by Terry Wardle
The seed of Christ's nature is present within every believer. We have the potential to become more and more like Jesus.
Terry Wardle presents compelling evidence that countless churches are made up of, and in many cases even led by, men and women who seem perpetually caught in spiritual infancy. What does it really mean to be Christlike? Christians today are struggling with immaturity because they do not know the answer to that question.
This book surveys the life of Jesus to identify eight characteristics of Christ that are to be nourished and nurtured by the Holy Spirit in the believer's life. Being transformed into the likeness of Christ is the true mark of spiritual maturity. This book teaches that every believer: Is made for intimacy with the Father; Can be secure in their identity as a child of God; Can walk in spiritual power; Can exercise spiritual authority in ministry; Can be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
