DAY 4 FRIDAY: DECEMBER 2020

THE ABILITY TO DO ALL THINGS!

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

Every Christian has the ability to do all things through Christ Jesus in life. That is the reason why a Christian dares not boast in the flesh but in Jesus Christ. In the opening text, the Bible says that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he can do all things through Jesus Christ that strengthens him in life. The ability to be able to withstand challenges, tackle problems and obstacles in life is in Christ Jesus. A Christian should take note of the fact that with God all things are possible to do all things in life. Hence, a life that is without God is absolutely a life that is indeed wasted and frustrated in life forever.

The Bible told us vividly in the book of Zechariah about Zerubbabel; God’s high priest in life. He was facing a lot of challenges and obstacles in life. But God sent His angel to declare to Him thus, “So he answered and said to me: ‘This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). Therefore, by the Spirit of the Lord in Christ Jesus, every Christian is indeed strengthened to do all things in life. A Christian has the ability to tackle all challenges both here and hereafter through Jesus Christ in life. Hence, a Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the power to do all things is absolutely possible with God in life forever.

A Christian who wants to be able to do all things through Christ Jesus, he should learn to stand firm by putting on the whole armor of God in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ephesians 6:11, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” In fact, whenever a Christian puts on the whole armor of God in life, he therefore receives the grace and divine power to withstand challenges and do all things for the Lord in life. The ability to do all things through Christ Jesus depends on your physical and spiritual alertness through the gospel message in life. A life that is without God’s grace and abilities is of course a life that is absolutely cursed and dead in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian has the ability to do all things through Christ Jesus; therefore, he should arise and put on the whole armor of God in his life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy (Colossians 1:11).
