“Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” The One who calls you to a life of righteousness is the One who by your consent lives that life of righteousness through you! The One who calls you to minister to the needs of humanity is the One who by your consent ministers to the needs of humanity through you! The One who calls you to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, is the One who by your consent, goes into all the world and preaches the gospel to every creature through you! This is the divine genius that saves a man from the futility of self-effort. It relieves the Christian of the burden of trying to pull himself up by his own bootstraps! If it were not for this divine provision, the call to Christ would be a source of utter frustration, presenting the sorry spectacle of a sincere idealist, constantly thwarted by his own inadequacy. If you will but trust Christ, not only for the death He died in order to redeem you, but also for the life that He lives and waits to live through you, the very next step you take will be a step taken in the very energy and power of God Himself.”
– Major W. Ian Thomas
Have you taken the victorious truths of the Bible and applied it to your life? The enemy wants to keep you down and in a state of defeat. But Christ offers victory! We must be as Paul who wrote about dying daily, and yet he lived, yet not him, but Christ lived in him. That must be the same for us today, it must be Christ working in and through our lives; mere human efforts will only fall short of bringing the glory to God that is due His name.
For the glory due His name!
