THE MYSTERY OF ‘CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY.’
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the HOPE of glory. Col 1:27.
The mystery of ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory’ has never been understood by many including me until this day that the Lord has opened my eyes as He did to Abraham to see the lamb. It’s a mystery that will change our lives forever if we will grasp and live with the ‘Christ in you’ conviction.
Before we get deep into this mystery let’s check hope and glory. Hope means we are always ready for new and great things even though we cannot fathom how. The answer is ‘Christ in you.’ Glory means to praise (speak in honour of), to honour (good name, self-respect, something increasing one’s good name or self-respect) and it also means fame (state of being known by all).
Christ means the anointed one, meaning Christ in you makes you anointed. This means that all He was, you are. To proof this, He (Jesus) said anyone who has faith in Him will do what He was doing. He will do even greater things than these, because He was going to the Father. John 14:12. This means that Jesus came to show us how ‘Christ in you’ works, all the miracles are in you, all the knowledge, wisdom, understand, power etc. are in you.
Why can’t we do it then? Answer; now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, ACCORDING to His power that is at WORK within us. Eph 3:20. Christ is in us in His fullness but not all Christ is at work within us, for He can only act according to His power that is at work within us. How much of Christ is at work in you? If His power at work in you is not up to that which was at work in Jesus, you won’t be able to do what He was doing and this is where most of us are operating, below average.
Christ in Jesus brought unto Him honour, praise, He was known by all, there was hope for Him even in the grave, not because of Him as Jesus, but because of the Christ in Jesus. Christ in you will bring you to a place of being praise, a place of being honoured, a place of being known by all and there is hope for you even in death. Stay tune for more in Jesus name.
