Christ In You
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.
Do you ever get involved in a good mystery story, intrigued by the twists and turns, trying to figure it out until, in the final scene, you discover whodunit?
God has revealed one great mystery to us, a mystery which had previously lain hidden for centuries:
Christ in us, our hope of glory.
This is the great secret of Christianity.
Christ doesn’t just go before us as a leader; beside us as an encourager; behind us as a teacher, pointing the way we should go; or above us as a counselor to whom we turn in times of need.
He is all of that, but—far, far more—
He is Christ within us as the regenerator, the transformer, the sanctifier, and the strengthener who provides all we ever need.
When the ever-living Christ with His supernatural, wonder-working power comes into the heart of the most hardened sinner, He transforms that sinner into a new person.
We must all have Christ in us.
Only those who allow Christ to reign in their hearts will enter Paradise.
