“…I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”   (Col. 1:25-27)

What amazing truth – The Lord Jesus Christ lives in believers, if you are a believer let me restate that… The Lord Jesus Christ lives in you.   Think about Who it is that is who lives in you and what that means for your life…

·         Christ – The anointed One – He was chosen, promised, provided
·         Christ – The all knowing One- He knows enough to get you through
·         Christ – The all wise One –He knows what to do with the information He has
·         Christ – Everywhere One – He is never taken by surprise
·         Christ – The all loving One – He has the best of intentions for you
·         Christ-  The all gracious One – He is generous with  you
·         Christ – The always with you One – He will never abandon you.
·         Christ  – The all faithful One – He will never let you down
·         Christ – The sympathetic  One – He understands you
Not only is it amazing that HE lives in you.  Think about the reality that He lives in YOU!  Think about you for the moment…
·         You the unlikely
·         You the undeserving
·         You the previously unknowing
·         You who have hope through Him
·         You who have a divine hope since it is Him
All of the above brings us to a simple point are you living and serving as if (for He is) Jesus is within you?  I mean really within you?  I mean really within you right this moment?  I mean really within you right this moment and always?  I confess I often don’t but thank you Paul for the reminder from Colossians 1:25-27.
