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.
Finding Faith in Slow Motion.
Faith is neither static nor instantaneous. It is not something we stumble upon and instantly understand. Neither is it a monolithic, one-dimensional, singular entity that has but one face, one color, one fragrance. It is many-faceted, multi-dimensional, and appears differently depending on one's angle to the Son.
In Finding Faith in Slow Motion, Gray examines faith from myriad angles and through gut-wrenching life experiences, as he asks regarding faith, "What is that stuff?" Spanning the emotional gamut from laughter to tears, Gray challenges us to define our faith and redefine it, to look at it from a multitude of perspectives and define it again. The writing is intentionally evocative and playful, offering the reader the ability to identify with Gray as he wrestles with the weighty subject matter of finding faith.
