Topic: Let Christ Live Through Us

Matthew 9:9, “And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.”

Text: Matthew 9:9-10, Mark 2:14-15, Luke 5:27-29

To “follow” means to come or go after; move behind in the same direction; to come or go with; to accept the guidance or leadership of; to adhere to the cause or principles of; to be governed by; obey; comply with (Jn. 10:27-29; Rom. 10:9-10, 13).

When a person first comes to Jesus, knowing everything that following Jesus entails is impossible. No one, however, should be fearful of making a total commitment because of some imagined problem that may never come to pass. There should be a willingness to forsake everything to follow Jesus. Once we make that decision, Christ begins to live through us, and we find a strength that is not our own, equal to whatever test we encounter (Gal. 2:20).

Christ living through us is the secret of victorious Christian living. It is not us living for Jesus, but Jesus living through us. Failure to understand this simple truth is the root of all legalism and the performance mentality. The law focuses on the outer man and tells it what it must do. Grace focuses on the inner man and tells it what is already done through Christ. Those who are focused on what they must do are under the law. Those focused on what Christ has done for them walk under grace.

Just as the life of a root is found in the soil, a branch in the vine, or a fish in the sea, the believer’s true life is found to be in union with Christ. The Christian life is not just hard to live; it’s impossible in our human strength. Let Christ live through us, the only way to walk in victory.
