“The Indwelling Life of Christ: All of Him in All of Me” – By Ian Thomas
“To be entirely honest, I know of nothing quite so boring as Christianity without Christ. Countless people have stopped going to a place of worship simply because they are sick of going through the motions of a dead religion. They are tired of trying to start a car on an empty tank. What a pity that there are not more people around to show them that Jesus Christ is alive.
I know of nothing so utterly exciting as being a Christian, sharing the very Life of Jesus Christ on earth right here and now, being caught up with Him into the relentless, invincible purposes of the Almighty God, and having available to us all the limitless resources of Deity for accomplishing those purposes. Can you imagine anything more exciting than that?
Only Christ is capable of living the Christian life, for the very obvious and simple reason that He is the Christian life. We will look to Him to learn how He lived as Man in His relationship to the Father when He came to live upon this earth.
He will show us how He intends us to live in our relationship to Him, helping us discover in fuller depth what it means not just to become a Christian but actually to be one, and giving us a new vision for all that being a Christian really means.”
