In the work of God, the worker is more important than the work. If God cannot find the right person, He would rather delay His work. Basically, the training is more in the area of character than of skill. Only a new creation can serve God. Seeing the importance of the workman's character in the service of God, Watchman Nee gave a series of messages on this subject. The fundamental features of the character of God's workman given by Watchman Nee are: * is able to listen * loves all mankind * has a mind to suffer * buffets his body and brings it into subjection * is diligent and not slothful * is restrained in speech * is stable * is not subjective h * has a right attitude towards money and is dealt with on some other important matters.
Covenant or contract is an important theme in the Bible.
God made covenants with His people. He deals with them
according to the covenants He made with them. Today we
are under God's New Covenant. For all God's dealings with us
in addition to our dealings with God will be governed by this
New Covenant. We are therefore called to have New Covenant
Living as well as New Covenant Ministry. It is hence extremely
essential for us to be sure that our living and ministry are of
the New Covenant way.
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.
