“Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.” (Psalm 43:3, NIV)
God empowers those he is using to accomplish his purposes in this world. As KingdomNomics thinkers, we know that Christ is the light of the world, the source of life, and the fountain of life where we must spend time soaking our hearts in his presence.
This investment of time is needed if we are going to be effective as fragile vessels of clay to carry the light of the gospel into this lost world.
Our life, our confidence, and our sufficiency are sourced in Christ. All of the promises of God find their yes in Jesus Christ. Christ-empowered light can only shine through us as we allow and trust the power of the cross to suppress the self-life that is so eager to manifest itself.
Today, ask yourself:
Am I trusting in Christ to live his life through me instead of looking to my own self-effort to do so?
