First-Hand Experiences & Benefits Of CHRIST IN YOU
With CHRIST IN YOU, you have tapped into a treasure that has been living in your heart – just waiting to explode with the love of God. I confidently assure you Christ will truly set you free because you are getting it from His Word. Your Christian walk will be the most enjoyable experience you will ever have – walking hand in hand with Christ. The experience will be even better than your initial salvation. I share this with you from first-hand experience. This is reality. Jesus is so very real.
Continue to remember that it is a growth process. We mature step by step, day by day. We are only to rest – rest in His love. Jesus is responsible for producing the fruit. Jesus only looks for our restful availability to share His love to a needy, hurting world.
“Jesus as man did nothing without God.” Jesus stresses this so often in the gospel of John. He lived as man the way God created man to live. This is normal Christian living. When people saw Jesus the man, they saw God the Father in action.
Notice that the people always flocked to Jesus, instead of Him knocking/witnessing door to door. They saw God the Father in action in Jesus the man. We have the same opportunity. Jesus as God in us desires our availability not ability. People will flock to you because you will be giving them life – the true life of God clothed in your flesh and blood. You will be providing what Jesus came to give – life. You will be spiritually mature to give all the credit and glory to God. You know not to trust your flesh.
This is why it truly is exciting being a Christian – seeing God in action in man. I refuse to let it go to my head. I give it all to Him. It is Jesus living through me. The old Bob is dead. The new Bob is a child of God, and Bob truly desires just to love His Father.
When you do anything, it is simply Christ doing it through you. People will simply be Jesus in you. This will occur consistently as you literally focus and visualize Him in you doing it.
Again, remember you grow to this level. True growth comes only from intimacy with Him. He only causes the growth. The more a believer spends intimacy with Him, being still in the inner man, the more God shows intimate love. Then God will trust the believer more to show His love to the world. God will never share any space with flesh. Many have learned that the hard way through burnout.
I assure you if you continue to focus on CHRIST IN YOU literally living in you, God will elevate you very quickly. You know enough now that you can never trust yourself, your flesh. Unfortunately, many believers have never reached this level.
I would also recommend you spend as much time alone with the Lord as possible. Let the Lord show you what doors in your life He wants to close. What I mean is you probably have many Christian friends and some will be very jealous of your spiritual growth. They will look down on you because you will receive insight that so many of them have been longing for many years.
They will think you should not have the blessings God will give you, but they are wrong. It only matters how real Christ is in your life. So guard His love very well. Use common sense wisdom as the Lord’s leading regarding sharing and fellowship. I lived alone with this treasure for three years. I did not meet one believer who truly understood this riches of Christ in you. Now the fruit is paying off. I have friends whom truly walk this way. I am very grateful.
Remember it is the RESURRECTED CHRIST living in you NOW. Go for it.
