“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” – Ephesians 6:10
I listened to a very good message tonight. One of the things discussed was how often we have the highest intentions and greatest ambitions for carrying out a task…but we subscribe to the wrong power source. (Ourselves.) What, though, can we accomplish on our own? We can do a lot of evil on our own, but what good can we do? Are we truly capable of doing anything good apart from Christ? I don’t think we are.
So then…when we quit trying to plug in to faulty power strips, and instead seek our help from the Lord…let’s move a book to the right. “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13) Now, if we are able to do unfathomable evil things apart from God…does it ever make you wonder the immeasurable amounts of good we could do through our omnipotent (all-powerful), mighty King?
Well, it makes me shut up and think.
