In His Presence: If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness (Romans 8:10).
God’s goal for His people is Christlikeness, conforming them to the character of Christ. But many of us think, “I read the Bible, I pray, I go to church, but I’m not really transformed to be like Christ from the inside out. What’s wrong with me?”
One Minute Please
We have a capacity problem—sin has killed our bodies, and we aren’t capable of helping ourselves.
Rather than viewing the cross as an historical event that will take us to heaven, we ought to view it as a current event containing everything we need to bring heaven to bear on earth.
In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans carefully and pastorally applies the cross of Christ to life today. In three parts, he considers:
• What makes Christ unique; how Old Testament prophecy and typology looked ahead to Him; and how His humiliation, death and resurrection sets Him apart as Lord
• What was accomplished on the cross for us, how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives, and how it's a source of authority for us
• What is the power of the cross and the stability it provides, deliverance it offers, the power of its ongoing remembrance, and more
The cross is the hinge of history. How much more, then, is it the hinge of your life? It gained more for you than you may realize; do not make the grave error of overlooking it. As a thank you for your gift of any amount, we’ll get this brand new book, The Power of the Cross, out to you right away.
