He Lives In You Fully – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 9th



(Christ In You: The Age-Old Mystery Revealed)

TO THE BIBLE: Colossians 1:26-27 ESV
“The mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

Though Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew God as El Shaddai, God introduced Himself to Moses as Jehovah (Exodus 6). On this was based the hope of the Old Testament, revealed in the name Emmanuel—“God with us.” (Matthew 1:23).

However, God wasn’t really satisfied with being only “Emmanuel”; His plan was different, as revealed to us in Colossians 1:26-27 NIV: “The mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Glory to God!

God’s plan from the beginning wasn’t to be with us or among us but to be in us in His fullness.

You may dance, scream, and rejoice that God is with you, but until the reality and realisation of His indwelling dawn on your spirit, your life will be empty. Your life of glory begins with the realisation that Christ literally lives in you.

We see this in Paul’s beautiful prayer in Ephesians 3:14-19. He prayed, “…That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

That’s God’s plan right there: that you might be filled (replete) with all the fullness of God, as Jesus was filled with the fullness of God.

You have a role in this; otherwise, the Spirit’s prayer through Paul in Ephesians 3:14-18 wouldn’t have been necessary.

That’s why He told you to be filled with the Spirit always, and Ephesians 5:18-20 shows you how: “…Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Hallelujah!

Christ in me is the hope of glory! I’m eternally grateful for the privilege to be filled with the Spirit always for an all-day, all-time life of victory and dominion through the Holy Ghost! I’m led by the Spirit; synchronised with Him to fulfill God’s plan and purpose for my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
