Find It! Find It in Christ.

All Our Needs Are Met in HimĀ 

And because of him [God] you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption,

1 Cor. 1:30 ESV

Every emptiness we feel, every struggle we face, every setback we endure: all our needs are met in Christ. All spiritual warfare that we face, all sin that we fight, all the approval for which we yearn: all our burdens are freed at the foot of the Cross. All the victory we desire, all the fulfillment for which we long, all the love we desire to impart: all are released through an intimate love relationship with Jesus.

Apply to yourself all that your Savior is, or has done. Do you wish for all the graces of God’s Spirit? You will find them in His anointing. Do you wish for power against spiritual enemies? You will find it in his sovereignty. Is it redemption you seek? You will find it in His passion. Is it absolution you need? You will find it is His perfect innocence. Freedom from the curse? Find it as His Cross. Satisfaction? See it in His sacrifice. Cleansing from sin? Find it in His blood. Mortification? It is yours in His grave. Newness of Life? Find it in His resurrection. The right to heaven? It is insured for you by His intercession. Do you seek salvation? It is yours because He is seated at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Do you desire all? Then find it in Him Who is “One Lord, one God, and Father of all, Who is above all, through all, and in all.”
