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)

In 2 Corinthians 5:17, the Apostle Paul articulates a profound truth about the new creation and salvation. It says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Observe he says, “…if any man be in Christ…”; salvation is you in Christ!

We see another truth in Colossians 1:26-27. There, he beautifully encapsulates the very essence of Christianity: “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.”

Now, while salvation is you in Christ, Christianity is Christ in you. Christianity is Christ alive and manifested in you every day. No wonder in Ephesians 5:30, Paul tells us something so profound: “For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.” This powerful imagery reinforces the inextricable union we have with Christ.

1 Corinthians 6:15 NKJV says, “Do you not know that your bodies are the members of Christ…?” In other words, your limbs are the limbs of Christ. Your hands, feet and voice are all imbued with His presence and power. When you speak, it’s Christ speaking through you. When you minister to others, it’s Christ ministering to them through you.

The Master Himself declared, “He that heareth you heareth me…” (Luke 10:16). This is the profound reality of Christ in us. Therefore, knowing this truth, you can boldly proclaim, “Every fibre of my being, every bone of my body,every cell of my blood, from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet, is all fully inundated with the life of God.”

You’re the embodiment of God’s glory; everywhere you go, you carry His presence and manifest His glory. You have the privilege of being the conduit of divine verities.

PRAYER
Dear Father, thank you for the blessing of having the fullness of Christ in me. I live in the consciousness of your glory, and your presence shines through me, blessing others and glorifying your Name, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

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:

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
