The central theme in Christ Formed in You is that it is God's purpose to change us by progressively making us more like Jesus, and that this happens only as we understand and apply the gospel to our lives. The author opens up the Scripture to show that it is the gospel which is the key to God's transforming us; it is the very foundation of personal change. He then outlines the pattern of this change: our death to sin, growth in grace through the power of the Spirit, and joyful pursuit of holiness. Finally, he explores with us the means of this personal change - the spiritual disciplines, suffering, and personal relationships in the body of Christ. This book will open up to you the beauty and transforming power of the gospel in your life.
