Christ In You And You In Christ
Having Christ in you and you being in Christ are two descriptions of the same reality.
Colossians 1:26-27: Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 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 3:16-17: That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
Galatians 4:19: My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,
2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
John 17:26: And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
John 17:20-21: Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
I love the way Abigail described David*s relationship with the Lord:
1 Samuel 25:29: Yet a man is risen to pursue thee, and to seek thy soul: but the soul of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of life with the LORD thy God; and the souls of thine enemies, them shall he sling out, as out of the middle of a sling.
Oswald Chambers expresses beautiful truth about a Christian*s relationship with Christ:
Are you wrapped around Christ and is He wrapped around you? Life changing . . . direct . . . dynamic . . . energizing . . . preeminent. Those words should describe the influence upon every Christian by His Christ.
