The greatest asset in Paul's life was Jesus Christ, there was nothing better for him than the moment he met Christ and then there was no looking back.
Paul experienced Christ in every area and circumstance of his life and it was to his ultimate contentment, be it in poverty or in riches, in happiness and sorrow, there was none like Christ to befriend with in every area of life and in every situation.
"in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him. " Ephesians 3 : 12 (NKJV)
Cherishing his great alliance with Christ Paul brings forth the secret of his boldness and confidence being in Christ.
Do we have the similar boldness and confidence and faith?
Amongst the lethal weapons the devil uses against the believers is fear, depression and disbelief and these are not just personality failures, rather they are catastrophic and deadly sins.
Only Christ can bring us out of it, can instill boldness in us and fill us with the confidence that cannot fail.
The Holy Spirit reminds us of this blessed truth:
"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32 (NKJV)
"....Christ in you, the hope of glory. " Colossians 1:27 (NKJV)
Dear One!!! More than just being part of a Christian organization what is required more is that we should personally know Christ and then alone shall we be able to behold His beauty and experience His goodness.
Knowing Christ personally is not an alternative or an preferable requirement, it is the basic necessity of everyone for why should we miss this blessed privilege of knowing Him Whom Paul cherishes the most and truly there is none like Him.
