New (old) book

You will have become totally dependent upon the life of Christ within you, and never before will you have been so independent, so emancipated from the pressure of your circumstances, so released at last from that self-distrust which has made you at one moment an arrogant, loud-mouthed braggart, and the next moment the victim of your own self-pity—and, either way, always in bondage to the fear of other men’s opinons.—The Saving Life of Christ, pages 15-16

<idle musing>
Amen! We hang onto our "freedom" and enslave ourselves even further. Once we realize how totally dependent we are on Christ, we begin to experience true freedom.

It will be interesting to see how he develops this theme in the book...
