Christ’s Work in Us

The new man always lives in quietness and he always experiences peace. Why? Because he is living in Christ, and Christ lives in the new man, filling his humanity to reveal His purpose, provision, power, person, and peace.

David said, “I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress” (Psalm 17:3). Solomon, in 1 Kings 5:5, purposed in his heart to build God a house. In Nehemiah 8:4, a pulpit of wood was built for a purpose. The pulpit has only one purpose: to be used to preach the Word of God. It has no other purpose.

We go to work in the morning on purpose, doing what we do with all of our might, loving what we do, and fulfilling God’s purpose, whatever it is. Whatsoever we do, we do it with all of our might (Ecclesiastes 9:10). “Whatsoever” takes everything into account.
