Living the life of Christ

posted in: Streamglobe Devotional | 0

Colossians 3:1-4 (KJV) If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

After Henry understood what it meant to set his affection on things above, he no longer lived according to his long nurtured earthly ambition that was ultimately supposed to garner for him the praise of men. He realized that he was dead and his new life is hidden in Christ. His old life was gone and he was no longer living to please himself but only to please the Lord.

This was the reason why the power of God could now flow through him freely.

Those who abide in Christ are dead to their old lives [of pleasing themselves] and now only live to please the Lord. They no longer plot their lives according to their ambitions nor do they lean on their own understanding(Proverbs 3:5). They now live according to the vision and will of the Lord. As a believer, you can be assured that God’s plans for you are better than your plans for you. God’s vision for you is with a view of eternity, but your best plans for you are factored into time and limited by it. Two thousand years from now, you will still exist, but your own ambitions have no plan for your life then. But if you follow the vision of God for you, your eternal destiny is secured in greatness and glory.

Go into today remembering that your old life and all its baggage of ambitions, weaknesses, and pride, is dead. The life that you now live is the life of Christ. You now live in submission to God’s vision, no more according to your own ambitions.
