“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. ” (NIV) 1 John 5:11-12
Society or the world today may place limits on us; our family, background, the nation where we live, our education, job description, business, or finance could place limits on us. But we must understand that the Christian life that we have been called to is a life without limits. It is the life that our Lord Jesus has brought us to. Bible says He has brought us from the powers of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9, Colossians 1:13).
We must refuse to be limited by the challenges of this world; the numerous sins in this world must not prevent us from doing what is “Christianly” acceptable by God. If people refuse to do good, we as Christians must do good because that is the life that Jesus taught us. The Bible tells us that during His time on earth, Jesus went about doing good. We must tame nature as Jesus did in his time because we know that all things work together for good for them that love the Lord and have been called according to his purpose (Rom 8:28).
This is the life that we were called into as Christians, coheirs with Christ Jesus; therefore nothing can and should limit us in a world where abnormal things are now considered normal. We can’t allow the devil to blindfold us and deceive us into believing that we are disadvantaged, because we are not. As we openly confessed Him before the entire world and accepted to carry our cross daily, we manifest Christ in us. Remember carrying the cross is not easy – our leader and friend, Jesus, proved it – however one thing is sure He was victorious in the end and so shall we be. That is what He promised us, “surely we have overcome this world” (John 16:33).
Let us keep this in mind; our ability to succeed in this deteriorating world is from God; that means it is unlimited.
