CHRIST IN YOU

CHRIST IN YOU

My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ.

(Colossians 2:2)

Many times we find good people who are caught in the web of false teachings and doctrines while in their pursuit of knowledge and understanding of God; which is the leading cause of the increase in religion and even denominations we see. Curiosity gets the better of many in their zeal and they ultimately begin to misinterpret or misquote the scriptures. Paul, the writer of the epistle desires for the present-day church, just like the church in Laodicea to come into full understanding and knowledge of Christ.

    The revelation of Christ in the scriptures is of two manifolds; the first is power, and the second is wisdom. Christ showed great power in the workings of the supernatural and in the fulfillment of his redemptive work, and he showed great wisdom in the way he taught the gentiles, raise disciples, and schooled the Pharisees alongside the teachers of the law. Believers today are constantly taught that they have the God nature, and as such, have the fullness of the God body in Christ and can replicate the works of Christ. Many however are confused as to how best to manifest this innate potential. 

The first thing to know is that you have been given the same software Christ operated with, which is the holy spirit. In knowing that you have the holy spirit, you are confident of an operating system that allows you to function optimally just like Christ. The second thing to know is that the wisdom of God is different from the intellectualism of the world. The spirit of God is the wisdom of God that has been given to man, to help man walk in the will and the way of God, to assist man to become all that God has called him to be and to enable man to access the realm of the spirit and cause supernatural things to happen.

   Dear believer the fullness of the power and wisdom of God has been placed in you from the point where you believed. What you received is not a trial version software, but a complete operating system software. The holy spirit in you is your access to the wisdom and power of God. The belief you have in Christ is your guarantee to manifest all that you desire in God. Know this today brethren, you’re not just called to manifest God’s power, you have the full ability to manifest both the power and the wisdom of God. This you can do by the holy spirit working in you. Live in the balance and don’t cheat yourself out of all that God has called you to be.

FURTHER READING: JOHN 16: 12-15

DECLARATION: I declare that I am opened up to the fullness of God. I have the wisdom and the power of God in me and it is made manifest by the enablement of the Holy spirit.

THERE IS LOVE IN SHARING
