Christ Lives In You!

by Chris D'Amico

We are amazed at the hand of God moving so mightily in these last days. We continue to watch God supply the needs of so many as we travel into churches that are hungry for the Word and move of the Spirit. The very living substance of God’s Spirit is filling, healing, changing and releasing captive for God’s glory. 

Jesus declared in John 10:10. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy: I am come that you MIGHT HAVE LIFE, and that you HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.” The Beck’s Translation declares, “…I am come that they might HAVE LIFE and HAVE IT OVERFLOWING IN THEM.” Jesus came to bring us back to the Father through His precious death, burial and resurrection. So now we can receive the very life of God in our hearts as new creations. 

The greatest miracle of Jesus is the promise of eternal life. Many view eternal life as something we inherit when we pass away, something we receive when we go to heaven. But Jesus came to fill us with the very substance of God Himself to overflowing in this life. John G. Lake once said, “The world is awakening to the marvelous truth, that Christ is not in heaven only, nor in the atmosphere only, but Christ lives in you. Christ’s indwelling in the human heart is the mystery of mysteries.”

In Galatians 2:2, the Apostle Paul said, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, BUT CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: and the life that I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” The Way Translation says, “Yes, I have shared Messiah’s crucifixion: I am living indeed, but it is not I that lives, it is Messiah whose life is in me.” The Abbreviated Translations declares, “I consider myself having died and now enjoying a second existence, which is simply Jesus using my body.” The great mystery is no longer hidden! Jesus has come to dwell in us, to work through us, to carry on His ministry in the earth today. 

I want to encourage you to stop and meditate on Who lives in you right now. Jesus lives in you! The King of Glory, the Conquering Champion of death, hell and the grave has made His home within you. You not only have an eternal home with Christ in the next life, but also His victorious life right now. 1 John 4:4 declares, “Ye are of God little children, and have overcome them: because GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, than he that is in the world.” We love and appreciate you so very much. Thank you for connecting with this ministry.
