“Christ in you, the hope of glory.” —Colossians 1:27 Why do we keep failing even in our best efforts to live the Christian life? Because no one other than Jesus Christ can live it, for the simple reason that He is the Christian life! And only He can live it in our lives as well. Major W. Ian Thomas takes a refreshing look at the pure thrill of living victoriously as you embrace the living Savior’s presence within you. The more you become genuinely and relentlessly available to Christ, the more He can take over so that your Christian walk becomes vibrant and effective! This inspiring devotional, along with the application questions at the end of each reading, will help you focus consistently on Jesus Himself so you can serve and enjoy Him at an entirely new level and dimension. You can try to steer clear of sin. Avoid temptation. Refuse to steal, lie, or use drugs and 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,” writes Major W. Ian Thomas. So whom do you want dwelling in you? More of you? Or all of Christ? Story Behind the Book Major W. Ian Thomas was twelve years old when he accepted the Lord with a simple prayer. But by nineteen, “I had been reduced to spiritual exhaustion,” he says, “with no hope or reason for going on.” It was then that he discovered the life-transforming secret of the indwelling life of the living Lord Jesus Christ. God gave him a message through Galatians 2:20, where he learned to say, “Lord Jesus, I can’t—You never said I could—but You can, and always said You would. That is all I need to know.” Major Thomas came to understand it was Christ Himself living through him who would do His work. This is the message he has been passionately proclaiming all his life.

The New Testament presents both the revelation and the experience of the wonderful Christ. While the Scriptures reveal Christ objectively, they also reveal Christ as a wonderful person who indwells the believers for their subjective experience. After passing through many steps to accomplish God's salvation, Christ comes into the believers to be their life and person within. In The Subjective Experience of the Indwelling Christ Witness Lee opens the Bible to show that Christ today is living within the believers as their all-inclusive, life-giving supply. As those who have received Him by faith, we do not need to practice self-cultivation or mere human ethics because we can experience Christ subjectively. In this way, we can enjoy Christ and let Him live Himself out through us to be the reality and content of our human virtues.

Other topics include the sufficiency of God’s grace, His purpose for man’s creation, His role as comforter, His strength and His faithfulness. A number of articles relate the story of how the brief life of the author’s great grandson and that of his parents had such a significant impact on so many lives. Several articles resulted from the author’s personal life experiences including the emotions involved in moving on from a loved home and lifetime church. Other articles touch on heroes of the bible, a debt you can never pay, Paul Harvey’s radio broadcast of “If I Were the Devil,” and experiencing the indwelling life of Christ. This is the third in a series of books by Jim Davenport dealing with the general topic of Christian Devotions and Quick Studies, which was the title of the first volume. The second volume is An Attitude of Thankfulness.

In the beginning, the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living soul. This breath of the living soul was breathed out by Christ at His death on the Cross and again after the resurrection, He breathed on the disciples the Spirit of God, saying, “Receive the Holy Spirit,” thereby enabling man the transition from the first man Adam into the second man Christ. At the death of Christ, the old covenant along with the external and natural ways of relating with God was nailed to the Cross, bringing forth in His resurrection, the New Covenant life, the body of resurrection, known as the body of Christ, where all those united to Christ in the spirit become one with Him. God wants the entire mankind to live in and by the New Covenant which is the reality or substance of the person of Christ as the indwelling life within us since this is the eternal plan, purpose and will of God. The Bible thus presents two realms, one of death and the other of life, through the old and the New Covenant, with two different types of relationships. God did not improve or modify the first man Adam on the Cross but crucified Adam in Christ and this is known as the judgement where Adam has been separated from Christ. This reality has to be inworked within the soul of every human being, for the transition from the natural and the earthly into the heavenly and the spiritual and thus from the living soul Adam to the life-giving Spirit Christ. This book unfolds the truth that Christianity is neither a religion nor an organisation but a true Christian is characterised by the resurrected life of Christ dwelling within him. This realisation enables him to produce the fruit, which is the increase of Christ and thereby achieve the harvest of a people living by the life of Christ. In this way, true salvation, defined as the fullness of Christ in the human soul becomes a reality, proclaiming to the world that the evidence of salvation is, “It is not I who live but Christ who lives in me.”

