Christ in Me

But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:” Galatians 3:15-16 KJV

The gospel is simply Christ in me, the hope of glory. Present day evangelism does not know this — it only knows ‘Come to Jesus.’ But we have not truly responded deeply enough until we have begun to purposely ‘see’ the mystery — Christ in ourselves. This calls for me to be willing to be seen (not just waiting on whatever, but actively moving in His glory), so He can be seen. It is not the elimination of me, but the becoming of me into His form, nature, image, reflection, and manifestation; to be the miracle of the incarnation — to have Christ revealed in me and through me. This is the gospel! 

Paul is not talking about behavior modification, but behavior transformation. The life of faith in His glory called me to die to all I thought I would become and purposely submit to His person (the Holy Spirit) in me that this Lord of mine can been known, seen, and heard though His incarnation in me. 

“But we all, with open face beholding as in glass the glory of the Lord, are changed (transformed) into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:13-14 KJV. 

Now we also press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus — Christ in me the hope of glory! May He be unfolded and manifested in every thought and movement as we press forward into this mystery revealed in us
