A Secret Worth Living For…

November 23, 2012

” For this is the secret: Christ lives in you, and this is your assurance that you will share in his glory.” Colossians 1:27

It was hidden for so long that most people really didn’t think that God had room for their lives. He stepped out into the open so that you would no longer have to live within the closed world of yourself. You may consider yourself an open person .. open to new ideas .. open to others .. and open to changing if it would benefit your life. The problem you’ll keep running up against is yourself. And this is the secret God has brought out into the open: Jesus, crucified, dead, and now risen will live openly in your life by faith. Faith: What am I going to trust in? Who am I going to trust? What makes my life “worth living”? It is not “Christ and …” but Christ alone that makes your life worth living. Everything .. and that means everything in your life will only find real life .. real meaning .. and real purpose in Christ. All the other “things” will try to convince you that Christ does not have your best interests at heart. And this is where God’s secret steps out into the open: “I will bless you .. Love you .. Watch over you .. Protect you .. Guide you .. Provide for you .. Deliver you .. Forgive you. .. and so much more every moment of your life.” God’s secret for your life is out in the open. A secret worth dying for and now The Secret worth living through. Everything .. and that means everything in your life will only find true freedom to live and to love in Christ. And today…? It only takes a moment …

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
