DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Allow Christ To Live Through You
Christ has set a very high standard for His followers. Today’s passage consists of a list of those high standards towards which the Christian should strive. In the light of these standards, each honest person will identify areas in which he has made some progress, while in other areas he is struggling and failing woefully. It is tempting to give up and consider some part of the standards as impracticable. For examples we have “repay no one evil for evil”, “live peaceably with all men” and “do not avenge yourself”. If they are unachievable, God would not have asked us to live like that. In whichever area we are still struggling, Christ is able to empower us to succeed. His plan is to come in and live in us, thus empowering us to succeed in those areas where we have been failing. All He demands from us is to surrender fully to Him, so He can live through us.
Point of Emphasis: God wants to reform our lives and identity so that we eventually become like Christ.
Prayer Point: I surrender to You, God. Make me what You want me to be.
