Identity Motivated Living™
is an expression that embodies the essence of the Christian life. Jesus Christ comes into us to dwell, creating in us new life, a new creation, and a new nature. Power wells up from this new nature, motivating us to good works out of love for God. Our new identity comes from the Father; we have Jesus living in us always; and the Holy Spirit empowers us to be more and more like Christ.
Jesus uses the term, “...I am,” to reference himself in John 8:58. Thus, the acronym I. M. Living refers to “Christ in us the hope of Glory.”
Dr. Maurice E. Wagner embraced this as a slogan for the unique concepts he discerned during his 60 years of ministry.

Emmanuel Means God With Us Personally
By Maurice E. Wagner, Th.M.,Ph.D.

“I will never leave you or forsake you” (Jos. 1:5 and Heb. 13:5) was Joshua’s undergirding courage to lead the Children of Israel to overcome the inhabitants of the Promised Land, for their “cup of iniquity” was full. It was God’s judgment of their sinful, idolatrous practices that they were destroyed.

This series of studies considers thirteen different life-situations in which we can count on God being with us. This book is intended to be comforting instruction to all who study its contents. As God was with Joshua to give him the skills of leadership of a nation, and of warriors, that he needed to fulfill God’s promise to Abraham, so He will be with us to accomplish His will. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:10).

God has redeemed us, brought us into Himself, into His Family of believers, so that we can fellowship with Him by faith in accomplishing the work He created us to do. No one can take our place, and He wants to use each one of His children!

You will find this book helpful in your walk with the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
