Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 21

Professing Christ versus Possessing Christ

Matthew 7:16

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

Do you know it’s possible to profess Christ, but not possess Christ? In other words, there are many people who talk about Jesus, or even say they are Christians, but they don’t live out what Jesus taught. Folks who claim to be Christian ought to at least live out what Jesus taught us.

To do that involves not only knowing about Jesus and his teachings, but actually have him inside, animating the Christian. Possessing Christ is totally different than a mere profession. It’s a lifestyle born out of a relationship. Jesus said “Ye shall know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:16).
