"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 1:27 KJV)
“Christ in you” isn’t a religious cliché. It’s a divine reality, but many haven’t understood the power and import of that reality. That’s the reason for the headaches and fevers they complain of; that’s why they wake up with cancer, diabetes, and all such anomalies in their physical bodies. How could you be sick, if indeed, Christ indwells your physical body?
Before Christ came, all men were under the curse of sin, and were therefore subject to Satan, condemnation, sickness, disease, poverty and death. The Bible says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). This was the consequence of man’s fall in the Garden of Eden. But guess what? The glory that was lost by sin, was restored in Christ! Therefore, if Christ is in you, then glory is the result: glory in your health, in your finances, in your work, family and every area of your life. Hallelujah!
Your life, now that you’re born again, is for glory only. This should be your consciousness; otherwise, you’ll live an ordinary life. Let Christ manifest Himself in you, through the Word and the Holy Spirit. Become “Christ-in-me” conscious. Meditate on Christ: who He is, who He is to you, and in you, and His ministry in you today! Christ isn’t around you or near you; neither is He merely with you; He’s in you. That’s the greatest thing in the world. Praise God for evermore!
CONFESSION "I belong in a special class of divine beings—“the Christ-in-me species!” This is my assurance of a life of continuous triumph and eternal glory. The power, beauty and excellence of divinity are resident in my spirit. I manifest the life and glory of Christ. Hallelujah!"
