CHRIST IN YOU
Colossians 1:27 (King James Version)
27To 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:
Unlike Old Testament saints, the Lord of Lords, the Father of Glory and the Holy Spirit dwell within you and I that have chosen to put our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
Jesus told us that if we kept His commandments the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit would make their abode in us.
Paul prayed in Ephesians 3, “that Christ may dwell in your (our) hearts by faith”. What do you believe about Christ dwelling in you? Are you convinced that Jesus and the Father are in your heart? Are you fully persuaded that the Greater One dwells in you? Do you know that you are the temple of the Holy Ghost?
Christ has been defined as, “The Anointed One and His Anointing”. You cannot separate Jesus from His Anointing, that’s what makes Him the Anointed One, that is the Christ. If you have one you have the other, it’s a package deal.
Think about it, Christ (The Anointed One and his Anointing) in you, your hope of glory your confident expectation of glory (His presence manifest). His anointing is His ability. His ability is the ability of God. You can do all things, you are sufficient and you are strong for all things through the One (The Anointed One and His Anointing) who constantly infuses you with power.
1John 4:17 contains the phrase, “as He is so are we in this world”.
How is he?
Who is He?
What does He have?
Where is He?
How will Him being in you effect what you do?
Christ (The Anointed One and his Anointing) in you, your hope of glory.
Be joyful and be confident in your anticipation of His presence manifest in your life.
