Through Christ

Some of the words in our modern worship songs are really powerful. The refrain of one we sang last Sunday keeps going through my head. ‘Yet not I but Christ in me.’ Pride is a worldwide problem, it has existed since the beginning of time. In fact right at the beginnin, the devil thought he was equal to God and as we know he was cast out of heaven with the fall of mankind following.

Pride still accounts for disasters today. It is pride that causes some of the world leaders to think they are better and more powerful than others and therefore feel they have the right to invade others countries.

It is not only world leaders, what about me, what about you? We so easily take full pride and credit for what we have achieved. Although we have gifts and talents, it is by being yoked with Christ that we achieve. As Jesus Himself said, ‘My yoke is easy and my burden is light.’ It is through Christ Himself that we achieve.
