Are you getting it? Are you getting who you are In Christ? The fundamental revelation that God gave to the apostle Paul! It was this revelation that even the great apostle Peter said that some of Paul’s teachings were “hard to understand”.
The reason he said that is because this truth causes us to see things the way our Father sees us and not the way we see ourselves. It was in regard to this truth that Paul said “because of the abundance of revelations there was given to me a thorn in the flesh the messenger of Satan”. This revelation was so life changing that the devil knew if it ever became common knowledge to believers it would shut his kingdom down cold in their lives!
Jesus referred to it in His prayer in John 17 when He said “the glory you gave me, I have given them”. The ultimate result of us being “In Christ” is the releasing of the Christ within us both in our Godly character, AND in the power of His resurrection, in miracles and healings and sign and wonders, to a world that desperately craves the supernatural, but as the old song says they’re “looking for love in all the wrong places”.
Truly, as Romans 8 says, the whole creation groans and travails waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God! That’s us! That’s the new man on the inside made “In Christ”! Lets release that guy! Lets speak like him and act like him and walk like him! That’s what it means to be the “glorious” church… and that’s what our Father is waiting for!
