Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
We’ve all had those moments when we miss something right in front of us. We look everywhere for our keys and then find them in our pocket. We’re certain we have lost our phone only to realize we are holding it in our hand. We miss the obvious.
Too many who claim to follow Christ miss a significant “obvious.” They fail to recognize the truth that Christ dwells within those who call on His name by faith. Jesus didn’t come to take our hand and walk beside us. He came to live His life through us. To submit to Jesus’ lordship and still see Him beside you is to miss what the Bible states plainly – Christ has taken up residence inside of you!
No other religious movement can claim that the living presence of its founder is in its followers. Christianity embraces the amazing certainty that Jesus resides within those who love Him. He is always with us, empowering and transforming us from the inside, out. How great is that! Remember, if you’re a Christ-follower, He has made your heart His home.
Dear God, I confess that Jesus is Lord, and I believe that You raised Him from the dead. Thank You for saving me and making my heart Your home. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
