When you study the life of Jesus in His earth-walk, you’ll see that power at work in Him. Acts 10:38 declares, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” It was God working in Him to give sight to the blind, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, mend the broken hearted, deliver those who were oppressed of the devil, and even raise the dead. That same Christ, in His mighty power, is at work in you through the Holy Spirit. The Apostle Paul in Colossians 1:29 refers to how he took advantage of this energy of the Spirit that works mightily in us: “Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.” Then, in our opening verse, notice that he didn’t speculate; he didn’t say “Well, maybe it’s God that’s working in you,” no. He stated a definite truth: It’s God who’s at work in you, both to will and to act according to His good pleasure.
The good things you do don’t just come from your head or your mind; they’re God-inspired. If it’s good for God and pleasing to Him, and good for people, then He’s the One working in you, making you willing and causing you to act accordingly!
“Christ in you” makes you willing to serve God and helps you do it. He’s alive in you. He talks through you, walks in you, and works in and through you so your life will glorify God. He impacts the world through you. Hallelujah!
Dear Father, thank you, for you’re
the One who’s active, alive, and
working in and through me, both
to will and to fulfil your good
pleasure. I’m strengthened by the
Word and your Spirit, to express
your goodness and love to my
world today; I live to fulfil your
purpose, and help others do the
same, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
