If you are a believer in Jesus Christ and have actually confessed your sins and believed in Him for salvation and a new reality, I want to remind you that Jesus Christ is your new life. Colossians 3:4 reminds us of the truth that Christ is our life and Colossians 3:3 lets us know that our lives are hidden with Christ in God. This week when you are facing the struggles and realities of this world remember this:
- Christ is my new life: He is the perfect, content, holy and fulfilled life and He actually lives in me!
- Christ is my victory: Though I struggle with my insufficiencies, He is the victor in all things and specifically He is the victor in this!
- Christ is my fullness: Of myself, I am tired, weak, foolish and empty, Christ is overflowing in the fullness of all I need!
- Christ is my supply: In this moment that I am lacking, Christ in me has all I need!
- Christ is my peace and rest: This week as the wind blows and the waves crash, Christ is at perfect rest in me.
