Book Summary of Union With Christ by Rankin Wilbourne


“Jesus Christ is the head of the church. Our Head has called us to follow him. Where we do not, we are very sick.” (p. 183)

Sadly, the body of Christ has often failed to follow Him closely. We talk of spiritual things, speak of holy goals and aspirations, articulate our desire to serve God and make Him known, yet we allow His Word to be twisted and His sheep trampled.

Power abuse is rife in culture. Sadly, the church is no different.

To be human is to be powerful. We influence others through strength, knowledge, word, and deed. To be human is also to be vulnerable. Any relationship in which we find ourselves has this dynamic at work.

In the church, power and vulnerability are especially pronounced. We must take care. The Lord Jesus as our Shepherd would have us follow Him and find our power redeemed and exercised for the protection and flourishing of His precious sheep.

This is a message we desperately need to heed. So come, and see your own power redeemed by the One who gave it to you for His good purposes.
