Product Description

Wouldn't it be great if we could actually do what Jesus would do? Yet, the simple fact of the matter is this: only Jesus can do what Jesus would do. He cannot be imitated separate from imparting His life to us, and He will not be imitated unless we rely completely upon Him to express that imparted life through us. In Romans 5:12 through Romans 8:39 Paul explains the wonderful truth of the exchanged life. Our focus is misplace when we try to be like Jesus for no matter how hard we try we will never be able to live our lives like Jesus. It is an exercise in futility that causes constant frustration and always winds up with the same result--failure. By way of contrast, Jesus has no problem living His life, and He has offered to live His life through us, but we will never afford Him the chance so long as we insist on trying to live it on our own. If only Jesus can do what Jesus would do, I must trust Jesus to express Himself through me. The bottom line is that Jesus will never become the expression of His life through me if I continue to rely on my impression of His life.
