Can you live the christ life? - holiness


Were you lied to as child Christian? I was. . . let me explain.

You are a Christian, right? So, Can you live the Christ life? Well I guess I want to get a barely more complex than that. I want to ask you if you can live the Christ life by your own effort!

If you're like me, you were in all probability brought up in a House of worship where the cleric told you every Sunday how you were believed to act. He doubtless told you that you looked-for to do such and such in order to be a "good Christian".

And what if that stuff was hard to do? If you had a challenge with a a selection of sin, what was the counsel that you received. How was it suggested that you go about the business of "living the Christian life"? If your early Christian learning was like mine you were lied to!

The way to accomplishment I was told was because of willpower. Grittin' the teeth and whatnot and just to "buckle down and do a touch for God". No be relevant how uncomfortable it may of seemed.

And uncomfortable it was! Are you still with me? I'm sure I'm not the only one that found the burdens of Christianity hard to live with. What could be heavier than the burden of a God that was discontented with your level of performance? Naught comes to mind for me. Why then does the Bible say this in Matthew 11:29-31:

"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. ?

And I'd bet dollars to donuts that I'm not the only one that found for my part fading more than I was succeeding-am I right?

Sure you might get nice and fired up about being a good Christian once or twice but then you'd fail and the "failure, condemnation, rededication Cycle" would set in (to quote a express coined by Dr. Steve McVey). After the failure, I'd feel condemned that I had abortive God. After that episode of self pity and all-purpose air of patheticness (Is that even a word?), I'd rededicate my labors to do change for the better for God the next time.

Sound familiar? Would you like to get off that holy rollercoaster ride and find the rest verbal of by Jesus? Are you ready for the Truth? Good, let me tell you what it's all about!

The Truth is that you, by your own efforts, can not live the Christian life!

Consider this verse:

"This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you catch the Atmosphere by the works of the Law, or by audible range with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?" Galatians 3:2-3

Didn't you come to salvation and the Christian life by faith in Christ to bring you that salvation? So why would you try to live that Christian life by your own crack in its place of by faith in the one that will live it all the way through you?

This is the key that will set you free. You can not live the Christian life, only Christ can! It makes sense doesn't it. He did it over 2,000 years ago and he is able of doing it all the way through you today! Bear in mind Hebrews 4:15:

"For we do not have a high priest who cannot empathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all effects as we are, yet devoid of sin. "

Jesus has lived the "Christ Life" and he will do it all the way through you if you let him!
