See Your Calling Pt.4

The call from God

And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:...

That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:28-31 (KJV). Keeping these scriptures in mind will help deflate that ego. God uses nobodies. If we think we've become somebodies (in our flesh), we will cease to be used (Isaiah 42:8).

By the work of God through the new birth, we are now "in Christ Jesus." This terminology was used frequently by Paul to describe our relationship with Christ.

The word "in," as used in this verse, means a condition, state, or attribute. The Christian life is not just difficult to live; it is impossible to live through our own ability.

The proper way for Christians to act is to humble themselves and ask God for direction. Then the wisdom of Christ within them will come out and He will direct their paths (Proverb 3:6).
