Victor Paul Wierwille was a Bible scholar and teacher for over four decades.
By means of Dr. Wierwille's dynamic teaching of the accuracy and integrity of God's Word, foundational class and advanced class graduates of Power for Abundant Living have learned that the one great requirement for every student of the Bible is to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Thus, his presentation of the Word of God was designed for students who desire the in-depth-accuracy of God’s Word.
In his many years of research, Dr. Wierwille studied with such men as Karl Barth, E. Stanley Jones, Glenn Clark, Bishop K.C. Pillai, and George M. Lamsa. His formal training included Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Theology degrees from Mission House (Lakeland) College and Seminary. He studied at the University of Chicago and at Princeton Theological Seminary from which he received a Master of Theology degree in Practical Theology. Later he completed his work for the Doctor of Theology degree.
Dr. Wierwille taught the first class on Power for Abundant Living in 1953.
Books by Dr. Wierwille include: Are the Dead Alive Now? published in 1971; Receiving the Holy Spirit Today published in 1972; five volumes of Studies in Abundant Living— The Bible Tells Me So (1971), The New, Dynamic Church (1971), The Word's Way (1971), God's Magnified Word (1977), Order My Steps in Thy Word (1985); Jesus Christ Is Not God (1975); Jesus Christ Our Passover (1980); and Jesus Christ Our Promised Seed (1982).
Dr. Wierwille researched God's Word, taught, wrote, and traveled worldwide, holding forth the accuracy of God's "wonderful, matchless" Word.

On October the second 19 142 began in my life, a series of years that really literally changed my whole attitude. And my old ministry. There are many of you in here tonight who have known me, since I was a boy. There are many of you in here tonight, or at least some of you in here tonight, who are born and raised in the same community in which I was born and raised. You people know that I attended the same colleagues, the same seminary that many of my other brethren in the ministry attended. And I believe that you all realize that our family was born and raised in the church. And I do not recall and I remember a day in my life, when we were not in the church. And I believe that many times people feel that I am now out of the church. I am not out of the church, I'm more in the church than I've ever been in my life before. But the church that I'm in, is not one of any particular denomination or a brand. It is the church of the great accuracy of God's word of men and women who are born again of God's Spirit filled with a power of the Holy Spirit. And the Bible says that is the church. Whether you belong to a denomination or not, is relatively insignificant. But whether you belong to Jesus is vitally important. And so no matter what our backgrounds may be, the important thing is to tap three sources for the more abundant life. And I'm sure that all of you who know me, all through these many, many years, realize that this ministry has been a constant growth. I think you all realize that in the years that I spent in bandwidth, and we have people in here, from my church in bandwidth of those many, many years, that are here in the auditorium with us again, tonight, almost come every Sunday night, to be a part of this ministry still joined with us, I think you realize that when we first began in the accuracy of the research or the word, we never realized how great it was, nor where it would take us. I am not here tonight, just by accident. I am here because God has his hand, on my life and upon our ministry. And he brought us around to a greater understanding of God's word, that we could be a great help to any of God's people in any denomination or outside of it, who really wanted to have an accurate knowledge of God's Word. And so I'm truly grateful on this anniversary Sunday night. For the privilege that I've had down through the years, to minister to wonderful people like those of you gathered here tonight, I believe God has given to me, the most wonderful children, young people and adults, that any man has ministered the accuracy of God's word to at any time in the history of our civilization. So I'm deeply grateful for you wonderful people, and all of the rest of our people that are at various nations and states across the union, various nations across the countries of the world. I believe that in 19 142, because God had his hand on my life, he took me from one stage to another, to make possible a growth. Because the things that I teach in the class today, just automatically, almost, these were things that gradually, God gave me understanding it. And as he gave me this understanding, I tried to share it, as God given me all of this at once. I do not believe that I could have stood the pressure, it was too much. So I'm a toward.
