Being Vitalized (6)
The Danger of Drifting Pt. 1
Being Vitalized for a Normal Christian Life and Service. In the Bible there are three kinds of living: the living that was in Egypt before salvation, the living in the wilderness after salvation, and the living in the good land as the goal of our salvation. In this first of three episodes taken from fellowship given by brother Andrew Yu in 2008, our brother was burdened that we, as the real Hebrews or river crossers, would not get stuck wandering in the wilderness but would enter into the good land, signifying a new kind of living, a vital living.
The accompanying reading material used in this meeting is Brother Watchman Nee’s message entitled “Leaking and Drifting” from The Collected Works of Watchman Nee, Volume 21. This is episode 6 of 9 in the series on “Being Vitalized for a Normal Christian Life and Service”. Original message recording and reading material can be accessed on our website here.
Being Vitalized (5)
“Nothing is real to you until you bring it to prayer. Everything you hear is inspiration. Until you pray, it’s not yours.” In this fellowship from 2008, brother Andrew Yu challenges us to all find a vital companion in the new year and get together with them weekly to pray. “If two or three see this revelation, touch the power of Christ’s resurrection, and pray in one accord, they will shake the ends of the earth—Matt. 18:18-20; Acts 1:14; 4:23-33” (Crystallization-Study Outlines—Acts, Chapter 1, Section 1). This is episode 5 of 9 in this series.

Special New Year Fellowship
In this special new year fellowship, brother Minoru Chen shares with us his personal experience and practice of spending a longer period of time with the Lord at the beginning of each new year. During such a time with the Lord, our brother encourages us to practice 6 things: recall, rehearse, reflect, repent, renew, and reset. He also encourages us to gather our family together for a dedicated time in the Lord’s presence and reaffirm that our household is for the Lord.
May the Lord gain our fresh consecration as we start this year and begin a new chapter with Him. “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” – James 4:8a

Trailer – January 2021
In 1988, brother Witness Lee released messages which were later published in the book Messages Given to the Working Saints. This burden was revisited by the co-workers of brother Lee starting in 2007, encouraging the working saints to live and function as what brother Lee called the “backbone” of the church. One of the very first lines of fellowship released at that time focused on 7 practical steps to have a vital living according to the God ordained way. This fellowship will be encapsulated in this first series of podcasts, Being Vitalized for a Normal Christian Life and Service. We hope you will subscribe and follow along, that together we would be strengthened and equipped to live to the Lord. The Living to Him Podcast is available on Apple Podcast, Spotify, and Google Podcast, as well as here on this dedicated page on LivingToHim.com.
