The Normal Christian Life (part 1 of 3)

The normal Christian Life isn’t the norm for many Christians. The key to living the victorious Christian life is not a new spin on the old, old story; it’s normal Christianity. It’s as old as the New Testament. Experiencing normal Christianity through the week yields such a sweet, intimate, obedient relationship with God that we don’t attend the worship service to get recharged; we attend the services to discharge our worship and praise to the Lord because we’re over flowing with love and gratitude (Psalm 23:5).

By letting Christ express His life through us on a moment-by-moment basis, we experience the overcoming, abundant life that Jesus spoke of (John 10:10). Many Christians have taken the independent, do-it-yourself exit off God’s “freeway.” Cordless Christianity explains why many Christians experience unexciting or perhaps defeated lives. It explains everything from the so-called male mid-life crisis to depression, sheer boredom to anxiety attacks, passivity to dominance, abrasiveness to “wimping out,” the workaholic to the sofa spud, legalism to hedonism, perfectionism to slovenliness, etc. These are all manifestations of living in the power of human flesh. Jesus Christ is the only One who ever lived the Christian life, and I have found that by letting Him express His life through us, by faith, we experience the Christian life as God intends.
