God indwelling man … is not something we aspire to or hope for – it is the reality of every Christian. To be a Christian means that the life of Jesus indwells your life via the Holy Spirit. Anything less is not Christian. And the indwelling life of Christ was one of Major Ian Thomas’s favorite subjects to talk about. In this episode of the Deeper Christian Podcast, we listen to a classic sermon by Major Ian Thomas called “Let God Be In You” – and if you grasp the reality of this message, it is guaranteed to change your life – for it is only when God (via the Holy Spirit) lives in our lives, do we find a Christianity that actually works.