So I grew. And I never thought that God would ever have the type of ministry for us that we have had here these many years. I never dreamed that I would ever be responsible for all your ministry on an international basis. I never dreamed at that time that I would ever be outside of the confines of the organized denominational system of which I was a part and in which I had been born. But the leading of God of His word was so tremendous, that it has just literally changed our lives and made it a blessing to many, many, many 1000s More people than we could have ever been a blessing to Had we just continue to sit with the knowledge we had, originally from God's Word. And so tonight on this anniversary night, I was thinking of some of the things that we might be sharing with you. And I believe that greatest thing I know from God's Word is written in Colossians chapter two. Especially on this occasion, because God's word continues to unfold, it continues to become meaningful to us, as we work this word. And in Colossians chapter two, the apostle Paul wrote this word of God, when He said, For I would that she knew how great conflict, concern, deep, sympathetic identification I have for you, and for them that are allowed to see you. And as far as many as I've not seen my face in the place, that their hearts might be comforted, being nipped together in love, and unto all riches, have the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment of the mystery of God, and the father and of Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. And this I say, like any man, should be Guile you with flowery, enticing word. For dough, I'd be absent in the flesh, yet Am I with you in the spirit joying and beholding your order, and the steadfastness of your faith, your believing in Christ, the steadfastness thereof. Verse six, as he have therefore received Christ Jesus, the Lord, the rocky in him, rooted and built up in him, and established in the face, as he have been taught, abounding there in with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditional men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ, For in Him, verse nine, in Christ dwells all the fullness of the Godhead, bodily and verse head, and he are complete in Him, which is the head of all principality at avala pile, er complete in Him. When a person is born again of God's Spirit, filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. In other words, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, He says that you are complete in Him, then it is no longer a matter of my feeling. It's no longer a decision on my part, because he says that when we accepted Him, He made us complete. We are what he says we are, we have what he says we have. We will be what he says we will be. He said that you are complete. And effort complete. Ladies and gentlemen, Benoit. Complete. If we're lacking in one thing, we are not what complete. When we're complete, were absolutely complete. Otherwise, you're not complete. And one of the greatest revelations to the heart of any man or woman, when they are searching for the greatness of God's word, is when they come to the realization of knowing that they are complete in Christ, that there is nothing lacking, that it is not a question of going to God in prayer and asking God for this are begging him for that. Because he says, We are what complete in him. I am not complete within myself. My academic background does not make me complete, but I am complete in Him because He is completely within me. That's the greatness of it. And it is this that has so literally changed all of our lives. There was a time in many of our lives when we were wonderfully negative. We weren't perhaps completely negative. We just expected bad things to happen to us. Because Maggie muggins got the flu. Therefore, no matter what I would do, I was entitled to have the flu too. because so and so went down the drain. Consequently, I had to go down the drain, because so and so was poverty stricken, I had to be poverty stricken. All of these things were involved. And yet, even though we may or may have been in this negative environment, we have come out of it. And one of the greatest thrills is to come to the realization of the greatness of God's Word. And to start confessing what the Lord says, You never rise beyond your confession. If you confess negatives, you continue to be negative, because you're always in in what you're giving out. If you give out love, you're in it. If you give out picture in it, if you're out there to beat some man, some man's going to beat you worse, you beat that man, because it's a law. There is only one way where life where life will gel cohere and work with a mathematical exactness and a scientific precision. And that is, when men and women are climatized themselves to the accuracy of God's word, and walk in the light of it. It is wonderful. What happens to a person when you change your attitude, you know, in the book of Proverbs, I believe is that it says, A to seven, As a man thinketh in his heart, so is, as a man think you never rise beyond what we think. If we think negatively, we're going to manifest those negative, we the people of the way ministry have come to the integrity of God's Word. And we have seen the positiveness with which that word is set. And having seen that positiveness, we have begun to renew our minds. And we will say what the Word of God says, Even if we're in the soup, will say what the Word of God says, because that's the only way to get out of the soup. Even if it's Heinz, 57 varieties, or 62, because some of us have been in 67 different soups, I guess, Warren Heinz ever thought of, but we've come apart of that thing. Why? Because of the greatness and the accuracy of God's word. A number of years ago, one of the men here in the auditorium tonight, told me about an experiment that he had heard about. A couple of weeks ago, I read about this experiment, and I'm still wanting to get more details, not of the experiment, but I want to know the rest of the scientific men who were involved in. But there were five scientists involved in an experiment a very unique experiment. And one of those was Dr. And Jerome Stoll, SPO W E LL, they were engaged in a scientific experiment, using an electro magnetic transition type of instrument to test the brain waves of different individual the scale on this electromagnetic instrument, registering this Electromatic electro magnetic response, the scale was graduated to indicate both 500 positive and 500 Negative using this electromagnetic instrument.
