The Pretend Christian Life
The following below statement by Major Ian Thomas describes accurately what The Pretend Christian Life (without Jesus as the origin) is. It is by far the most accurate explanation I have ever heard.
“There are those who have a life they never live. They have come to Christ and thanked Him only for what He did, but do not live in the power of who He is. Between the Jesus who “was” and the Jesus who “will be” they live in a spiritual vacuum, trying with no little zeal to live for Christ a life that only He can live in and through them, perpetually begging for what in Him they already have!” (Major Ian Thomas)
I ask you to reread this quote and reflect on it often.
Too many people (including many Christians) are living The Pretend Christian Life in their own self-efforts. Instead, Jesus is knocking on the door to be released so the Divine Life and Power of God can be released through. Jesus wants Christians to stop “perpetually begging for what in Him they already have.”
For it can only be JESUS IN YOU living His life through you.
Will you release the CHRIST IN YOU so the Divine Life and Love and Power of God can flow from you to a hurting, sin-sick world?
