Union

by Norman P. Grubb

Christ liveth in me. I saw something there. I don’t know if you have. I saw that it means that Christ doesn’t live my life. He lives His own life! I saw a big difference there. If Christ lives in me, He isn’t living my wretched little bit of life, He’s living His life. I saw the escape there from the great snare in many of our lives which ties us up in lack of power and lack of all sorts of things. Why? Because we seek abstraction, we seek a thing called life, a thing called power, a thing called light, a thing called meekness, a thing called anything you like, a thing called faith. But there are no abstractions. They are put like that in the Bible for our intelligence’s sake to explain what things are.
