Wow! Activating the Power of the Cross by Tony Evans is an incredible, must read book. I loved how Tony Evans related our Christian lives to appliances in our homes. Those electronic devices are not any good or useful until they are plugged into the power source. As a Christian, “no matter how hard you try and no matter how hard you work, you will have only wasted your time and your life if you do not live connected to the power of the cross of Jesus Christ.”
Too often the cross gets so watered down that it becomes nothing more than an icon or something you hang around your neck. According to Evans, Christians need to wake up and activate the power of the cross by not letting religion and a list of rules get in the way of your relationship with Christ. We are a new creation when we have Christ in our lives, but that doesn’t mean He is no longer necessary. In fact, we need to live in complete dependency of our power source, just like the electronic devices in your home.
This is a relatively short book that is easy to read, but packed with such a punch. I recommend that you get this book and make certain to activate the power of the cross in your own life.
