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 greatest thing that could ever happen to any human person is to know and have Jesus Christ in his life; He’s the solution to all problems, and answer to all questions. A man’s problems are “excusable” only if he doesn’t have Christ living in him; only then can his complaints and frustrations be “justified.” If Christ is in you, you have no reason for failure in life; you have no excuse for defeat.
Christ in you is not some imagination or fable; it’s a reality. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” The Spirit of God, who is the conveyor of the blessings of God, and of all that’s been given to us in Christ Jesus, lives in you. Become conscious of this truth, and proclaim it all the time.
Romans 8:10 gives us an idea of the supernatural impact of Christ in you: “And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin but the spirit is life because of righteousness.” This is awesome! It means that as one in whom Christ dwells, no sickness, disease, or infirmity can ravage your body. Besides, even if your body has been so bruised, broken, or paralyzed by sickness, the Spirit will give it life—revitalize it—because of righteousness. This brings to mind what Peter did when he encountered a certain man named Aeneas, who had been paralyzed for eight long years.
In that condition of paralysis, Aeneas received the Gospel and believed in Jesus Christ. Peter looked at him, and all he said was, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ makes you well; get up”; and that was it! Aeneas was healed instantly by the power of God (Acts 9:33-34). Peter didn’t pray for him; why? He realized that Christ was all Aeneas needed.
Christ in you, is your hope of health, success, strength, prosperity, progress, and excellence. Christ in you means glory in your life! Blessed be God!
