“The Christian life is not what I can do for God, but what Christ wants to be in me.  Therefore, when my purpose, goal, and aim in life is simply to know Christ — living a life of intimate, abiding fellowship with Him — then He will initiate and fulfill His good works through me (Ephesians 2:10).  His good works are the overflow of my daily walk with Him — His life being lived through me —without my even realizing that which He is doing.  And this will bring praise and honor and glory to christ, the Preeminent One, “Christ in you, [which is] the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).”  Jerry Benjamin, Simply Singular Is Christ Prominent or Preeminent?, p.14.
