Hear what others are saying about Cru.
At the conclusion of one of my lectures in Portland, Oregon, a man came rushing down the aisle. "This is the greatest thing I have ever heard in my life!" he began. "Today I have been liberated!"
This man was a prosperous business executive who sat on twelve boards of various Christian organizations. He exclaimed, "I have been trying to serve God so diligently that I practically ignored my business and my family. I have been trying to serve God in the energy of the flesh. I understand now why I have been so miserable."
We all want to live the supernatural life. We desire to think supernaturally, to plan supernaturally, to pray supernaturally, to love supernaturally, and to let our lives in every way be living proof of the supernatural power of God. Why, then, do we too often fail? Why do we keep returning to the futile limitations of the sinful nature?
The answer is in our refusal to yield to the person and filling of the Holy Spirit. Instead, we are filled with worldliness which I believe is at the root of virtually all Christian failure. It is absolutely essential that we learn to let God live supernaturally within us.
No wonder so many have come to me over the years, expressing amazement at how different their lives became with this discovery.
No more prolonged spiritual emptiness! No more of the frustration of empty religion! No more of the despair of trying to live the Christian life through self-effort.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Have you been liberated? Do you experience joy, or is each a day a burden? Are you internally at peace, or in turmoil? The key to living the Christian life is not mere moral discipline. It is to allow God's Spirit to live through you, each and every moment.
