“Ephraim is a cake not turned” (Hosea 7.8). This is a figurativeway of saying “not balanced.” The cake is burned on the one side,uncooked on the other; on one side it is overdone, on the other,totally undone. The cake is unfit to be eaten and is thus destined to becast out.Our God is most balanced. He is love and He is light. Our LordJesus is full of grace and full of truth. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of wisdom as well as of revelation. In creation, God “hath measured thewaters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with a span,and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and the hills ina balance” (Is. 40.12). Concerning redemption, it is said that “mercyand truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed eachother. Truth springeth out of the earth; and righteousness hath lookeddown from heaven” (Ps. 85.10,11). The new creation, therefore, must be well balanced.In this present volume, Watchman Nee attempts to show fromGod’s word the perfect equilibrium of divine truth. Human nature,however, is prone to emphasize one side to the exclusion of the other side of truth. This has caused much confusion and many problemsamong God’s people. It is essential that we know the balance of truthand hold on to both sides so that our Christian life may be well-rounded as God has ordained.The contents of the book opens with a treatment of the balance between the gate and the way; continues with a presentation of the balance between the objective and the subjective; includes adiscussion on the work inward and the work outward in the Christianlife, as well as on the rest given and the rest found as promised byChrist; contemplates the other side of prayer frequently neglected,namely, to watch; and concentrates on the other less emphasized
