A Reason to Boast

Watch Now


"So that through my being with you again your boasting in Christ Jesus will abound on account of me." Philippians 1:26

Paul was saying that others were going to boast in Christ because of his input in their lives. His confidence was not in Paul but what Christ was doing through Him. He even knew that what Christ was doing was going to help others walk more faithfully. It is almost as if Paul disappeared and Christ was now working through Him. He was so confident that Christ was reigning that he no longer had to talk about Paul but about Christ. 

How confident are we in our faith? Are we living for Christ so closely that we are assured that our faith is helping others to live their faith? It is not an arrogant thought, because it is not about you but about Christ. When our focus becomes about Christ and his ability in us we can be assured that others are going to see Him living in us. It no longer becomes about how others see us, but how they see Christ in us.  We no longer crave for others to see us, but we are delighted when through our life people can boast about Christ.  People can see Christ living in us and find a reason to boast. What a way to live! 

What if others started boasting about Christ, because they could see the ways He was working in your life? When we desire all the attention how can others see who Christ is in us? There isn’t enough space for you and Christ when you demand all the attention to be on you. When we decide our life is no longer about me but about Christ in me then we truly find that to live is Christ. When we live like that we find that others will soon start being amazed and be drawn closer to Him. Let us give others a reason to boast not in all of our abilities but in the power of Christ. Let us become His mirror to the world. 

Today in the Workplace:

Who do you want others to boast about you or Christ in you?
