What will they remember …?

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7 New American Standard

God has put a treasure in you. He could have just cleaned you up on the inside and pointed you toward the goal of having this eternal treasure .. one day .. if you lived up to your part. But He didn’t. When you believed .. with all your flaws and imperfections .. He put the treasure of His Son in your life. Believing is how you live out this LIFE everyday. Some days are better than others. There are low moments pressured by expectations and God-designed circumstances .. all in place to show your believing life is really God’s surpassing power .. and not you. Jesus brings life in His name. The temptation is to try to arrange your life the way you want it .. and ask God to bless it. God knows that is the daily pressure of living in this world. The world courts “you” to take control. Life in Christ is you trusting Christ for everything about you. When you know that “this treasure” is God’s power through Christ, you’ll quit trying to make this life work for your ends. Because it is Christ that they see. It only takes a moment …

“But these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may life in His name.” John 20:31 New American Standard

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
