One element which has struck me this go-around is Stewart's skillful articulation of the way in which being "in Christ" not only summons us to a particular way of living, but also equips us to carry it out. In other words, Jesus is indeed the Christian's example; but he is also the Christian's benefactor without whom she/he would be lost in despair (in the present) and doomed to banishment (for eternity). What follows is a lengthy quote from Stewart. I hope you'll find it as encouraging worship-instigating as I have.
[Paul reminds us] that the example of Christ is only a part...of the redeeming Gospel. Were there no more than this, the contemplation of the perfect holiness of Jesus could only breed despair. No shining example, cold and remote as the stars, can cleanse the conscience that has been defiled, or break the octopus grip which sin gets upon the soul. The evangel of an ethical example is a devastating thing. It makes religion the most grievous of burdens. Perhaps this is the real reason why, even among professing Christians, there are so many strained faces and weary hearts and captive, unreleased spirits. They have listened to Jesus' teaching, they have meditated on Jesus' character; and then they have risen up, and tried to drive their own lives along Jesus' royal way . . . The great example [of Jesus] has been a deadweight beating them down, bearing them to the ground, bowing their hopeless souls in the dust . . . [BUT for Paul,] 'Christ in me' means something quite different from the weight of an impossible ideal, something far more glorious than the oppression of a pattern forever beyond imitation. 'Christ in me' means Christ bearing me along from within, Christ the motive-power that carries me on, Christ giving my whole life a wonderful poise and lift, and turning every burden into wings. All this is in it when the apostle speaks of 'Christ in you, the hope of glory' . . . To be 'in Christ,' to have Christ within, to realise your creed not as something you have to bear but as something by which you are borne, this is Christianity. It is more: it is release and liberty, life with an endless song at its heart. It means feeling within you, as long as life here lasts, the carrying power of Love Almighty; and underneath you, when you come to die, the touch of everlasting arms. (169-70)
