The Surpassing Greatness of God
This Sunday’s message provided me with a deeper insight into “who I am” and “where I am” as a New Man (a new creation in Christ). I am not just human anymore because, by grace, the value of God is in me. I am now conscious that I possess the precious treasure of Christ in me, which must show the surpassing (excellent and incomparable) greatness of God’s power in me.
I am excited about the good news, but the message also challenged me to do my part in faith. To continue to trust, obey and submit to God at every step so that my transformation into the image of Christ will be complete. There should no longer be room for worrying thoughts and anxiety.
One of the highlights from the message that I found interesting is how the surpassing greatness of God’s power will deliver me during challenges and persecutions (2 Corinthians 4: 8-9). In other words, ‘No weapon formed against me shall prosper.’
I will open my heart to this great power for the grace of God to spread through me. The more we live like Christ, the more we spread the grace of God.
