Through Christ

Throwback Thursday

The Good Word

Philippians 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

I wrote about the importance of this Bible verse to me. Today I want to write about the importance of the verse overall.

Every obstacle or challenge, whether it be a financial problem or a family problem or a sickness or whether it be spiritual, through grief, through strife, through sin and addiction anything and every battle can be faced by just looking at this verse.

There is hope in this verse, all things are possible through this verse.

Truly all things are possible through Christ, we see this not just in this verse but throughout the New Testament.

The blind saw, the hungry were fed with little, the dead were raised, demons were defeated, sinners immersed deep in their sin were saved, miracle after miracle.

We are saved through Christ, He…

Staying on the Narrow Path

Matthew 7:13-14 (ESV)
13 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy[a] that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”

That verse may scare some because they’re afraid of falling away from God. They’re afraid it is not possible but remember Jesus’ answer from last week about how someone can be saved. He said…

Matthew 19:26, “26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

So with God your salvation that seems impossible to obtain is possible and ONLY possible through Christ Jesus.

That doesn’t mean there won’t be times where you stumble or even fall completely of the path.

Just remember if you do fall off you don’t have to start back at the beginning.

Allow Jesus to pull you back up. You are never too far out of his reach.

A lot of times people say, “Don’t look back”.

But on the Narrow Path, go ahead look back and see the progress you made.

See where you used to be before you started your walk with God. See the differences in your life.

Then keep going forward and let the Holy Spirit guide you to keep you from falling.

Let Him steady you.

And remember Jesus is the way.

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris
