To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27
One of the definitions found for the word ‘mystery’ intrigued me this morning; any truth that is unknowable except by divine revelation. Interesting! The mystery of ‘Christ in me’ is something only revealed by God to seekers.
As I was sharing this yesterday, God began to peel back the layers of this to me. Unless we believe He is in us, we will never see the manifested power of God displayed through us. We must believe that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, lives in us. That’s powerful.
Jesus said, “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
The word ‘follow’ denotes movement. If we’re not moving, signs can’t follow. Why aren’t we moving? What are we waiting on? God? He’s in us! He’s given us everything we will ever need and placed it in us. Healing? In us! Provision? In us! Power? In us!
It’s time to plug into the power in us and move out of our comfort zone, out of the 4 walls of the church building and truly believe He is in us! You may not have faith in you, but have faith in the God in you and MOVE! Signs and wonders will never follow people who are sitting still, observing others who are moving. Join the race! Come run with me!
