Christ in You

Jesus said, “In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I IN YOU” (John 14:20).

“God willed to 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).

If we keep thinking of Jesus as outside of us, then we’ll think we have to do something to get to Him, to stay with Him, and to follow Him.  But if we think of Him as He is, happily at home inside us, then we’ll look for Him there.  And the shear beauty is that when we look for Him there, we will find Him.  We will find Him in us full of life and love and joy; a life, love, and joy that we have the pleasure of expressing as He lives His life through us.  He is the one who came to us and who stays with us.  There is no following at a distance, no matter how small.
