Yet not I but through Christ in me

This is the Ultimate not so-secret to Ultimate Victory in anything and everything that matters from past, in present & for future:

On our own, simply linear and limited:
My good works – Jesus = some limited good in this temporary world but absolutely nothing in the eternal world

With the power of God combined results in abundant multiples in this world and forevermore:
Jesus X (my good works X faith) = everything necessary and good in this world plus eternal rewards forevermore

We sang this beautiful song this am which I was reflecting upon and think ties in nicely

Yet Not I, But Through Christ in Me

Verse 1

What gift of grace is Jesus, my redeemer

There is no more for heaven now to give

He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom

My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus

For my life is wholly bound to His

Oh, how strange and divine, I can sing: All is mine!

Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Verse 2

The night is dark but I am not forsaken

For by my side, the Savior He will stay

I labor on in weakness and rejoicing

For in my need, His power is displayed

To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me

Through the deepest valley, He will lead

Oh, the night has been won, and I shall overcome

Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Verse 3

No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven

The future sure, the price it has been paid

For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon

And He was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated

Jesus now and ever is my plea

Oh, the chains are released, I can sing: I am free!

Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Verse 4

With every breath, I long to follow Jesus

For He has said that He will bring me home

And day by day I know He will renew me

Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus

All the glory evermore to Him

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat:

Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat:

Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
