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 (Colossians 1:27).
The Spirit, through the Apostle Paul, reveals a very important truth about Christianity in the verse above. He says, “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” To have the vital knowledge, and live with the consciousness that Christ lives in you, is one of the greatest things that could ever happen to you as a Christian. It is, in fact, your solution to all problems and answer to all questions. Christ in you is everything. If He’s not in you, your troubles, struggles, sufferings and problems are “justified.”
Consider the amazing truth in Romans 8:10: “And if Christ be in you, though your body be dead because of sin, the spirit gives it life, because of righteousness.” This means Christ in you is your healing and health, your deliverance, wholeness, and preservation.
The Bible tells a very interesting story about Peter in Acts 9:33-34. Peter was out visiting the brethren, and he got to the house of a man named Aeneas who had been sick of the palsy for eight long years. In that condition, he had received the Gospel and believed in Christ, but was still paralyzed.
Peter looked at the man in his incapacitated state, and said, “Aeneas, Christ makes you well; get up!” Peter didn’t pray for the man to be healed! Peter understood that the one in whom Christ dwells can’t, and shouldn’t, be paralyzed, and he proved it.
As a child of God, because Christ is in you, you have a right to walk out of any pain. You have a right to walk out of darkness. You have a right to walk out of poverty, lack, and want. How do you walk out? It’s simple: Just stop thinking, talking and acting like the man who’s poor, sick, broke or defeated. Right away, renew your mind and start thinking, talking, and acting as one who’s healthy and strong, prosperous, victorious and blessed.
That’s the way to demonstrate your faith in the Word and in the greater One who lives in you. Hallelujah!
