Christ Dwells In You

August 20, 2013

“Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.” - Romans 8:9

It is very important for every child of God to know the essential truth that Christ dwells in every believer. I want you to understand that Christ, Himself, is in Heaven, but also that He lives in us by the Holy Spirit. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to make Christ as real to us as He was to His disciples. The Holy Spirit is the Christian life, and He lives through us because it is impossible for us to do so in the flesh. As children of God, we must trust, rely, and obey the Spirit of God. Not to do so is sin, and it is unwise to live in sin and grieve the Holy Spirit. To restore our fellowship with God, we must confess our sin, and at that moment the Holy Spirit will make Christ real to us again.
