“Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me

This song here is what may be labeled as an anthem for every Christian on this planet!
Every line clearly grabs your attention and can be easily linked to numerous verses from the Bible. A few texts that come to mind are: Galatians 2:20, 2 Corinthians 12: 9-10, and Philippians 1:6. He himself is within us, leading us home, step by step!
Something that helps me remember that I cannot do things on my own, but that it is Christ in me that helps motivate me to get up every morning, is whenever I see an inflatable air dancer. Those dancers have air blowing through them all day long. They appear to fall over constantly, but there’s always a gust of air that gets them to stand up straight again and again. That constant air flow is like Christ living in all of us! May we all continue to sing praises to our God through our lips, during and even after our race is complete!
