Why You Need Christ Every Day

“[The Lord is the God] who sent his Son to become God-with-us and . . . sent his Spirit to become God-within-us”–Henri Nouwen.

“I have found that I experience sustained peace and joy in direct proportion to the degree that I am in love with Jesus. When the living Christ is just part of my life rather than the focus of my life, the spokes detach from the hub and the wheel breaks down. When I walk with Jesus through the day, worshiping him and thanking him and asking for his wisdom and depending on his power, I experience a centeredness and deep delight that words cannot express”–Jim Denison.

“In our Lord’s life there was none of the press and rush of tremendous activity that we regard so highly, and the disciple is to be as his Master. The central thing about the kingdom of Jesus Christ is a personal relationship to himself, not public usefulness to men”–Oswald Chambers.

“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and truth”–John 4:23-24.

“You’ll find no greater joy, peace, or purpose than in serving Jesus alone. There is no greater life than one lived in full devotion to the King of all the earth”–Craig Denison.

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us–for it is written, ‘Cursed be every one who hangs on a tree’–that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith”–Galatians 3:14.

    Colossians 3:16-18Amplified Bible (AMP)

    16 Let the [spoken] word of Christ have its home within you [dwelling in your heart and mind—permeating every aspect of your being] as you teach [spiritual things] and admonish and train one another with all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus [and in dependence on Him], giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

    The quote from Oswald Chambers, “In our Lord’s life there was none of the press and rush of tremendous activity that we regard so highly”. The great missionary passed in 1917 having probably never had a meeting interrupted by a phone call. How much more we can value “the press and rush of tremendous activity today. God help us.
