Just Do it!




Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

*******

We must realize our position in Christ.

We must realize our past position in Christ. When the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, we died with Him. We have paid the wages of our sins in full. We need not fear death anymore. It has no power over us.

We must realize our present position in Christ. We have been raised from the death. We now have eternal life.

*******

We must rely on the power of Christ.

We must rely on the power of His resurrection. Death has ceased to work in us marking us as sinners. Life is now at work in us, marking us as children of God.

We must rely on the power of His residence. Now the Lord Jesus Christ is alive in us, giving us power to live like Him! Now the Holy Spirit is dwelling within us, leading, teaching, empowering, comforting, and correcting us, making us more and more like Christ.

*******

We must rest in the provisions of Christ.

There is the supply of faith. God has given us the faith to believe in Him. The Holy Spirit continues to dispense faith in proportion to our need as we journey in life. We need to exercise our faith in Christ to grow stronger and accomplish great things for God.

There is the sacrifice of flesh. The Lord Jesus Christ took our place on the cross. There, He absorbed the wrath of God for us. There, He broke sin’s bondage and set us free. There, the Gospel was bought and paid for. All that is left for us to do is to receive Him by faith and we will be saved!

*******

Some thoughts.
  • Some of us need to make a fresh commitment to run the race for the Lord Jesus Christ again.
  • Some of us need to keep running for the Lord Jesus Christ until we have finished our race.
Whatever it is, just do it!
