In Christ Alone

‘in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.’ (Colossians 2:9-10)

Beloved, wherein does your faith lie?

God’s Word says that Christ is the head over every power and authority. And through him, we’ve been brought to fullness.

In Christ alone, we have full justification.

In Christ alone, we have the abundance of life.

In Christ alone, we have eternal hope.

He’s our source of joy, strength, healing, provision, salvation.

No longer are you bound by any curses or evil forces, for you have been set free through Christ.

Not by strife, nor by might, did you receive this gift, but through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rejoice. Sing praises to the Lord. For in Christ, you have everything you need.

Be Greatly Blessed!

 
Prayer:

Father, thank you for gifting us with salvation through Christ.

Help me to keep Jesus in the center of my life.

I choose to live freely and fully through Christ.

I choose to trust in Him over the things of the world.

In Chirst alone, I find abundant life.

Thank you Father.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,

AMEN!

Additional Thoughts:

‘And he said to them, “Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.”‘ Luke 12:15.

Jesus said that the good life has nothing to do with what we own. He warns us to be on guard against greed, which tells us we need to have more. Those are hard words to swallow. Especially in a culture that tells us the very opposite. Advertisements come rushing at us from all directions every day telling us to buy more and then we will be happier, more fulfilled and more comfortable. With everything around us that we could ever need, we can kick back, relax and live trouble free, just like the rich man in this parable.

How do we respond to the pressure to accumulate and hoard? How well can we tune out and resist the need for more enticements in order to have a fleeting sense of satisfaction? Remember the words from Proverbs 27:20, ‘Death and destruction are never satisfied, and neither are the eyes of man.’

Can we concentrate on the truly good life that is found in Christ alone? Living in close relationship with God through His son Jesus and doing the work He has called us to do is where real contentment and fulfilment is discovered. And moreover, this is where our identity and value is found. What makes our life valuable is not how much we own, but who owns us.

True abundance, comes from a rich spirit. A spirit that trusts in Christ alone as our source.

‘But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.’ (Matthew 6:33)

Focus on the Kingdom of God through Christ within. Build up and keep a prosperous spirit, and abundance will flow through your life.

Was the rich man in the parable truly prosperous? Is his confidence based on his worldly possessions? Or a God who’s infinitely more valuable?

If he truly had a prosperous spirit and trusted God as His source, why would he be dismayed when Jesus asked him to give away his possessions to the poor?

This is the same Jesus who feeds thousands with just five loaves and two fishes. This is the same Jesus who raises the dead and heals the sick.

Have we been rich in our relationship with God? How do we feel when we estimate our worth and value in the expectations of this culture, rather than our relationship with Him? Do we truly have a prosperous spirit? Or are we merely putting up a show with our possessions?

There will always be an inner pressure to perform, to keep up and to fit in when we are chasing after the things of this world and meeting its demanding standards.

Only by letting go of encumbrances and becoming encumbered to God will we find freedom, peace and satisfaction. There is deep consolation when we rest in the truth that our true worth and value is found in Christ alone.

Seek Jesus first. And all that you need will naturally be added unto you.
