Actually in Us

More thought on yesterday’s post –

“When God forgives us for violating His design, He pours His life into us; and that restores our capacity to connect, first with Him, then with others. He makes us alive with the actual life of Christ. The energy with which Jesus heard and obeyed the Father, the impulses behind everything He did – His tenderness with the lame man, His indignation with the moneychangers, His patience with Philip, His red-hot scorn for the Pharisees, His love for children, His resolve to endure injustice without complaint – are in us. The impulses that energized Jesus’ life on earth are actually in us. That’s part of what it means to be alive in Christ.” – Larry Crabb

What he said.
