“I am always doing things I can’t do”
In the New Testament the Christian life is described as a way of being and doing in the world. This means that my daily life and all the practices and things I do reflect the way- the way of life I have embraced in deciding to make Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour.
But what I love about this new way of living is that I don’t have to do it in my own strength and you also don’t have to do it all by yourself and in your own strength. We started this journey by grace the strength of God coming to us and we also continue by His grace. This is how I like to put it, whenever I feel frustrated and stressed out I take a step back because I’m doing it in my own strength. My strength is limited, and it means I need to draw from His grace.
Today draw your strength for the way from Jesus who is the One who started this process in you and who will also be the One who will complete whatever He has started in you.
We are the people of the way who enjoy the ‘way’.
