IDENTITY IN CHRIST | DAY 31
I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.
I am able to do all things
We have come from darkness, into the light. We want to make better choices. God says to you and me this is possible only through Jesus. This is the key. Check this out: through in the original language is ev. It means a fixed position in time, space, or situation. THE ONLY OPTION FOR DOING ALL THINGS WELL IS UNDER JESUS AUTHORITY!!
Paul was talking about being able to stay under Christ’s authority in ALL THINGS. To be strengthened to make Godly choices. Here are some examples:
Friendships are primarily about God, secondarily about you. IN CHRIST, your friendships can bring God great glory!
Your professional life can be a hard place to navigate as a Christian. IN CHRIST, you can make the wise choices
Becoming one with someone else takes a lot of work. The results are amazing, but apart from Christ, the results are not good. IN CHRIST, husbands and wives can make decisions that give God glory, and show care for their spouse
The second greatest joy (First is my marriage) of my life has been being a Daddy! Is it easy to be a parent? If it is, you are doing it wrong!! IN CHRIST, Moms and Dads can make decisions that bless their kids and disciple them for the glory of God!
