Rather than the Gospel being about our fulfillment, Pastor Dwight Edwards knows that the Gospel is all about God's glory. He also knows that the Gospel not only changes our legal position before God but also who we actually are. Edwards "thought my job as a pastor was to persuade people to do what they really didn't want to do and act like people they really weren't. But my calling is to tell them what God has done, stir up their holy appetites, provide some basic direction and turn 'em loose." Revolution Within does just that! In this book, you'll discover your God-given design as a Christian. You'll be motivated to godly living, not because you should or want to, but because God has already changed your heart. In recognizing your new purity, new identity, new disposition, and new power, you'll be empowered to enjoy "new intimacy with God, new liberty in daily living, a new community with other believers, and a new ministry through the Spirit."

"One of the fundamental misunderstandings the first-century world had in regard to Jesus was that He had come to stir up an outward, political revolution. Dwight Edwards reminds us in his powerful book that the revolution, like the kingdom, is essentially within--that Jesus is still a King whose kingdom is the heart.” --Michael Card, recording artist and author of A Violent Grace
What Actually Happened When You Came to Christ?
Because of what God has done for every believer, you actually possess outlandish treasures you may never have dreamed existed. God has made "New Covenant" promises to each of us. And in fulfillment of those promises, He has placed within every believer four revolutionary provisions: a new purity, a new disposition, a new identity, and a new power.
These lavish supernatural resources permanently reside within your soul right now--ready for release every day of your life on earth! Revolution Within shows what these four provisions really are and how to release them, so you can experience all the best God has for you. And when you do, you fulfill your God-given purpose in life. Because God doesn’t want us just to be spiritually whole but to be spiritually provocative. As you tap into this vibrant eternal reality, you’ll experience fresh intimacy with God, new liberty, a deepened sense of community with other believers, and a new capacity for ministry. And through it all you’ll grow in your passion for what God Himself is most passionate about: His glory.
