Today’s Truth-Christ In Your! Sunday, April 22nd

Tuesday, 17 April 2012


To whom God will make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Corinthians 1:27).

The revelation of God’s character you have will primarily determine how much of His truth and glory you’ll function in. In the Old Testament, God revealed His character progressively to the children of Israel. To Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, He revealed Himself as ‘’El-Shaddai,’’ meaning, God almighty. They thus function within the ambit of that revelation. Later on, when He met Moses, He said, ‘’…I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God almighty (El-Shaddai), but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them’’ (Exodus 6:3).

Moses had a higher revelation of God, different from that of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. At different times, as he and the children of Israel journeyed through the wilderness, God revealed Himself as ‘’Jehovah Rapha’’; the Lord your Healer (Exodus 15:26), ‘’Jehovah Nissi’’; the Lord our banner (Exodus 17:15) etc. The Lord took them through these progressions of revelations so they could be further enlightened and enabled to function in His greater glory.

Then came Jesus. In Mathew 1:23, when Jesus was born, God revealed Himself to Israel as ‘’Emmanuel’’; meaning ‘’God with us!’’ In Christ, God came as a man and dwelt among them, and they saw His glory (John 1:14). However, as beautiful as these revelations are of the character of God, they only project a limited view of who He is to the Church-the body of Christ. Through the Holy Spirit, God now dwells in you. He’s no longer ‘’Emmanuel’’ (God with us); but ‘’God in us’’

That’s what we read in our opening verse: ‘’Christ in you, the hope of glory.’’ This is today’s truth. If you’ve received the Holy Spirit, God now dwells in you; you’re His operational headquarters! Through you, He now administers life, grace and salvation to a dying and hurting world!

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for your presence in my life, making me your living temple! I carry your ever abiding presence within me everywhere to affect my world; and through me, you make evident the fragrance of your knowledge in every place, in Jesus’ Name: Amen
