“For many years I missed the truth. I believed all the other prepositions: Christ for me, with me, ahead of me. And I knew I was working beside Christ, under Christ, with Christ. But I never imaged that Christ was in me.
I can’t blame my deficiency on Scripture. Paul refers to this union 216 times. John mentions it 26. They describe a Christ who not only woos us to himself but “ones” us to himself. ‘Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.’ (I John 4:15)…………A Christian is a person in whom Christ is happening.”…..from Max Lucado’s book, GRACE.
Please share the ways Christ is abiding in you, how Christ “is happening” in you…….or not. Or how you’ve seen this in others?
In any case, it’s important to know, good to remember; even better to feel it, to ‘live it.’
Have a blessed Sunday.
