Christ Within Us

“Unhappily in our day the Christian religion is all too often reduced to a performance to please an external God, while to the early Christians it was plainly the invasion of their lives by a new quality or life – nothing less than the life of God Himself.

I believe this lack of faith in God-within-us is largely unconscious; for while we should be the first to recognize that lack of faith on man’s part inhibited even the powers of Christ Himself, yet I do not think we realize that this same lack of a faith in Christ-within-us prevents the operation of His power, and our proper development as sons of God.

There is far too … little quiet confidence in the Christ within us.”

J.B. Phillips in Making Men Whole, 1953 p.51
