Day #1 of 20-day Blog mini-series #2,
Chapter TWO, "In Christ Jesus our Lord"
    
"In Christ Jesus our Lord"
Anything and everything that is done apart from God is vain. No matter how good the cause may seem, to ourselves or to others, and no matter what the outcome, unless God has sent us and is with us, as He said to Gideon (see Judges 6:14-16), we ultimately will fail in any endeavor. With God, however, we can do all things; for it is His strength that is with us and in us. "Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength." (Isaiah 45:24) That strength is the life of the Lord Jesus Christ being fulfilled in us. "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." (Galatians 2:20)

Question to ponder:

How does it make you feel to know that, God has sent you to do a unique work created just for you to do, and you can do all of those things in His strength?  _________________________________________

Keith's "Comments from the Author":

"There are no two people who are created alike, or who are wired for the same purpose. Hence, there are no two people alike in their calling and abilities. Each one of us is uniquely designed to fulfill a part in God’s plan and divine purpose, for all of His Creation. There were monumental times in my life when I stepped out in faith, offering love and gratitude to God, as I took advantage of tremendous opportunities where God would be magnified in the eyes of those who saw, or heard, what I was stepping out in faith to accomplish *with* Him. I am compelled to step out in faith, to serve 'with' God WHOLE-HEARTEDLY, because it's by Him I am able to know the who, what, and why He created and wired me to be, to begin with.

'...unless God has sent us and is with us...'  We encourage you to pull up the Scripture of what God said to Gideon in Judges 6:14-16. As you read it and meditate on it, take notice of the parallels between Gideon and his journey, and the journey that God has planned and lays out for you, individually, and He has one for each one of us, individually. I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t want to find myself standing before our Almighty, Loving God having done my own thing, or having done simple 'good things' at the expense of 'the right thing'. There’s nothing more wonderful than working w-i-t-h God to fulfill the plan He has created for our lives.
"

"...Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me."
 (Galatians 2:30)
