THE SPIRIT IS IN YOU
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” Colossians 1:27.
LIGHT FOR THE NOW: Everything Jesus Came to accomplish was aimed at Christ dwelling in you.
The essence of Christianity is Christ in you; that is the power and glory of Christianity. When some people say, ‘Christ is in me’, they are merely repeating a religious cliché. They have not really grasped the import of that statement. Everything Jesus came to accomplish was aimed at reproducing Christ in you. Christ in you is everything. Jesus didn’t just come to save us from sin, He saved us for a purpose! Saving us from sin was a means to an end which was to make each one of us God’s living tabernacle, in such a way that we become one with Him. The ultimate aim of Christianity is reproducing Christ here on earth. It is an extraordinary thinking. It reveals the excellence of God’s mentality. God didn’t just make us His house; He made us one with Himself. Together, we are one divine creation. For the Bible says, “….But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17).
God’s ultimate purpose was to reproduce Himself in us and He has achieved this through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. He didn’t just want to have children; His idea was to reproduce Himself and have associates of the God-kind. You may look at your life now with all that is happening around you and your life doesn’t seem like you are anything close to being an associate of the God-kind. This is why God wants you to focus on His Word and see that your royal and priestly life has begun. The Holy Spirit in you is the assurance, the guarantee and the realization of this glorious life. Halleujah!!
INSTRUCTION:Focus on the Word not on your situation.
PRAYER:Christ in me, the hope of glory, Amen.
QUOTE:You are a walking resurrection.
