Christ in me
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
The work of the Spirit of God is not always a mystery as it says in Colossians – God has chosen to make it known – i.e. not a mystery any more.
So In preparation for leading bibleclass tonight, my collection of verses on the spirit of God and Christ that dwells within believers is as follows.
The ‘Indwelling’ God
Ezekiel 36:27 (collective)
Ezekiel 37:14 (collective)
1 John 2:14
1 John 4:12
1 John 4:15
The ‘Indwelling’ Christ
2 Cor 4:11
2 Cor 13:5
Is it the same thing? Well, It seems to be the same power and Romans 8:9-11 uses the ‘spirit of Christ’ and ‘spirit of God’ interchangeably, so it would seem to be the case.
God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.
Are we prepared to believe what the bible says in the bits we might be a little uncomfortable with?
