You can try to steer clear of sin. Avoid temptation. Refuse to steal, lie, or use drugs or alcohol. You can indeed try to be sinless. But that is still you. And you are still trying.
Jesus Christ was not holy because He focused His efforts on avoiding sin. Instead, He refused to allow there to be any possible explanation for the quality of His life but the Father, as God, dwelling in Him, as Man. So whom do you want dwelling in you? More of you? Or all of Christ?
This small hardback volume contains fifty short chapters all focused on the indwelling presence of Christ in the believer as the only source of power for living the Christian life. "Only Christ is capable of living the Christian life, for the very obvious reason that He is the Christian life," writes Thomas. The subtitle says it all: "All of Him in All of Me."
This author has a wonderful way of taking the simplest Christian truths and doctrines that you've known all your life and making them come alive in new ways until you exclaim, "Wow, I never saw it like that before."
