The Christian life is impossible. I mean it! The Christian life is absolutely impossible to live. We can’t do it! But then again, who ever told us we had to? Maybe you should keep reading to find out what I’m getting at…
It is appalling to think how few “Christians” really understand what the Christian life is all about. Having been told that it is all about having your sins forgiven so you can go to Heaven when you die, they pretty much live like the rest of the world on any given day except Sunday. The apostle Paul directly challenges that way of doing life.
Through His death and resurrection, Jesus Christ has become our source of spiritual life. This is great news since only He can live the Christian life, and He wants to do it through you and I. But how do we position ourselves for that to happen?
Having dealt with the effects of man’s sin through the Cross, the Lord is now able to reopen the way to life. You may, however, be surprised at the way it works out.
