Publisher

Authority is a tremendous thing in the universe, nothing overshadows it. God's throne is established on His authority. God's authority represents God Himself. God alone is authority in all things; all the authorities of the earth are instituted by God. It is therefore important for us who desire to serve God to know the authority of God. God's authority is absolute, hence we must give Him absolute submission ( our heart's attitude ) and absolute obedience ( our outward actions ). But to His delegated authorities we can render absolute submission, but only relative obedience. For their authorities are circumscribed by the measure of the life of Christ in them. Only when they themselves submit to God's authority in them are they able to represent God. Hence there is much we have to learn about how to represent God.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Watchman Nee

Watchman Nee was a Chinese Christian teacher whose numerous works have been widely translated into many languages. Born in 1903, Nee became a Christian at the age of seventeen and began writing the same year. He was imprisoned by Communist Chinese authorities in 1952 and died in prison twenty years later. Nee's books include Come, Lord Jesus; A Living Sacrifice; The Normal Christian Life; The Communion of the Holy Spirit; The Finest of the Wheat; and Love Not the World; among many others. Since the early 1970s, Stephen Kaung has translated more than forty of Watchman Nee's simple, yet profound books for western audiences.-Editorial Review.
