Yet Not I, But Christ

We get too stuck on ourselves. Who am I? What is my purpose? Am I doing everything I'm supposed to be? How can I be more ... better ... all ... and so on.

Did you realize that Scripture tells us exactly who we are - and it has absolutely nothing to do with 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

Once you're saved, it's not your life anymore. You're not the one shining through everything you do - it's Christ. You are not your own - you're His.

If you take yourself out of the equation of life, all of the focus goes to Jesus. We waste a lot of time looking at ourselves through our own eyes. That's pretty pointless.

Instead, let's look at what God's Word says about how Christ lives through us. Have your Bible handy and get ready to do some study.

I can do all things - through Christ. Philippians 4:13

I am a new creature. 2 Corinthians 5:17

I am more than a conqueror. Romans 8:37

I am supplied for all my need. Philippians 4:19

I have He who is greater in me. 1 John 4:4

I am alive. Ephesians 2:5

I have a better mind. 1 Corinthians 2:16

None of these are things that I could ever boast of doing or having or being on my own. It's only through the precious blood of Jesus Christ that I have been blessed.

And there are so many more throughout the Scriptures. I challenge you to find more and stand firm in how Christ is working in your life.

I live, yet not I, but Christ.

It's all about Him.