They tested the power of a 50 kilowatt broadcast station, which had sent its message around the world or was able to send its message around the world. And they are calibrated it according to the response of this 50 kilowatt broadcast station. Then they started testing the brainwaves of individuals and their response in different situations. And they determined that they would endeavor to find the meanest man they could get ahold of. The one that use the name of God in vain for like a trooper, day and night, who didn't believe there's a God in heaven and much less care. When somebody talked about the Bible, he just cuss like so, they found such a one and they put the test to it. And they discovered when this man really became infuriated and angry when he swore when he cursed when he said all of just let left all of his anger out. That this electromagnetic machine indicated 500 negatives. Using the same machine, they put it on a person who had positive believing faith. One who believed in God, one who believed in prayer, one who refused to confess negative. And it indicated 500 Positive. And from this experiment, they concluded, that's a positive attitude of an individual had 55 times as much positive power to carry things around the world as the 50 Watt, or kilowatt broadcast station in the release of its signal. Can you imagine? While the 50 Watt kilowatt broadcast station would go around the Earth, once with its signal, this person who was positive and believe in prayer and God in the great accuracy of God's word, their brain wave transition went around 55 times. Why the Bible is the most scientifically accurate thing that's ever been written. That word of God works with a mathematical exactness and a scientific precision. What we confess we are, we will become because we already are that when we confess, though, when we confess, negatives will be in negative, but when we confess positives, will swing the pendulum of our life just as far on the other side, as any man can swing it when he's totally negative. Though each one of us, Dan right at the place, where we make up our mind, which way we are going to go. And he said that we are complete in him. Though suppose you do not feel complete the pose you feel lacking in some, as far as God is concerned, if you believe him, he has already in Christ made you how complete then you begin to confess that complete and when you start confessing completeness, then you will start sending out them yourself. Those type of waves or whatever you want to call it, that will bring to pass a deliverance in your life that will make you positive instead of negative. The book of Proverbs chapter chapter six, in verse two, and verse three.
Moffat has the most remarkable translation. Moffat says if you have snared yourself with your own words, if you have snared yourself with your own words, release yourself.
Isn't that something? If you have snared yourself with your own words, release yourself. While it is our own words that ensnare us. It is our own words that engulf us. It is our own words that Pamela sin. And Moffat says if you have been ensnared with your own words, release yourself. Now, that's wonderful, but it doesn't go quite far enough. We want to know, how can I release myself if I've been ensnared? Because that scripture just leaves you in that essence, in the same place where I used to be left when people say, Well ought to pray that I ought to do this. And I ought to do that, when they neglected to tell me how to pray to get my prayers answered, or how to believe or how to have faith. Though I'm concerned, if we have ensnared ourselves, that we will release ourselves, but the only way we can release ourselves is to come back to God's integrity and the greatness of His Word, and do it according to his Word for his word is his will. The word means what it says, and it says what it means. In second Corinthians chapter 10. This is some these things I'm going to be sharing now are some of the house whereby We are able to really manifest for the greatness of God's power, and allow the Word to live abundantly in our lives. In second Corinthians chapter 10, in verse four are the weapons of our warfare are not machine gun, atomic, other things, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, to the pulling down of what stronghold. And I believe all of us realize that when we were in the negatives, that these negatives were tremendous stronghold, they held us in case then slave, they held us to the end, where we were always less than what we really felt within ourselves, we'd like to be these were stronghold. But our weapons are able to pull down that stronghold by verse five, casting down imagination, the text gives it as false reasoning, where you worry or think you're right, but deep within yourself, you know, you're wrong, though, if we want to release ourselves. If we have been spared ourselves, we're going to have to cast down, get rid of those false reasoning. And the casting down is not something where you just take your just take something like this and say, Here, I'm going to just pass the down. The word casting down is, you take it like this, and with all your might, you thought, that's the word casting down. It doesn't just mean let it tumble. Right. And every high thing, the word high thing is false. Every false thing that exalteth itself, against are above the knowledge of God. And bringing into captivity. Every thought, every thought, to the obedience of Christ, bringing into captivity, every thought. Imagine that, making your mind tract with what you want to think. Your mind wants to think something else, you know, it goes way out left field and right field in between fields and everything else. You'd like to stay your mind on one thing, but by the time you get to thinking about it, it's over here and all over the place. Like a scatter gun. But bringing every thought into captivity, every thought into captivity, because you are the ruler of what you think you can make your mind think exactly what you want to think. Because this is exactly what you've been doing.
