THE WORDS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST 66

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:6 ” Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.

We continue with the fact that Jesus is the life. It is always what one is that determines what he does and subsequently what he will become.

Christ had taken His abode in the Christian. The child of God can only be successful in this life, if He acknowledges that Christ is in him. In actual fact he or she must do all things with the awareness that it is Christ actively working through him or her. (Philippians 2:13).

The book of Romans 8:9, 10 makes it clear that Christ in a Christian puts Him in the Spirit and not in the flesh. The verse 10 says “And if Christ be in you the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is life because of righteousness”. The Spirit in this sense is Christ in us.  The verse says that the body is dead, that is, the body no longer rules or leads us. The presence of Christ in us relegates the influence of the flesh or body to the back ground, giving way to the Spirit to lead and control us. The Christian with this understanding does all things by the life of Christ or the Spirit of Christ. This is the ground for true victory in his life.

 His (Jesus) life in us makes us live beyond the ordinary human.  Philippines 4:13 adds that we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us.  There is a super life at work in every child of God.  Align your thinking this way.  Face life with an advantageous mentality.

Our Lord Jesus faced His life encounters with this attitude. He made statements like the Father is with me.  John 8:29 “And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone: for I do always those things that please Him”.

The Lord Jesus is our life. He seeks to express Himself through us. May we allow Him to manifest His power and wisdom through you.

 CONFESSION

Christ is alive in me. He is my wisdom and my ability. All things are indeed possible with me because He strengthens me.
