This book seemed so hard at first. As if I needed some level of education above what I have. I prayed as I listened for my eyes to be opened. For clarity. Chapter 11 is where the whole book became plain as day light for me. By the last chapter I had become new. I was aware of the peace of God as surely as I am aware of my thumb. As I use to pray for gifts such as patience and peace, fruit of the spirit that I received the day I came to know God. Why then did I keep praying for them. It was as if I was born with my thumbs but was not aware of it. Going about using my hands without using my thumbs would make simple things difficult. So in this example praying for thumbs over and over so my day wouldn't be so challenging. Silly because I have thumbs. But what good are they if I can not feel or see them. This book made me aware of my gifts so that they are useful and I praise God for His gifts instead of asking Him for what He already gave me.
I read this 10 years ago and it was an amazing source of biblical clarity and inspiration. It is still just as good if not better! I really liked listening to it this time around.
Excellent exposition of the relationship Christians have with our Father through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Many "Ah-hah" moment while digesting the content as I knew of these truths but Née brought a deeper, fuller context to it's reality God intended and therefore helped me grow in relationship and love for my heavenly Father and savior Jesus.
Third time reading over 40 years. I am older now and the truths about dying with Christ, death of the old man, dying to the law and self effort to serve God and new lift in Christ as we learn to surrender our soul life and yield to the Holy Spirit are now being apprehended by faith and revelation from God. I am like the drowning man who is finally wiling to be rescued and carried to salvation. Thank God for his rest and His peace that passes understanding. If you want to understand the power of God and the dividing of soul and spirit pray for revelation and listen to this book.
I have been reading this book over and over through the years, ever since first meeting my Lord Jesus in 1973. My Bible says that, "If I walk in the Spirit I will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature." "It is not I who live but Christ who lives in me." Apart from the Bible and My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, this is my most recommended book. I purchase it by the dozens to distribute to those that I disciple.