So we bring it under the knowledge of God's Word. And then we bring our mind in captivity under that knowledge. And we tell our mind, this is what the Word says. This is what it means. This is how you think whether you like it or whether you don't little oh boy, you think that one? Sure. Imagine getting that into captivity. How many people really have a disciplined mind? How many people can stay their mind on one thing and stay put for 30 seconds without having one other thought Vantur the mind. That something it can be done many times here in a summer in our camps, and especially the camp has a renewed mind. We endeavor to teach our people how to discipline their mind so they can stay their mind on one thing. We are able to do this by the principles that God has said in his word. I can take my mind and deliberately set it on one verse of scripture or one word in that scripture and absolutely have no other thoughts pass on over my mind. That one that I can do. I've done it 1000s of times. Maybe that's why I do it. But I will tell you something. I couldn't have done it the time and time if I hadn't started to do it the first time. And the first time I tried it, I was just like everybody else, I'd stay my mind for one second, then five seconds before now someplace else. So I bring myself back and say, listen, think about this, they put, talk to myself, you know, you can do that if you have breath like you other minor things, still talk to yourself, like keep telling the advanced class or the foundational place most intelligent conversation you ever had with yourself. No arguments, a lot of other things. But I just learned to concentrate, to bring my mind into captivity. If I weren't concerned about doing this as a businessman, I suppose I could do it. I I don't practice those principles in business like some of the rest of you men they do. But I practice this one I work toward. And they are literally I used to work this word from 830 in the morning to 233, four o'clock the next morning, day after day, week after week, month after month for more than 12 years. And this is why when I read Scripture like this, about if we have ensnared ourselves, we can release ourselves. If we can bring into captivity, every thought that thought of man has to be brought into captivity, and they have to be brought under the obedience of Christ. Not the obedience of VP Wierwille, or Dr. so and so or Reverend so and so our denomination solid self, it has to be brought under the obedience of oh, that's what it says that's what it is I read someplace this week that so many people? Well, this is this is how it was written, I guess that few people were willing to push the battle. But many people would like to wear the uniform. There are a few people who really take themselves by the depth of the neck and discipline their lives to start putting their minds. In captivity under the obedience of Christ. They'd like to wear the uniform of a Christian. They'd like to wear the uniform of this group or that. But if you're going to push the battle, you've got to take that wonderful word of God. And you have to discipline your mind to it. And make your mind say what the Word of God says else you'll never get out of this. In Colossians, 127 Tremendous proof. I'm speaking about being complete in Him, and how we can mark for day after day with the abundance that God supplied in Christ Jesus. I believe it's in Colossians 127, where it says Christ where Christ in you. The hope for glory is that if Christ in you the hope of glory, Christ, where can you hope ago, that's a tremendous proof. Imagine renewing your mind to this. When all you've ever heard down through the years, is be careful. Don't get too proud. Or you might get too religious or something. And you'll never know whether you're going to go to heaven until you die. And then maybe you'll find out the awful if you found out you went the other place then or some other thing comes up. But people imagine Nice, nice, nice vice. And I have more proof that Christ lived upon this earth and George Washington was president of the United States. And this Christ is real. Think of it Christ in you just placed in you. If Christ is in you, does that make you a somebody? It makes you what Christ is. And this is why no matter how defeated men and women have been, no matter how negative they've been, no matter what they've done, if they can tap the resources and that Christ is within them. It will make them somebody.
You don't get to be somebody by somebody coming along and signing a bill and getting a little more people out of poverty and a little more out of this and out of that.
