“Sit Walk Stand” is amazing! I thank God for the insight and discernment from Watchman Nee!!

This book should be required reading for the true believer seeking to mature and grow in Christ. It is Spirit filled, stretching your faith and understanding while at the same time challenging you to grow using accountability as the basis for the reason to follow Christ. For such a small book, it packs a wealth of Holy Spirit fire and knowledge. You. Will. Not. Regret. It.

Sit Walk Stand is a simple presentation of profound fundementals; meat and potatoes for the christai

Basic necessity and profound concepts presented in simple understandable ways.

So simple, so profound

Watchman Nee has been inspiring Christians all over the world for many decades. His Asian worldview informs his Christianity in such a way that he brings a completely different understanding that is refreshing to Western readers able to follow what he writes.In "Sit, Walk, Stand," Nee tackles the book of Ephesians discussing the Christian's placement in Christ. First, he notes how a Christian must start his journey with Christ by sitting--resting alongside the Savior who has done all the work. And because Christ has done all the work, the Christian is given the peace of knowing there is nothing he or she can add. Walking comes from being seated as the Christian merely lives out the Christian life by claiming his place seated alongside Christ. Our ministry comes via the finished work. And lastly, in standing, the Christian holds the territory Christ has taken from Satan by calling on the name of Jesus and living out Christ's triumph.As with all Nee works, the outright simplicity and wisdom of his writing cuts to the soul and spirit. For those who struggle in their Christian journey, the author's words come as a joyful balm since he shows how we can stop trying to do it all by ourselves and let Christ rule.With so much packed into such a short book, this is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to find peace in Christ while living out a more vital existence. A must read and truly worthy of five stars.

Simple but Profound, Memorable and Practical

Sit, Walk, Stand is based on the three key words which divide the book of Ephesians into its basic sections. Our position in Christ is one of sitting, our life in the world is one of walking and our attitude toward Satan is one of standing. The Christian's entire life is to be founded and lived out from the finished work of Jesus. In it's 78 pages the book concisely sums up a massive amount of Biblical theology and applies it to the believer's every day life. Watchman Nee takes the grand theological treatise of Ephesians and breaks it down into simple, memorable and practical statements. "Christianity begins not with the big DO, but with a big DONE" (pg. 14). "The all important rule is not to "try" but to "trust," not to depend upon our own strength but upon His" (pg. 38). "Our task is one of holding, not of attacking. We do not fight for victory, we fight from victory" (pg. 55). This is only a sampling of many profound statements, which have launched hundreds of sermons. The spiritual truths outlined in Sit, Walk, Stand are simple but profound, critical but often forgotten. The book is a great source for reminding us of these truths. Most of the works of Watchman Nee are wonderful. I recommend the novice to his writings start with this one. It is easy and quick to read yet covers the key understandings further explained in his larger volumes.

Kindergarten - College for new Christians, in one book.

This book has changed my life entirely. It is very thorough, and is entirely supported by scriptural reference. It allows one to enjoy the mercy of God, and rest in the salvation, bought for us, by Jesus Christ. This book makes one desire to reconstruct the personal methods of dealing with everyday life. It gives step by step instructions on how to live an easier, happier Christian life. It also, at the same time, gives inner peace, confidence and strength, through the teachings in the Bible. It is a great resource for those interested in personal spiritual growth. Watchman Nee was a prolific writer and led a inspirational life. He has a truly unique writing style. His work is both thorough and easy to understand. It is truly a book for the new and experienced Christian alike. This book is rather short, and rather cheap. It is a definite must-have!

The cross as the basis for the entire Christian life

Such a beautiful book! Essentially a study in Ephesians, Nee transforms three of the most common words in any language into a powerful encapsulation of the believer's experience in Christ Jesus. It's all grace, from beginning to end. Our salvation, our ministry, our spiritual warfare - all rest on Christ's finished work on the cross. One reading is enough to utterly convince, and change your perspective forever, but you'll not read it just once. You'll never look at Ephesians the same way again, either! Nee's little book will have you turning to Ephesians the rest of your life as your first stop in times of spiritual turmoil. Sit, walk, stand - but never stop sitting!
