Life in Christ: A Guide for Daily Living
Paperback – Nov 15 2003 by John Stott (Author)
The theme of this work is that Jesus Christ is the centre of Christianity, and that therefore both the Christian faith and the Christian life, if they are to be authentic, must be focused on Christ.
Readers will come to know Christ more intimately and appreciate his glory as they understand their relationship to him. In vivid detail, Stott explains how Christians are to live life through, on, in, under, with, unto, for, and like Christ. Enhanced by 14 classical artworks (four by Rembrandt), this text makes a lovely and meaningful gift for readers of John Stott, art aficionados, and those who long to know more of the Savior.
From the Back Cover
What does it mean to have a faith that is centered on Jesus Christ? What does a life focused on him look like?
Life in Christ explores prepositional phrases in the New Testament that speak of our position in Christ-passages such as ìthrough Christ our mediator,î ìon Christ our foundation,î ìunder Christ our Lord,î ìlike Christ our model,î and others. Looking at these ìinsignificant little wordsî reveals great truths about our relationship to Jesus.
Anyone looking for profound yet practical help for daily life will find inspiration in this book. John Stott draws from his wealth of experience and his scholarly knowledge of Scripture to present the different aspects of Christís power in the Christianís life.
To be a Christian is to live our life through, on, in, under, unto, for, and like Jesus Christ, and Christ then becomes the center of our life.