You get to be someone when it's nice thing. And just imagine when it's nice to you what this does to a person I didn't write the book. I told him this in Columbus, again this week, you know it, same as I teach on Sunday night. That's just the piece. I told him this weekend, Thomas, if they didn't like what was written, they should complain to the manager. Right? If you don't like what the Word of God says, don't complain to me, I didn't write it. I have nothing to do with it. Just tell God you don't like it. I'm playing it. But I've learned long ago, going again this afternoon, for the most part, those boys are watched for a while had to play a certain game according to a certain rule book that some group a man, rather follow boy group. And yet, one time I saw one fella come up with a good left. And he thought that other fellow. He wrote his own rules. But the referee taught me, I think it was 15 yards they weren't, he was against the South. Bolat. You see, every other thing we do we operate by law and order, by principle. But somehow or other when it comes to Christianity, nobody ever sits down and lets that thing really, Jeff to think that Christianity has operate by law and order it to has a system. It too has a rulebook. And when people begin to operate that, according to God's word, don't get the results of it. He said this, it's based in you imagine what you can do this year of the 25th anniversary year, the way going out in your respective communities, in your churches, in your jobs, in the factories, in the home, in the schools, knowing that it's Christ in you, nice to you.
That's a tremendous proof. In Philippians, chapter two. Philippians chapter two. Verse 34, it is God which works in you both to will and to do His good place. It is God who is at work with you. Isn't that wonderful? Guys design you God is in Christ, Christ is in you. Remember what Jesus said before He ascended up into heaven. He said, the work that I do, he shall do also.
And greater works than I have done. He shall do when I go to my father, which is how we could not do the work he did. Unless he had given us the tools were with to do it. He has, he has had to equip us or we could not carry out the job, no more so than you could carry out the jobs, shops, factories and every other place unless you had been equipped to do it. Right. God has equipped us. God is in Christ, Christ in you, therefore it's God. God who is at work within you God's at work. Imagine that God at work within you to will and to do His good pleasure. It reminds me of John, you may want to look this up. I think it's in John, chapter one, the Gospel of John Chapter One. Verse 16. What I believe it says of his fullness. Have we all received? Is that what it says? I thought it was that John chapter one. Verse 16, isn't it of his fullness? Have we all received? Isn't that wonderful? For all that blesses the heart of a man or a woman to realize that of his fullness of His fullness? His fullness, not his emptiness, not his poverty, but as his fullness as we all receive. Look at Second Corinthians chapter two verse 14 Now thanks to the under Whoa, God, who always, always, well, always and always been always, without any exception, they cause it, God in Christ in you. Therefore, we're thankful under God who always causes us to be defeated, to be frustrated, to be full of fear, worry, anxiety, to be all negative, to just know that this is going to be the worst week we've ever had. The knows that the job just isn't going to go right tomorrow. No 1000 times No, thanks beyond the gods who always cause us us to try him. He always causes us to try him, not BTC, to not be downcast not to be frustrated not to be full of fan, he causes us to try him. And that must swing that needle over the imagine. There, you're confronted with a what people call? I don't know. I would call it an opportunity, whatever the opposite of that, for most people is a problem. Yeah, I couldn't even think of any more, I'm getting a cast down, you know, I'm renewing my mind. So here's an opportunity with with your concern of this week. Now remember what he said about it. remind him of that he said it. I didn't write the book, you didn't write it. It's not your word. It's his word. He wrote it. And if you're a Christian, you're confronted with an opportunity. So you say to the Father, well, what are you going to do about it? I'm ready to go, I'll do anything. I'm ready to move through the door is open, I'll go through. But remember, Father, you said that in Christ, you would always cause me to try him, this has to occur. And if you begin approaching an opportunity like that 99% of the so called problems with which you are confronted will absolutely evaporate. They'll be dissolved causes us to try them. The tremendous thing, I have not thought of this story for a long time. And most most people come to my classes because of the stories I tell. Everybody knows, I couldn't tell the same story the same way twice if I tried. And many times I forget in between what happens. But I remembered in this class, something that had happened a number of years ago. And I do not believe I'd hold it to any group for a long time. But I was coming from the airport in Chicago to meet the Pennsylvania train. At Englewood, I think it was rather than downtown because of the connections I've made for the plane. And so far just couldn't make it downtown, is that Englewood, the first stop south, thank you. And so when we were coming down, this was from the old field, not the new field, not the O'Hare field, the other one used to where all the big planes landed, forget some of you people, if you don't make