All the prophets looked forward to this day – it was kept from everyone until Jesus came to reveal this mystery of God.
Then Paul alludes to it from time to time but comes out clear as a bell in his letter to the Colossians – –
“This message was kept secret for centuries and generations past, but now it has been revealed to God’s people. For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.”
We, as God walks with us, know this to be true. Christ does live in us. That is why some of our evangelical friends invite people to accept Jesus Christ into their lives or some even say to ask Him into your heart.
This is important to us because it is His presence within us that gives us assurance that we will share in His glory – we will be where He is – where else would we rather be?
That always begs the question – if you are not walking with God, who are you walking with?
