God or Me

We can summarize our response to God’s call on our lives in two statements; “But God” or “But I” We make excuses for our disobedience by saying things like, “But I’m too busy”, or “But I’m not able”. If we believe in the power of God we respond with, “But God so loves the world” or “But God is able”.  This gives us a totally different outlook on things. Paul writes to the church:

 I have been crucified with Christ and 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, who loved me and gave Himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

Dying to self and living for Christ is what He desires. Live a bold and abundant life for Jesus.  For it is by grace you have been saved,through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—  not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. - Ephesians 2:8-10

Give yourself over to the work that He has begun in you It really is more fun to be a God’s way not a My way person.
can do all this through him who gives me strength. - Philippians 4:13

 He is able to heal you from the But I.
