Summary: did you know that Christ is accualy in you to live making His home in you
Christ Living Inn You
When you invited the Lord Jesus into your life, He actually and literally came to live in you.
Christianity is LIFE -- the life of Christ coming into you at the moment you are born again, and then living through your body each moment of each day.
· When I was first saved I knew that Christ was always with me. But did you know that he is accualy in you to live making His home in you.
· Being born again is not imitating Christ; it is the indwelling of Christ.
· It is not trying to live like Christ; it is trusting Christ to live in and through you. Lets look at what Paul said, In Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
". . . Christ in you, the hope of glory" ( ). He also said, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own: For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s." (Corinthians 6:19,20); and "Jesus Christ is in you . . ." (II Corinthians 13:5).
· God’s Word conclusively testifies that when you are BORN AGAIN, the Lord Jesus, as the Holy Spirit, actually comes to live in your body. Failure to realize that Christ lives in you will result in discouragement and defeat.
· If you think of Christ simply being near you, rather than living in you, your constant efforts will be to get closer to Him, or to get Him closer to you. However, the truth is that Christ lives in you!
· Know this!
· Believe this!
· Experience this!
· He is more than a helper to assist you; more than a teacher to instruct you; and more than a friend to encourage you. He does more than give you strength; He is your strength.
· He is your life. ". . . Christ, who is our life . . ." (Colossians 3:4).
· His life replaces your life. As Paul said, ". . . I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me" (Galatians 2:20).
· As Jesus said, ". . . without me you can do nothing." (John 15:5).
· How about when we go places we are not supposed to go. We take Jesus with us in those places. (He never leaves us.)
· "I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." (Galatians 2:20).
