Christ In You 2
One of the greatest mysteries I have heard of is how Christ can live in me.
Colossians 1:27: 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:
Ephesians 3:17a, 19, 20: That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; . . . 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Galatians 4:19: My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
Romans 7:22: For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
2 Corinthians 4:16: For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
Ephesians 2:22b: . . . ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19: What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 Peter 1:11: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Romans 8:9-10: But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
2 Corinthians 4:7: But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
When we have Christ in us and we are in Christ we have someone rock-solid and fail-safe in us and we are in someone that is rock-solid and fail-safe. Bank vaults can be penetrated but nothing can penetrate the body of Christ. Nothing can get Him out of you and nothing can get you out of Him.
John 10:27 -29: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father*s hand.1 John 4:4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
We can never know too much about how Christ lives in us and we live in Him. These mysteries are worth studying for a lifetime and I believe that we will be learning more and more about them for all of eternity in heaven. We will learn perfectly how those things worked here on earth. God*s miracles often work together. There are not two greater or more coordinated miracles than Christ in you and you in Christ.
. . . if, then, He reigns in my heart, there will be no space for another reigning power.
