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.

Overcome Anger
The Impulsive Saboteur of Godliness
By Maurice E. Wagner, Th.M.,Ph.D.

These 13 lessons describe what anger is, how it is like a chameleon changing color according to how it can master the foe, what it does to others and what it does to ourselves. The latter part of the lessons discuss how to overcome anger in its various forms. The Bible clearly forbids Christians from allowing any amount of anger in their behavior or feelings. Anger is an emotion of independence from all authority, and thus it robs us of our submissive relationship with the living God, our redeemer. Instead of having faith in God, we demonstrate faith in ourselves, whether justified or not. Anger is the opposite of love, of mercy, or justice, or humility, It is the opposite of thanksgiving, humility, and submission.

This is one of the most popular little books of lessons I have ever written. I believe you will find it very informative.
