Colossians 1:26-27 (KJV) Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory
When Caleb preached the gospel to Robin and he believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, Robin was really excited because of the good news of the gospel that Caleb made him understand. Caleb made him understand that he was going to inherit God’s eternal kingdom, was going to rule and reign with Jesus on the earth during his millennial reign(Revelation 20:4) and was going to inherit all things that belong to God(Revelation 21:7), only if he would abide in Christ, and let Christ abide in him. Robin had never heard such great news and hope in his life. Prior to that day, he lived a very hopeless life filled with depression, but for some reason, in his heart of heart, he believed what Caleb was saying as he kept opening scripture upon scripture to show him the good news of the glory God had prepared for him in Christ Jesus.
Robin asked Caleb an all-important question. He said: “Caleb, all these things sound too good to be true. How can one be sure that he will not miss out on all this?”
Caleb went on to explain to Robin that the reason we get to inherit God’s kingdom is that we are in Christ and Christ is in us. When God sees us, He sees Christ. That is what makes us joint-heirs with Christ. He explained that as long as we are in Christ and Christ dwells in us, God cannot reject us because He cannot reject His son. Caleb also explained that God has given us the Holy Spirit as a seal and proof, and we receive the promise of the Holy Spirit is proof that every other thing God has promised will come to fruition.
Christ in us is indeed our only hope of glory. Christ dwells in us through the Holy Spirit. He rules and reigns in the lives of those who inhabit Him. One way to be sure that Christ dwells in you is that you will be under His authority. He will literally call the shots in your life, and you will know it. You may lose the whole world, but as long as you don’t lose Christ, you’ve not really lost.
Go into today remembering that the secret to inheriting eternal life is abiding in Christ and Christ in us.
Prayer: Lord, let the words I say and the things I do demonstrate my submission to your authority.
