Christus Victor – Part II


Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me.”

John 15:4

I am making my home in Christ assessment question

When Dallas Willard was asked how he measures spiritual growth. Willard replied, “I ask

  • Am I growing more or less easily irritated these days?
  • Am I growing more or less loving these days?

When I am in tune with the spirit, my soul doesn’t sense as much irritation, and when I am criticized, I am not feeling discouraged. If peace is growing in me, I am less easily discouraged. If love is growing in me, I am less easily irritated.

How would you answer these questions?
