Submit your prayer requests below:
Christ desires to do a great work in those of us who have trusted in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6; 2:13; Colossians 1:29; Ephesians 3:20.
How can we see Jesus Christ do a great work in and through us?
First, do what Christ has commanded.
A principle found throughout Scripture is “God will not do for you what He expects you to do.”
What is the application here? If you want Christ to do a great work in and through you, you must apply yourself to grow spiritually. 2 Corinthians 3:12-18
If you truly want to see Christ do a great work, you must have a tender heart that desires to do what Christ has commanded. Colossians 1:28-29
1 Thessalonians 2:13 - … when you received the Word of God, which you heard from us, you received it not as the word of men, but as it truly is, the Word of God, which effectively works also in you who believe.
Second, overcome the voice of opposition.
When you begin to get serious about the Lord and the things of God, especially when God is doing some awesome things in your life, the opposition will be stirred up to hinder His working. Nehemiah 2:17-20
2 Corinthians 5:7 - For we walk by faith, not by sight
Hebrews 11:6 - Without faith, it is impossible to please Him…
Third, fearlessly stand on Christ’s promises.
The truth is, every one of us has areas lacking in our lives (humility, contentment, joy, love, patience, holiness, faithfulness, forgiveness, etc.). Romans 4:18-25
God can do a great work in your life, but you must get in God’s Word, and study His promises to you as a believer in this time of grace.
“For all the promises of God in Him are “Yes,” and in Him “Amen,” to the glory of God through us.” 2 Corinthians 1:20
When you trust the Lord and stand on His promises, Jesus will provide divine enablement, unlike anything you could have ever imagined. John 11:44
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36
Will you allow Christ to do a mighty work in and through you?
