Christ In You The Hope Of Glory!
The Christian is not a religious fellow, but one in whom all the fullness of Deity resides. If you’re born again, God dwells in you. This should give you a new mindset and confidence in life. There’s a big difference between us today – the new creation – and the Old Testament folks. God’s plan was to be in them, but they couldn’t enter into His rest because of unbelief.
When Jesus came, He came as “Emmanuel”, meaning “God with Us”, and thus was them until His crucifixion. After His resurrection, and the arrival of the Holy Spirit, the new creation – The Church – came into being and now, He lives in Us by The Holy Spirit. Hallelujah! He’s no longer Emmanuel, God with us, but God in Us. God was with the prophets of old, but He is more than with us today, He is in us. This is the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but has now been made manifest to His saints. That mystery is: Christ in you, the hope of glory!
So how do I know that my life is going to be glorious? The answer is because Christ is in me! That’s my hope for a healthy, prosperous, vibrant and successful life! That’s my confidence that I’ll never be defeated in life. The Bible says when He died, I died with Him, when He was buried, I was buried with Him; and when God raised Him from the dead, I was raised together with Him. And now that I’ve been raised together with Him, and made to sit together with Him in the heavenly realms, no more death; no more defeat; no more sickness. In Him I live now and forever! Hallelujah!
Remember, you’re not an ordinary person; you belong in a special class of divine beings – “The Christ-In-You-Species!” This is your hope for the transcendent life of the miraculous.
May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
