Announcement from the saints serving in the Book Service
On behalf of the brothers and sisters serving in the Book Service, it is with a heart full of burden for our going on with the Lord, that we are excited to announce that we have been enjoying reading together The Overcoming Life by Watchman Nee, and would like to extend the invitation to all of you to read with us!
Through our fellowship and reading over this book, the saints on Book Service have all been touched and convicted that we all need to be brought into the experience and reality of living an overcoming life. From chapter 1 of The Overcoming Life:'The life that God ordains for a Christian is one that is filled with peace and joy. It is a life that is full of activity, vitality, and God’s will. But what kind of life do we live? If we are not living the life that God has ordained, we need to overcome and break through in this matter. Consequently, we need to consider our experience today. This is not an easy subject to speak on. Some of our experiences may be quite sad. However, we will see our lack when we humble ourselves. Only then will God grant us grace.' May the Lord bring us all into the overcoming life that God has ordained for every believer (Please read the burden in its entirety at this link )
There will be a $5 voucher given to any saint who is able to finish The Overcoming Life
