Watchman Nee is maybe the most famous preacher that has ever come out of China. He suffered persecution for the faith and was responsible for setting up hundreds of churches. But how many of us know much about his actual life story?

In the sermon, “Why This Waste?” Watchman Nee challenges listeners to think through what the world might call wasting your life on God. He on the other hand says that it is actually rightfully living for and following God.
