O God, stamp eternity on my eyeballs…

All the good in Jesus dwells

Paul writes in Romans 7:18 that “nothing good dwells in me”(NASB) but Ephesians 2 speaks about the good we are to do, that God prepared beforehand. What gives? How is anyone
to do good if there is nothing good in us?

Good question!

Jesus is our good, period. Apart from him we can do nothing. In fact, it is Christ in us the hope of glory! God has sent His only begotten Son into the world that we might live through Him (1John 4:9).

It is not enough to profess Christ, we must possess Christ!
