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.Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
|Very useful insights inside.... Nov 18, 2001|
|Certainly an authority on Christian character. An excellent resource splendidly articulated. You just keep coming back to it.|
|REQUIRED READING Jan 7, 2001|
|Too many Christians are concerned about operating in the power of God. But the power of God without the character of God is useless in the longterm. I've read thousands of books during my lifetime. This is one of the top five. It is a rare breed of a book and a must read for anyone who is serious about building the inner character of God.|
|Essential for the followers of Christ! Nov 25, 1999|
|I recommend this book to all "new" christians and "old" ones alike. It clearly defines many of the characteristics of the christian life that usually go untouched in churches today. A must read for all believers!|
|To serve the Lord as a proper vessel! Jul 22, 1998|
|Only a proper vessel can contain the riches of Christ. The riches of Christ is the supply and power in God's work. Those who serve the Lord must be a proper vessel. This book will tell us how.|
