union

As a life, Christianity may be defined as the union of the soul with Christ" -George P. Pardington, The Crisis of the Deeper Life (pg 5)

Doug,

I know no one better than Norman Grubb to explain what union with Christ means.

When placed against the backdrop of Grubb's life his words take on additional meaning. What he and others accomplished through the Worldwide Evangelization Crusade that C.T. Studd founded is a living example of what Christ can continue to accomplish through very human vessels.

When I read his last major book Yes, I Am and the Holy Spirit inwardly confirmed the words Grubb wrote I was shocked. It was as if He was saying, "This is the way. Walk in it." My life has never been the same. I finally found rest for my soul and now all my activity is the Lord Jesus in action.

If you're interested, the full text of Grubb's book Yes, I Am is available online at:

And his autobiography is also available online at:

God bless.
