What I am searching for these days is whether I have Jesus as the very core of my life. It is one thing to try to be a good person and to do essentially what is sacrificial in nature so that we can hope to bring glory to God. But ultimately, the question is do I work towards become more sacrificial or do I reveal something in me that I do not possess naturally but which has to be essentially Christ in me. I believe that the heart of Christianity is not trying to achieve goodness but reveal the Christ in me who is the source of all goodness. Now if that is the case, then I have to change my modus operandi. I have to focus towards bringing forth the Christ in me rather than just doing good and hoping that I would be able to do greater good if I work harder with my life. I need to echo the words of Paul when he says that I want to lay aside every hint of self righteousness for the sake of knowing Christ and being found in Him. Its all about Him and I am so thankful for that! Its not me, it’s Him, all glory be to Jesus!
