By W. Ian ThomasTo help us better understand and incorporate victorious Christian living into our lives, Major W. Ian Thomas combines in one volume The Saving Life of Christ, which examines the implications of Christ’s life and death, and The Mystery of Godliness, an exploration of the fact that godliness is a mystery.”God did not die just to save us from the consequences of a bad past or past failure, but to ‘clear the decks’ for divine action in our lives.” The Saving Life of Christ contains a warning that our response to Jesus Christ will determine our condition “in the sights of God … redeemed or condemned.” The Mystery of Godliness offers old and new considerations about the nature of godliness in thought-provoking discussions such as “How to Do the Impossible” and “How Much are You Worth?”

88605: Abide in Christ Abide in Christ
By Andrew MurrayInstead of accepting the invitation to enter God’s throne room, many Christians stand alone outside the door, uncertain and ashamed. Christ beckons them to His banqueting table and offers them a room in His house, but they foolishly give up the glory of the life He has offered. They come to Jesus as Redeemer but never go beyond the doorway to abide in Him and experience the unspeakable joy of dwelling with the King of Kings. Andrew Murray knew what it meant to be continually in the Father’s presence. Read these thirty-one heart-searching readings and learn how to live daily in closer communion and fellowship with Him. Accept God’s invitation and live in His blessing and glory instead of shuffling your feet at the gate.

    Your breakdown outline and post are quite insightful I’m reading Jesus manifesto also using audible.com and I’ve read some by watchman nee. Often interpretation by others really helps because the flesh is so strong and these books by old elder Jesus people like bob George hurt our pride and seem like strange new traditions. Yet Jesus is our Christianity. Wow I did really like your post because I’m now able to speak to it. Jesus is our first And last! CHRIST IN US!
