Liberated from Death, Free to Rest

… put no confidence in the flesh — though I myself have reasons for such confidence (Philippians 3:3–4, NIV).

Throughout Philippians 3, Paul writes that before he came to Christ, he was dedicated, zealous, and energetic about fulfilling the law. He had all the right credentials and followed all the rules. But doing more and being more in his own strength aren’t the point of Philippians 3. 

When Paul came face to face with Christ, he found the resurrection power that changed his life. He was no longer blind to the freeing truth of Jesus. He no longer had to work for victory. He could work from it. And in the same way, today, the resurrection power of God lives in you!

You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. You are capable of more than you realize. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in you. In Him, you’ve been liberated from sin and death, and you can press on in your walk with Christ — not trying to work more but resting in who Jesus is and what He’s done for you!
