Monday Meditations 003: Not I, but Christ

It’s Monday!  Here’s a short quote that I have found to be immensely helpful in my walk with Christ.

God is not seeking a display of our Christ-likeness, but a manifestation of His Christ.
~ Watchman Nee

The idea of the quote is that we are not called become like Christ through any power of our own.

We must rely on Jesus alone in every moment, setting ourselves (our flesh) aside so that Christ Himself can be manifested and expressed through us.  We even rely on Christ to set our own flesh aside.

Everything always comes back to Christ alone.

My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20

Question for discussion:

~ What does this quote mean to you?

  1. It means to me that only Christ can imitate Himself and I get the privilege of being the instrument that He uses.

  2. “We even rely on Christ to set our own flesh aside” – Oh yes, I tried this just moments ago by myself and failed miserably! But IN CHRIST, BY CHRIST, I can do all things because it’s really HIM doing it in me! Praise God!
