Colossians 1:26-28 (NIV)
26 the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. 27 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.
28 He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.
I have heard so many preachings on this my entire life. Its really amazing how a person can become desensitized because they hear something over and over again. This is the reason why a new convert will take off running with this revelation and the classic christian will warm the pew and not do much more.
Our faith cannot be compared to any other religion in the world. Our Savior, gave his very life in our place so we would have a way to be redeemed. His sacrifice and resurrection purchased a way for us to escape this meaningless existence and become one with God.
In the Gospels, we see when a man comes to Jesus asking healing for his son. The boy was having seizures and the disciples could not heal him. It seems that the disciples didn’t have enough faith to cast out the spirit of infirmity, according to Jesus. Jesus rebuked the spirit and IMMEDIATELY the boy was healed.
I pray that the Holy Spirit will reveal Jesus to us in such a real way that we can walk in the same power. Christ LIVES in us. The Jesus that conquered death is alive within us and we can manifest his life through ours. No other religion in the world can boast this type of power on earth. Believers that are truly able to become one with this revelation are those that (in my opinion) are used in healing the sick. They literally become Jesus on earth.
The treasure in you is priceless….Lets walk in that reality as the Holy Spirit reveals the mysteries of God to us.
