It’s Christ in You!

You Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens You! (Philippians 4:13)

This scripture teaches us strength does not come in the confidence in oneself. Instead, strength is in Christ alone. 2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us, “Whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creature. The old life has gone and a new life has begun.” As a child of God, all that God has for us is ours "in Christ!" We can now enjoy every benefit of who Christ is and all that He has accomplished for us, because we are in Him and Christ is in us! (Ephesians 3:17) The transformation from weakness to Christ’s strength involves a true change of character within, affected by God Himself. This is how God is ultimately glorified in the lives of His people: He works a genuine transformation of life in and through us. Then, we give Him the glory for His exceedingly abundant ability that’s at work within us! (Ephesians 3:20) Today you can make it through any and everything as you trust Christ’s strength in you!
