..Just as God said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; And I will be their God, and they shall be My people. (2 Cor. 6:16 NAS)
God’s purpose through the ages has been to dwell and live amongst His people. He has fulfilled this purpose in Christ Jesus, through the promise of the Holy Spirit that dwells in us. Christianity is not human efforts to please a holy God. It is Christ dwelling in men and women, and living through them.
God’s desire is to make you a visible expression of His invisible qualities. Until this time, creation has been revealing the invisible qualities of God. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:20 NAS). When Jesus came, He was God Himself manifested in the flesh. Today, Christ lives in the believer, by the Holy Spirit, so that His life and works will be seen through them. All we have to do is to yield to His Spirit, and walk in His Word. Whenever we do His Word under the guidance of the Spirit, Christ is manifested. Yield your life to God today.
Ponder upon the verse above. Are you conscious that God dwells inside of you? Do you know your hands are His hands? Say those words to yourself again and again. Declare “Christ dwells in me and is living through me as me!”
Thank the Father for giving us such a blessing, of His presence. Ask Him to make you more conscious of the Spirit’s presence in you.
You are the “Christ” that your neighbors will see. Be a living book for the world to read and see the life and work of Christ through you today. Believe. Act. Continue living in it.
