I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me

When thinking deeply on this powerful verse, it plainly highlights the fact that the Christian life we’re to live is not ours but Christ’s. It’s a type of life which foundation is rested entirely on the person of Christ having His ways in us. Even if that God has promised us in His infallible Word that He’ll never leave us no forsake us (Hebrews 13:6); however, He’s never made us any promise that things would go well for us all the time. Besides, He has let us to go through tough times for a specific reason. There’s no shadow of a doubt that these bad circumstances won’t always make any sense to us as we’re going through them, but one day they’ll all make perfect sense. Continue reading

We all as believers know that faith is the starting point of the Christian life. We’ve become whom we are in Christ as result of our faith. However, one thing that’s very important is that faith all by itself isn’t what makes the difference.
