The Normal Christian Life {Ch #10 and #11}

We're rapidly nearing the end of our study through Or The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. My Bible study has just one chapter left and then we'll be breaking for the holidays so I am hurrying to finish up these chapter summaries/outlines/reflections. Whatever they are. Mostly I just write these so that the things … Continue reading The Normal Christian Life {Ch #10 and #11}

Watchman Nee – The Normal Christian Life {Ch #9} {15/31 Niches}

Ali grinning at the Cebu today. Because I like it. So stole it off my mom's facebook. And put it here for you. Ok, for me. And you. The end. :) This is a continuation of my study and chapter by chapter summary of The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. And chapter 9 just … Continue reading Watchman Nee – The Normal Christian Life {Ch #9} {15/31 Niches}

The Normal Christian Life {Ch #8}

Chapter 8: The Holy Spirit Two of my favorite things about this chapter were how Nee emphasized that We don't all have the same experience of the Holy Spirit: "We cannot and must not stipulate what particular form such outward expressions will take in every given case, but one thing is sure, that each one … Continue reading The Normal Christian Life {Ch #8}

The Normal Christian Life: Ch #7

Chapter 7: The Eternal Purpose. In this chapter Nee talks about God's purpose in creation and redemption. He says, "It may be summed up in two phrases, one from each of our two sections of Romans. It is "the glory of God" (Romans 3:23), and "the glory of the children of God" (8:21). And that's … Continue reading The Normal Christian Life: Ch #7

The Normal Christian Life: Ch#6

And just visiting is lovely too. :) At this point we started reading a chapter of the Bible in … Continue reading The Normal Christian Life: Ch#6

The Normal Christian Life {Ch#5}

I'm slowly working through these chapter reviews/summaries. It is good to be able to look back and see some of our thoughts and it helps me to process each chapter just a little more. I learn about things by writing about them. Our group is on chapter 8 now, but here is my take on … Continue reading The Normal Christian Life {Ch#5}

The Normal Christian Life (Ch#4)

Chapter 4: The Path of Progress: Reckoning Brief Summary: The discussion in this chapter is based on parts of two verses from Romans. Romans 6: "Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him." Romans 6:11"Even so reckon yourselves to be dead unto sin." Nee argues that in order to know that we are … Continue reading The Normal Christian Life (Ch#4)

The Normal Christian Life (Ch#3)

So this chapter sort of threw me for a loop. After I read it but before we discussed in our study I was sure I understood it just fine. In fact I felt like it cleared up some problems from the last study. In our study of Ch#2 we talked about the cross as the … Continue reading The Normal Christian Life (Ch#3)
