Shedding Light Moment 28th November 2022.
(Galatians 2:15-21); (2 Timothy 2:7-8).
Many folks who are physically disabled are dependent on their helpers to help them run “the race of life”. Without them they just couldn’t do it.
There is a parallel between their story and our own Christian life. Just as they are dependent on their helpers, we are dependent on Christ to complete our Christian race.
As we strive to live a God-pleasing life, we realize that in spite of our best intentions and determination, we often stumble and fall short. By our strength alone, it is impossible. Oh, how we need the Lord’s help! And it has been provided. Paul declares it with these insightful words, “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God”(Gal 2:20).
We cannot finish the Christian race on our own. We have to do so by depending on Jesus living in us. So ponder this SLM:-
“Faith connects our weakness to God’s strength.”
