CHRIST IN ME

He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine
and making it known to you.

John 16:14
Our life is drastically different from the unsaved population of the world. It is way different than any of us can even perceive. We taste the edge of what has happened in our lives and it is annihilating. What makes our lives so different? We are actually inhabited by Christ. His Spirit is in us and on us, there couldn’t be anything more profound. The scary thing is this, some people think Christ is in them and are casual about it, how can you be casual about the greatest of all beings, the creator Himself, inhabiting us? He has brought us into the most profound life possible, we share the very life of Christ. His life in us should change everything; our purpose, our loves, the things we enjoy. He has not only given us life, He has become our life. Here are some thoughts from Andrew Murray about this supernatural existence we share.
“The fullness of the Godhead dwelt in Christ in order that the life of the Godhead might dwell in us. All this is in Christ. Our entire life exists in union with Christ. As the branch is in the vine, so we are in Christ and He in us. Each new day we must begin with this conviction: Christ lives in me and the Holy Spirit will make this a reality for me. Count on the quiet, unseen working of the Holy Spirit in your heart. This truth is so profound and so divine that it is almost beyond our grasp. Yet the Holy Spirit, who is God, will reveal it to us. Cling to Christ in childlike faith and trust that the Holy Spirit is at work in you in order that Christ living in you can be a reality. In childlike faith, fix your heart upon Christ on the cross and upon Christ on the throne. As you do this, the Holy Spirit will reveal Christ to you and in you. You will be able to confidently say, ‘Christ lives in me! Christ is my life!’”

So make a choice today, that from this day forward you are going to take advantage of this treasure that has been entrusted to you. Stir up His presence in your life; read your Bible with anticipation, drink in His presence in worship, pray in the Spirit. Make a determination that today, and everyday, you are going to enjoy this life that has been given to you.
