"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." Colossians 1:22
Where is Jesus? The Bible says He is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven. But He is also "in us". He has made His abode within these "tabernacles" of clay. We are His dwelling place. Not only is He at residence within us, but so is His Kingdom. (I think we tend to forget that.)
Christ in you and His Kingdom in you, means that the very God who created the universe, who calls the stars each by name, who spoke into nothing and everything that exist appeared lives inside of you. It is the same God who is Omnipotent (All-powerful), Omniscient (All-knowing), Omni-present (present everywhere at the same time). He has all wisdom, love beyond measure, peace that passes understanding, truth and justice. He is the Savior, the Healer, the Deliverer, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the victorious, conquering King. There is no lack, no weakness, no failure, no inability in Him. There is nothing He cannot do (except lie) and nothing He does not know.
We need to remember Who He is and where He is. For our sake, and for the world's sake who needs the God that is in you. They need the hope that only comes through Him. They need His peace. They need to experience His grace. They need Him but don't know it.
"I must decrease, He must increase." "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." (Galatians 2:20) We don't only need to remember He is in us, but we need to allow Him to live through us and touch others who are lost and hurting. Our life should be His life lived out on earth.
Have a great day. Jesus is in you, so let Him live through you.
