You and I have the power to do everything that God expects of us. Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. He gives us life. All the power that we have comes from Him, but we have the choice to use that power in the way that we please, the way that we choose. We can either use that POWER for ourselves, to run after the desires of our flesh and to realize OUR ambitions or we can seek the kingdom of God and do HIS WILL. How we use that power will determine where we spend eternity.
If we use that power on ourselves and on our lusts and on sin we will perish but is we expend ourselves for the kingdom of God, if we present ourselves to God as a living sacrifice to DO the will of God and we OBEY Him, then we will inherit the kingdom of heaven.
God gives us the POWER to do whatever WE WANT TO DO and if we do the will of God, if we go after Jesus, we will do the works that Jesus did and even GREATER WORKS because if we follow Jesus He goes ahead of us and it is not us doing those works any more but it is Christ living in us doing the works. It is not our wisdom but God’s wisdom because we DRAW ON HIS POWER!
We have all the power that we need to do what God wants us to do, to be children of God and to inherit His kingdom. Nobody will have any excuse. Nobody will be able to say that:”I could not stop sinning. I could not do this… I could not do that…” YOU DID NOT WANT TO! You did not want to follow Jesus. You did not want to obey God and therefor you WILL PERISH!
God gives us the POWER to do whatever we want to do. As you sow, so shall you reap! Do you WANT to follow Jesus? How are you using the POWER that God is giving you?
May Jesus bless you.
