Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
There’s a popular singing competition television show today called The X Factor. The show gets its title from a term that’s used to denote a certain quality or qualities that cause a person to rise above the ordinary and become a star.
Years ago, I picked up a book at the bookstore entitled The X Factor: A Quest for Excellence written by George Plimpton. In it, the author surveyed athletes looking for that extra something in their lives that propels them to victory. He also looked at those who are successful in the business world, in politics, and in the arts to see just what it was that took them from ordinary to extraordinary.
As a Christian, you have the X factor! Do you know what that something extra is? It is the divine dynamic of knowing God! It’s that something extra that you have in Him when you pray and seek His face. It’s the power of His Holy Spirit living inside of you.
Very often, I see Christians who settle for such an ordinary life. They think, “I’m not talented or brilliant, so I guess I’ll just let life happen to me.” Well, if you’re in Christ, you have what it takes to live powerfully through the Spirit. So take the leap and start living boldly for Jesus today!
IN CHRIST, YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO RISE ABOVE THE ORDINARY. SO SURRENDER TODAY AND START LIVING BOLDLY FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD!
