Book Description

Do you know the life that wins? Are you ashamed of the kind of Christian 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 . . . ?” (Rom. 7.24) 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 which God gives and you receive at the time you believe in His Son Jesus Christ is such a life. It is a life that overcomes sin, provides intimate communion with God, and is full of satisfaction and power. It is already in you, waiting to be explored by you. The secret towards experiencing its power is to let go of yourself and let Christ live instead of you. This requires a childlike faith. Then shall you more than conquer through Him who loves you. In order to help believers into enjoying 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 this important subject in his usual thoroughness yet simplicity and directness. At that conference, the author began with the believer’s personal experience which, shamefully, is much less than desired. Then, by contrast, he described the kind of Christian life as ordained by God. Next, he dealt with the nature of this life that wins before he showed the way of entering into it. In more detail, he treated the matters of yielding and believing, which are the conditions for crossing the threshold of victory. But the author of these messages then warned his audience of the testing of faith which must follow. He exhorted believers to grow in the grace of Jesus Christ. He stressed also the need for having the note of triumph, which is praise. And finally, he concluded with the first and last act after victory, which is consecration. These messages are now being translated from the Chinese for the first time and presented to the readers in book form. May the Lord of glory be glorified through His life being lived out in His own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Christian should read this 15 Oct. 2012
By Davide
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this first to read on my Kindle. I now value the teaching in this book so much that I have ordered a hard copy to underline passages and highlight prayers for my regular use.

This is a book about faith. It is a practical book for all wish to live out their Christian lives a little more successfully than they are now. The teaching on the practicality of faith in successfully overcoming one's continued failings and weaknesses in life seems too simple to be true. I have spent months studying the teaching in this book; checking out the teaching with the bible and with other authors. All I have discovered tells me that for many years I have not fully appreciated how Jesus (and Paul) would have us live the Christian life. It's nothing about doing; it's all about faith. The secret of the Christian life really is Christ in me.

I found some of the early chapters almost too challenging but the later chapters become more practical. I have personally discovered the truth of letting God change me through the application of faith, and how to walk in faith. And now I have discovered it, I seem to see it everywhere in Jesus's teaching and in the New Testament

I would also recommend reading "How to Live The Victorious Life" by An Unknown Christian.

Watchman Nee's message is consistent with another book based on his teachings from Ephesians: Sit, Walk, Stand. The Life that Wins is a message of hope to struggling Christians trying to live a life of faith. The main concept or truth from this book for me is that the Christian life is not about change but about exchange. One can never try to change by their own effort to be good enough but to repose in Christ, "Looking unto Jesus the auther and finisher of our faith". The book's message suggests that we should be thankful for our weaknesses because by them, we are forced to accept Christ's strength, that he is our strength and everything else. Our life is exchanged for the life of Christ.
