2018 – MONDAY 30 APRIL
THE BEST OF YOU
“I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live. Yet it is not my life but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
So many people think that Christianity/religion is all about getting the worst out of you – so you can be a better person.
Nothing could be further from the Truth.
1. WHEN YOU DIED WITH CHRIST – YOUR WORST WAS CRUCIFIED
The only cross I need to experience – is the cross of Christ. My worst was crucified with Christ.
2. WHEN YOU ROSE WITH CHRIST INTO A NEW LIFE – YOUR BEST HAD COME.
Risen with Christ as a new creation. All the old things are gone – everything is new.
3. CHRIST LIVING IN YOU GUARANTEES GOD’S BEST IN YOU.
Christ in me the hope of glory.
4. GOD WANTS TO REVEAL HIS BEST – AS YOUR BEST
Jesus is heaven’s best. Reveal Christ in you and you will be at your best.
Stop striving to prove you are something special.
5. YOUR BEST COMES WHEN YOU REST.
When you learn to put your faith in the finished work of Christ – you can experience His promised rest – and demonstrate His brilliant best.
6. EVERY TEST – IS TO BRING OUT YOUR BEST
Trials and tribulations are not the harsh dealings of God to eliminate your worst. They are God’s instruments to prepare you for His best.
It is in the test that you reveal your best.
7. YOUR BEST IS YET TO COME
Faith believes for bigger promises, better days and brighter moments.
Keep believing the promises of God.
There is more of heaven’s best still to be revealed in and through you.
