The Crucified Life Teaching





In 1908 Jessie Penn-Lewis preached her message of the Crucified life to Frank Buchman.



Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. KJV

14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,  by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. Gal 6:14 KJV

Living the “Yet Not  I” Life.

   “ We need a 'fixed point', which acts as a centre and a goal, and that 'point' in the history of the world—back to the ages before it, and forward to the ages following. It is the Cross of Calvary. It is the central pivot of the dealing of God with the universe in every aspect. It is because we Christians get away from the 'fixed point' of the Cross, that we wander into all kinds of cul-de-sac places, where we lose the balance and right perspective of truth.”

             Jessie Penn-Lewis

What other great Christian of her day had to say about her:

"Your Cross of Calvary is preeminently of God. The splendid treasure of pain, your pain, has merged into the greatness of God's power. Your book teaches clearly and grandly what the Spirit witnesses to in the Bible and in our hearts, viz: that 'the Way of God' flatly contradicts common sense, and by implicit trust the Holy Ghost leads to resurrection triumph." --Oswald Chambers

"Truly prophetic were the words of Mrs. Penn-Lewis...as she spoke of 'the conviction growing in many hearts that the Holy Spirit is bidding the messengers of God go back to Calvary.'" --Andrew Murray

"...one of the most gifted speakers the world has known!" --R. A. Torrey

"It is God's telegraphic message to a dying world." --D. M. Stearns
