The Christ Saturated Life
“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.” (Galatians 2:20, NASB) According to this verse, I am crucified, dead. I no longer live, yet Christ lives in me. What does that look like? What does that even mean?
There must be practical implications for the man or woman who is so saturated with the living Christ that there is room within for nothing else. What if my mind is truly one with the mind of Jesus, if I am so filled with the heart and mind of Christ that he radiates through my pores? What if I live a Christ Saturated Life similar to the way Jesus lived a Father Saturated Life? It is such saturation that enabled Jesus to say, “I and my Father are one, one essence, one thing.” Such a statement can be made only by a Father saturated man. We strive to be Christ saturated in the same way Jesus is Father saturated.
To assist us in that objective, this book employs an intentional Christ focus, because we are looking at a Christ Saturated Life rather than a church saturated life, a Bible saturated life, or a tradition saturated life. We want to look directly at Jesus, to contemplate his heart, to learn that for which he is passionate, to love what he loves, to hear the words from his lips and to become what we see reflected in Christ Jesus.
