Publisher's Description

Every solution to every problem known to the human race lives in you.

Inside each of us is a longing for a deeper truth, a deeper meaning. For centuries humanity has been searching every corner of our earth, plumbing the mysteries of the human mind and heart, in hopes of satisfying this quest of our souls.

What we've failed to realize is that the greatest Truth is revealed in the greatest mystery in the universe: Christ lives in you. It isn't your destiny to live a life that is merely "getting by" or riddled with shame and fear. The ultimate price was paid for the ultimate temple--you. Not just for eternity's sake but for the sake of the world.

In this revolutionary new book, Eric Johnson, senior leader and pastor of Bethel Church, helps you understand that the vast, omniscient, benevolent God of the universe trusts you! And when His image begins to define you, you'll find your life becoming passionate, powerful and purposeful.
Discover who you really are. Trust the God who makes you worthy. And change the world.

    This is a well-written, comprehensive book that reminds Christians in many ways how, when we live a righteous life, we are living with Christ within us and sharing His Love. It may take readers a while to read, because there are so many examples of how Jesus walks with us, how God loves us and works through us. Readers will identify with some more than others, due to individual experience.

    There are warnings included. Johnson points out that sadly, as people grow more righteous about their relationships with God, they may seek to become more distant from others, citing on faith differences rather than seeking common ground and sharing love. Christians will learn that solutions to all possible problems live inside us, so we must discover the Christ within us.

    God trusts us more than we trust ourselves because His light lives within us and He knows better than we how important it is for us to trust ourselves and shine the light where He wants it. Jesus spent much of His time with ordinary people; sinners. He knows that Light works best in the dark. We, too, can learn to light our paths.

    Each reader may take away slightly different concepts, but the truth of forgiveness and salvation shine throughout this book. Christians can gain confidence and shake off fear once we believe that Gods love is unconditional and endless. He has no need to control us, because control is based in fear and He has none. Neither, then, should we.

    Readers will want to re-read sections of this book, taking their time to absorb the concepts presented. Its really all about love.

    I was given a free copy of this book by Chosen, a division of Baker Publishing, in return for an honest review. I highly recommend it for those seeking a closer walk with Christ.

    This new release by Eric B. Johnson gives his instruction for living out the reality that Christ is in you, as a believer, and you (we, us, me) should live like it. His central theme is that God trusts you more than you trust yourself.

    I will tell you right up front, I see good ideas in this book about living like you know that Christ is in you and claiming the power of that knowledge, but I do not wholly subscribe to the author's thought process behind that fact. This work is well written. It is easy to read and is not a long book. All good things for a reader who has a TBR stack and has this title in that pile. My review of the book based on those things alone would be four to five stars.

    I will give you my thoughts on the subject matter and let you make your own decision about reading "Christ in You" which is what I always attempt to do on this blog.

    Mr. Johnson begins his introduction with the story of his own "rewiring" by God in a few areas of his life. This took place over a period of about ten years. He relates that it did not happen overnight but through a series of small instances such as a scripture that stood out to him, or a situation that he was in or an experience that he had. This rewiring is what led to his writing of this book. He states our need to love humanity as Christ did, not just as an obligatory action that we choose because the Bible instructs us to love others. He states, "True love is not obligatory, rather, it comes from a deep place in your heart." Love for humanity does not always come from a deep place in your heart. Love for humanity, also known as having a burden for the lost, comes from God who plants that burden in your heart when you live from the guidance of the Holy Spirit, who indwells believers. I say that to say this; many times feeling follows action. If we act out the love we know God wants us to have for our fellow human beings, He blesses that effort and in that blessing comes a genuine love for all human beings as He created us in His image. That is the love of God, perfected in His children.

    The section on The Intent of Grace stresses the importance of our living not as "sinners saved by grace" which is a common thought, but to live as saved people, no longer sinners. Citing I Tim. I: 8-13, he states (pp. 96) that "...I believe what Paul is saying is "I was a chief sinner, but because of Christ's death and resurrection, I am now a righteous person through Him." Our righteousness is a work in progress, daily striving to attain that perfection in Christ. Becoming a Christian does not cause God to instantly make us righteous.

    Mr. Johnson has a section in this work entitled "Co-Laboring with God" which is a good idea and a good goal. He states (pp.116) "It is fun to see how God allows the ideas of His people to become part of His plan." God does not take your ideas and make them part of His plan. His plan was put in place before the creation of man. The author quotes Ephesians 2:1-10 which says "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." I am not seeing our ideas in that. I do see God calling us to join Him where He is and do the works that He has prepared beforehand because they are the best work we can do.

    I am disappointed that this book only talks about being put on earth to do good. We were first put here to be companions to God. We blew that but our loving Heavenly Father put a plan in place for us to be able to have that companionship with Him once again. Our charge is found in Matthew 28:19-20. Reaching out to others with the love of God by serving the unlovely and sinners such as ourselves is what brings us the reality that Christ lives in us and that God trusts us more than we trust ourselves.

    These points I have mentioned are but a few from the book that stood out to me as I read.

    I give "Christ In You" three stars. It is worth the cover price but must be read with discernment and an eye to scripture.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Chosen, for the purposes of review. These words are my opinion.

    Johnson believes it is God's design that Christians be the boldest, most confident people on the planet. That means Christians must fully know who they are and whom they serve. He has written this book with the desire that readers would become more aware of the depth and width of what Christ in you can mean.

    Johnson emphasizes what Christians can do when they know who they are. He writes about God's heart for humanity. He advocates all laws and guidelines arise from the core value of helping people realize they were created in God's image, with the capacity to do good. He envisions a prison system and an educational system designed to make individuals aware of who God created them to be. He writes of the goodness of man, showing the goodness of God, will lead men to repentance. I firmly believe that when a person is confronted with the goodness of God, the natural response is to repent and ultimately change the direction of his or her life.

    Johnson encourages persistence. He helps us distinguish confidence from arrogance. He also helps us identify the fear of man and gives steps to overcome it.

    I would have liked more on what Christ in you actually means to the believer, rather than such an emphasis on what the believer can accomplish living in that identity. Also, as a reformed believer, I felt Johnson overlooked the results of the Fall. He emphasizes man as created in God's image and man's capacity to do good. He does not write about man being radically tainted by sin. Nor does he write about the holiness of God, just about God being good.

    This is a relatively short book emphasizing what believers can do when they understand that Christ is in them.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
