I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13 NKJV), is the “motto” for life for those who believe, that all things are made possible to those who trust and obey the will of God for their lives, with all their heart, and all their soul, and all their mind.  I am a firm believer, that in Christ we have the salvation to be all that He created us to be, according to (Romans 12:2 NKJV) “And do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God,” “For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them,” according to (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV), which is the answer to everybody’s reason for living, to honour God throughout our lives, obeying His Ten Commandments, which is the moral code of life in Christ Jesus to do His will, even amongst the unbelievers, to show our love and gratitude for our existence every day in the hardships and in the victorious outcomes, that “God is, and God will provide!”

The world system, is to do for yourself, but the Bible tells us that apart from God, nothing good is possible, for we can either accept our roles as Christians, following in Jesus’ footsteps as displayed throughout the New Testament, or recline from that life, into a life of self-indulgency and disrepute, which leads to a harshness of heart, and blaming everybody else for one’s circumstance when things did not turn out as they would have liked.  Jesus instructed all of us when He spoke these words in (Matthew 10:38 NKJV) “And he who does not take his cross and follow Me, is not worthy of Me.”  What does this all mean? Well, the cross is a symbol of sacrifice, but if we give Jesus our cross to bear for us when times are hard and seem never ending, He will carry it for us as He did for us when He carried the cross of our salvation in His dying on the cross at Calvary, and then the resurrection from that death into the life He promises for all who seek Him, for He declares to us in (Matthew 7:7-8 NKJV) “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened.”  This Scripture is our authority in Christ Jesus to ask for anything, and He will answer us, especially in those times when our cross is heavy to bear, we can cast all our problems onto Him, and He will shoulder our cross till the finished work is completed, and we can celebrate the life He intended for us to share our lives with Him, so that He may be glorified in all our actions, words, and deeds, and not the glory given to self, for (Proverbs 16:18 NKJV) tells us that, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
The only way to live the good life Christ Jesus died to give us on the cross at Calvary, by redeeming us from the life of sin and death, is to be resurrected with Him in the newness of life in the challenges we face daily by becoming “outstanding achievers for the Lord,” by the standards we keep, morally and financially, dedicating all that we have and all that we own, to Him alone be the glory.  Lifting up to Him, the Lord Jesus all our problems, and all our victories, for in Christ Jesus alone, can we “trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey,” Amen!”
