Strong in God’s Strength

Description

Without Christ I can do nothing, but in Him I can do all things!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13, NKJV).

I was once sitting in an audience when the speaker asked, “What do you think God expects of you?” I mentally ticked off a list of things I thought God expected of me: obedience, faithfulness, holiness, love, service. To my astonishment, the speaker went on to say, “All God ever expects of you is failure!” I wanted to raise my hand and say, “I can do that! I can live up to the expectations of God! I know I can fail!” But then the speaker added, “However, He has given you the Holy Spirit so that you need never fail.” Right! Without Christ I can do nothing, but in Him I can do all things!

The difference between strength and weakness, righteousness and wickedness, success and failure, is Jesus—the Holy Spirit—in me.
