“There should be a consistency that runs through us all. For Jesus does not change – yesterday, today, tomorrow, he is always totally himself.” Hebrews 13:8 (The Message)
I have Christ in me. Let Galatians 2:20 explain how: “I am crucified with Christ, and I no longer live but Christ lives in me. The life that I now live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Wouldn’t you think that with Christ in me, I would be Godly consistent? Frequently, however, I am ungodly consistent instead.
Good times – happy. Bad times – angry.
If Christ is in me, what is throwing me off? I think it is that I am often driven by circumstances.
Even though Christ is in residence in my life, and I want Him running it minute-by-minute, I often interfere. I push Him to spectator status and plow ahead on my own.
Sadly, I do this despite insisting that I want His Ways to be my ways.
There is plenty of proof that I cannot manage my own life in a consistently Godly way.
I must allow His consistency to overflow through me.
