Have you ever wondered what it would really be like to literally live the life of Jesus everyday of your life? What would you be like? Really! How would you be different than you are now? Would it be obvious to the people around you?
I really like this passage about Jesus living inside of me. “…this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing His glory/presence.” (Within the context of your ordinary comings and goings.)
Colossians 2:27. Listen to this wonderful truth. The evidence that Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, lives within you is experienced by those in your sphere of influence through your ordinary everyday-ness.
The difference is in our willing awareness that this life I live is His. For example, here are just a few evidences Jesus experienced and expressed that are supernaturally normal for each believer who desires to “live for Christ.” Compassion, serving others, anger at sin, joy in celebrating special blessings, sighing when being deeply tested, weary in well-doing, and so many more. Please be encouraged to continue your journey into Him as He lives out His life in you.
“Not merely in the words you say, Not only in your deeds confessed, But, in the most unconscious way Christ is expressed. Is it a beautiful smile? A “holy light” on your brow? Oh! No, I felt His presence when you laughed just now. For me, it wasn’t the truth you taught, …but you came, you brought a sense of Him. And…from your eyes, He beckons me, and from your heart, His love is shed, Until I lose sight of you and see the Christ instead.”( Author unknown )