it, you're not concerned where I came from, you're concerned where I'm going for my so on the way we had so few minutes to make it. But we had determined it could be done for this taxi cab driver was driving like Jehu getting me there. And he is the taxicab driver that you know, pass Peter on the way in, because he had scared more in the heaven and the other fella had preached him. We'd been in the service for 40 years, the Lord. Remember all that. And here we worried this traffic business. And I just knew, then knowledge wise, we could never make it. There just one automobile in front of us and another. And I thought of this versus among a few others. We always causes us to triumph. But I couldn't figure out how you could triumph without trial. That's not a moment. But that's a TR six. Because had we had one of those little triumphs, I figured we might have been able to scoot in a little bit. But I couldn't figure out a good trial with one of those. But he had said he always causes us to try them. They didn't say I even had to have a triumph to do it. And here were all these cars. And I was getting all excited inside because it was just like we were just going to miss it. You know how you feel if you miss your train, there's only one going for the next 24 hours, and so forth. The one the Scripture and some few others, like the one in John 1010, which none of us know. He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. A few others flashed through my mind By staying you,
I did something I stayed my mind on the father's promise. And I said, Father, you said, it can be done. Therefore, I don't know how you're going to do it, father, but I gotta make that trade. And I thank you for getting me there on time. When I opened my eyes, after I'd said that little prayer, I think I was the most surprised man that that kept that taxi cab driver ever had. And I think his eyeballs were almost on the floor of the seat, he was surprised to the cause in a matter of 30 seconds, that traffic just cleared off the road off the street. And we went just like Jay, who does the train depot? You see, I? I wonder about some of these things. Same as any other person. Somebody may say, Well, you're nuts. Also on it's a happy time.
That I'm sure of one thing. I'm never going to get any more nuts than 55,000 people I observed today. If I ever acted one half that bad. That's the way biblical Research Center. None of you would ever come back. But y'all go these other places. Well, you know, they're not nuts. They're just fans. What do you know what the word fan comes from? fanatical? I never want you to be a fan of the way ministry, I just want you to know the word and know that it is God who is that work within you. God's at work, he knew I had to make that train. wasn't any question of God, no one is questioning my knowing and knowing how to get the release the release of this enslavement of myself where I was getting nervous, you know, biting at the bit per strain, and at the best for straining at something, and you get all except, you know, I wonder how you're going to do it. I just saved my mind got quiet insight. And the scripture says, Be still and know that I'm on. And the greatest Cardinals of light only come into the great harbors over the quiet seas. Then the big ships never come in. When the sea is rough, or when it's quiet, they move in. When it's rough, they lay away out. This is why when Colossians two span with which we started tonight said you are completing him you begin to see some of the greatness that's possible is a renewed mind for all God's people and God's believers today. You know, in first Peter five seven, perhaps we ought to just look at this tonight. This is the same usage. The same essence of the talk King about casting down every imagination here in First Peter chapter five verse seven. It says Casting all your up your tears upon him. Cast all your cares upon for he Perez, what are you casting all your cares? You know what, how most of us cast our tears. We take them like this. And I would offer it to Mr. Sutton and Wiley. He was taken out on pull back this way just to be sure that he didn't get my tears too quick. That's how we let go. The word says Cast all your wad. Casting all your cares. It doesn't say hold on to him. It says get rid of and the word casting is that word again. You just do not take it like this. Cast your cares upon Him. though. You take deliberately take those pairs with all the strings you've got and you're throwing like Los Angeles forgot to throw them a couple weeks ago. Like the Orioles did. I don't know. But anyway, just throw them. It's casting. It's really just giving them out hard casting your cares upon Him, casting your cares upon Him. And once you let go and let God things begin to happen. It's when you keep your automobile in first, when it ought to be in reverse you run into problems. Asked me the shed was a little 230 the other week None of you have ever had that experience, I hope. So you cast all your cares upon Him. Why? Because He cares for you. You know how I know this? Because John 316 says God so loved the world that he gave, I did. You didn't know any other individual or church or denomination. It was God who so loved that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. This is why the Scripture says we are more than conquerors through him who loves us, and who gave Himself for us. Because it's Christ in you, God at work within you, which makes you complete, which gives you the more abundant life which makes you more than anything else in the whole world could possibly make. This is why we cast our cares upon Him for He cares for you.
