“The Superiority of a life lived in and for Christ”

“because of these outside darknesses that our inward light has an opportunity to shine so brightly.”

I found this on a weekly update that I get from Living Waters ministry. Hope you are blessed as I was.

“In a word, we are to live victoriously, truly, nobly, sweetly, cheerfully, joyfully–in spite of whatever may be uncongenial in our condition!”

“This is the lesson of all Christian life. We should not let the outside darkness into our soul. We should seek to be delivered from all morbidness and all unwholesomeness. We should not allow anything to crush us.”
JR.Miller

“Remember, your task in living–is to keep sweet, to keep your heart gentle, brave, strong, loving, full of hope–under the worst that the years can bring you of injustice, hardship, suffering, and trial.
Is your general attitude in life one of joy and sweet gratitude or of bitterness and frustration? I know a pastor who is a great inspiration to me. He says that the reason Christians get cancer, get laid off work, and loose loved ones, is to show the superiority of a life lived in Christ. It is precisely because of these outside darknesses that our inward light has an opportunity to shine so brightly! Remember the grief and anguish and crushing weight of injustice and suffering that brought Jesus to sweat great drops of blood in the garden? Outwardly our Savior was broken and bruised by his circumstances, but inwardly He was hopeful and strong. He knew who was in control. And he knew why He was being treated this way- because His Father had a plan. Despising the shame, our Savior drank the bitter cup of horrendous circumstances His Father had appointed for Him, and boldly took hold of eternal life and glory for those His Father had given Him. Don’t let your circumstances get you down. Take hold of the opportunity to show the superiority of a life lived in and for Christ.”
