Christ in You. The Hope of Glory

Christ in You. The Hope of Glory..png

Jesus Christ lives in all of us who have repented of our sins and believed His Gospel: His death for our sins, His burial, and His resurrection.

Once Christ lives in you, you have the power of Christ to live for Christ and to become more and more like Him – this is the great goal of our sanctification – Philippians 2:12.

Because Christ lives in us, He is our hope of glory – that one day we will be with Him in heaven. Christ is our hope of glory; we have no hope outside of Christ living in us.

If Christ is not in you, you have no hope of glory or of going to heaven.

Christ in you means that He lives in you. When Christ lives in you, He takes charge over your heart, your emotions, your attitudes, your thoughts, your speech, and your behavior.

You cannot remain the same when Jesus lives inside of you. Those who never change do not have Christ living inside of them. Christ is both the Initiator of change and the Transformer of our transformation. All this is made possible by His grace.

Is Christ Jesus, the Hope of Glory, living inside you by faith in His Gospel?

Have you changed?

The Thorn and The Brier

“Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”

Isaiah 55:13

I have sown the thorn and the brier, yet my gracious Master and King has pulled these from the garden of my heart and planted the fir and myrtle in their place. My heart was a landscape of death, but now (by His grace) it is a garden of life – the planting of the Lord.

The replanting of the field of my heart is a generous and gracious gift afforded me through Christ. He can do the same for you, my friend – He can change your heart as well.

There is no one that Christ cannot redeem.

God’s grace is more than a theory; it is, indeed, a fact of heaven and proven again and again on this earth. Transformed lives are the reality of its power.

Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we can become new creations – old things have passed away; behold, all things are become new – 2 Corinthians 5:17.

No one is worthy of this great kindness, no one is worthy of this great love, and no one is worthy of this great mercy.

By His grace, we change.

It is He who justifies all repentant believers by faith in Christ’s death and resurrection; seeing we have been justified by faith, we should humbly rejoice in the Lord, always.

What fruits are produced from the garden of your heart? Are they thorns and briers or firs and myrtles?

Jesus can transform anyone’s life; He can change your heart. He can cultivate His beauty within you through the power of His Spirit received by faith in His Gospel.

Thank you, Jesus

May you know Christ’s grace and truth.