Christians often focus on the date we were "born again" and the day we will be with Jesus in Heaven, neglecting life with Jesus now. We pray for Jesus to be manifested at His second coming, but the apostle Paul also prayed the "life of Jesus would be manifested in our mortal bodies" (2 Corinthians 4:10-11). "For of His fullness we have all received" (John 1:16). The message of Jesus we will examine begins in John 14 at the Last Supper, just after Judas left to betray Jesus, concluding at the end of John 17, where Jesus prays we will be perfected by unity with Him. Previously Jesus said we must be perfect. Now He introduces the New Covenant, the way of perfection-living by the life of our very significant Other - our indwelling Lord.

From Romans to the seven epistles in the book of Revelation, the life-giving Spirit, spoken of in 1 Corinthians 15:45, is the general subject of all the New Testament Epistles. In the Gospels the Lord Jesus is presented as the Word who became flesh, while in the Epistles He is presented as the One who became the life-giving Spirit in resurrection for us to receive, experience, and enjoy. In The Spirit in the Epistles Witness Lee speaks of the believers being one spirit with the Lord, that is, of the mingling of the divine Spirit with our regenerated human spirit. Since the Spirit is the essence of the revelation in the Epistles, Witness Lee also emphasizes our practical need to take Christ as life by turning to the indwelling Spirit, by setting our mind on the spirit, and by living and walking in the spirit that we may live in the Lord, who is the Spirit.

This study comes out of over forty years of preaching and teaching from Paul's Book of Romans.Ponder These Questions In Your Heart.As a Christian, do you sometimes feel incomplete, insufficient, insignificant, unworthy and unable to live as you desire? At your best do you feel you are a failure and at your worse you are just no good? Do you feel that the things you do are never satisfying to you and are unworthy of God's approval? Do you sometimes feel the person you are as a husband, wife, mother, father, neighbor, Christian worker is never good enough? Your heart's cry is, "Oh, I wish I could be a better husband, wife, parent, Christian." Are you at times able to say, "I do know some victory, some joy, some peace, but my defeats and despairs are greater than I believe they ought to be? Have you tried and tried but you are always failing, ending up empty? You may at times feel like the fellow who said, "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired." If these express your feeling, then you know what Paul was feeling when he said, "Who can deliver me from this death" (Romans 7:25).If your answer to these question is Yes, this study is especially for you.

You’re doing all the things a Christian should do. But is Christ living in you? Has He swept and cleared out every cobweb in your life? Or are you tightly gripping the broom yourself? Does His spirit motivate your every thought and action? Or is your Christian walk just a performance, an act that masks the emptiness inside? He’s called us to more than a game of charades. He’s invited us to taste the joy of the Christ-filled life. You’re already in Christ; now let Him be in you. It’s time for The Master’s Indwelling.

“So that in everything He might have the supremacy.” —Colossians 1:18 Christians have made the gospel about so many things—things other than Christ. Religious concepts, ideas, doctrines, strategies, methods, techniques, formulas, "its" and "things" have all eclipsed the beauty, the glory, and the reality of the Lord Jesus Himself. On the whole, Christians today are starved for a real experience of the living Christ. We know a lot about our Lord, but we don't know Him very well. We know a lot about trying to be like Jesus, but very little about living by His indwelling life. JESUS MANIFESTO presents a fresh unveiling of Jesus as not only Savior and Lord, but as so much more. It is a prophetic call to restore the supremacy and sovereignty of Christ in a world—and a church—that has lost sight of Him. Every revival and restoration in the church has been a rediscovery of some aspect of Christ in the process of answering the ultimate question that Jesus put to His disciples: "Who do you say that I am?" Read this book and see your Lord like you've never seen Him before.
