United At Every Moment
Unless I see myself as in Christ—as God knows me to be—then whenever inexplicably difficult and odd things happen I will wonder what's gone wrong and what I have to do to make things right. That means endless days of pressure. I'll see myself as separate from God, perhaps needing my inner battery charged up so I can then run off on my own to make things work right.
But I'm His vessel, and how things go around me are for the two of us, united forever, His life and ability at the ready. That’s how Christ is formed in me—it’s what I and others have called The Immanuel Agenda. That's the crucified and Spirit-filled life, and that's for me.
And if you're a Christian, it's for you. . .Hooray!
