Here are a few verses that help us see why.
Romans 6:11In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.Romans 8:1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.Romans 8:38-39For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Do you see how being "in Christ" should give us all the enthusiasm we need?
Are you bored with your job? Focus on being in Christ.
Are you tired of living and don't see a way things can be better? Focus on being in Christ.
Have relationships been a topic you'd rather not talk about? Focus on being in Christ.
In Psalms we read, "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." Jesus said in Matthew 6 that we are to seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and then all the concerns of this world will be worked out and provided. In other words, when we focus on being "in Christ" we can be hopeful, fulfilled. Enthusiastic.
Try this and see if your spirit is lifted:
- Read a little bit of the Bible each day.
- Thank God for the blessings you are aware of.
- Ask God for help with something you are facing.
- Take time to notice God's hand at work in creation and in your circumstances.
- Spend time with an enthusiastic Christian.
