“For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.” 1 Corinthians 4:20
Living the Christian life is more than just talk; it is our walk - how we live out our lives as believers. How about you? Do you do this through your own power and strength or do you trust in the power of God? Paul says in Ephesians 1:19-20: “I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.”
The very power of God is available to help us in our walk as Christians. We are reminded that…”God is working in you giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.” Philippians 2:13
You may be asking, but how do I get this desire, let alone the power to do it. Ask Him to help you reach that place in your life where pleasing Him is more important than pleasing yourself.
Remember He has the authority to empower you.
What He asks of you is total surrender. “It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
