Christ is in you
Colossians 1:26-27 – This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message.
I love the inclusivity of this verse. Paul makes it clear that everyone is invited to know this secret – regardless of who they are, what they’ve done or what they believe. Everyone has Christ in them, and everyone has the ability to access Him and His love.
There is no one in the world who doesn’t have Christ in them. No one is ever too far away or too far gone for Him.
How amazing is it that Jesus Christ – the one who was nailed to a cross and died for our sins, to then be resurrected three days later – is in us? It’s hard to imagine it. So hard in fact, that the majority of us don’t make the most of it.
The Creator of the universe, the redeemer, the Messiah, the Son of God, the Holy One, the Saviour, the Perfect One, is in you. Just think of all your possibilities. Just think about how limitless you are with Him living and breathing in you.
You may not be perfect. You may have more than just a few weaknesses. You may struggle.
But He doesn’t. He is strong. He is faithful. He is peace. He is everything you need and He is in you.
Walk through your day knowing and believing that simple fact.
