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.

God's Goal for Every Believer,
By Maurice E. Wagner, Th.M.,Ph.D.

This book defines Christlikeness thirteen different ways:

1- Reversing Priorities
2- Being grateful to God
3- Walking in fellowship w/ God
4- Praying the right way
5- Being “Slow to anger”
6- Accepting rejection
7- Overcoming doubts
8- Overcoming anxiety
9- Overcoming temptation
10- Being always truthful
11- Being consistently gentle
12- Means perseverance
13- Means truly loving others

God clearly tells us, Romans 8:29, that we who receive Christ are predestined to become like His beloved Son, and In Hebrews 12:7-11, He tells us that He will use trials and hardships as His shaping tools to perfect the image of Christ in us.

I believe you will be thankful as you study this book that God cares enough for you to mold you into the image of His Son so you will feel at home in His heaven and be a good witness for Him while on earth.
