Christ Is The End of All Effort


Many times, we hear sermons or read the Bible and miss the import of what’s being taught.

Sometimes, it is the noise of Old English–the language in which the popular King James Version of the Bible is written in. At other times, it’s approaching God’s word without  the Holy Spirit. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, every scripture passage is inspired by God. And that, all passages are useful for teaching, for correction, for direction and for a course in righteousness.

That said, I want to elaborate Romans 10:4

‘Christ is the end of the Law, in order to bring righteousness to everyone who believes.’

The Law was about man’s performance; his ability to comply with or be like God, purely from his own effort. But Christ-the Anointed One and His Anointing-was God’s bestowal of everything; requiring no performance except to believe in the existence this gift of Christ through faith in the finished work of Jesus, the Son of God.

Nothing explains this better than in the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) when the the father of the older son, who was protesting that his father hadn’t as much as killed him a young goat and was now throwing a banquet for his younger brother who had just returned home from squandering his own inheritance said:

“You could have had anything you want son. After all, everything I have is yours.”

Many Christians today are like that older son; having everything and unable to use anything. Know this, Christ is our vast pool of health, wealth, relationships, destiny and anything you could ever ask for or imagine. Christ is the end of all effort. Believing right is all you need. Because with right believing, you will act right.

No matter what you are going through in your life, don’t fret, defer to Christ.

Christ is the Anointed One and His Anointing. Christ is the Person of Jesus. Christ is the Holy Spirit. Christ is the body of believers. Christ is the Word of God; the provision of everything. 

Christ is all you need to have your needs met.

Shalom!
