The Indwelling Christ


Jesus as the son of God was conceived by Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary and the very Life of Christ was conceived in you by Holy Spirit. According to the good pleasure of His will God has sent forth the Spirit of His son to dwell in your heart (Inner-man).

God has birthed Christ Life in your Spirit which was once dead by reason of Adam’s sin but now is alive in Christ Jesus! 2 Corinthians 5:17; Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away : behold all things become new. Your old man is dead, it was crucified with Christ (Romans 6:6) so that the body of sin might be destroyed.

The Father did not call you by His Spirit , cleanse you of your sins and then leave you to live your own life and serve Him the best you can. God has placed His life and the very Life of His Holy eternal son within you. Just as Jesus lived His whole life by the indwelling Father, you are to live your life through Christ that lives and dwells in you!

Just as your physical body cannot live without food and nourishment , neither can your spirit live unless you feed it- drawing the Life and nourishment from Christ. There must be a continual dependence on Christ , a continual drawing of strength, a continual “abiding” in Him and His word. Beloved it is in this union with Him that His life can be lived in and through you!

Jesus lived His life on earth by the Father who sent Him. He said, And He that sent me is with me: The Father has not left me alone (John 8:29). I am in the Father and the Father is in me ( John 14:10). Jesus words, His actions, His works, were the result of the Father living in Him. Jesus said, the words that I speak unto you , I speak not of myself : But the Father that dwells in me He doth the works (John 14:10).

Because God has made you one of His sons, you can now live your life through Christ who dwells in you. And because God dwells in Christ, He also dwells in you! Jesus said, If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode with him ( John 14:23). It is this perfect union, God the Father dwelling in Christ, Christ the son of God dwelling in you that you are able to live the express image of Christ on the earth.

Colossians 2:9-10; For in Him all the fullness of Deity (the Godhead) dwells in bodily form [completely expressing the divine essence of God]. 10 And in Him you have been made complete [achieving spiritual stature through Christ], and He is the head over all rule and authority [of every angelic and earthly power]. Jesus prayed that we would all come into the unity in Him that they all may be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, (JOHN 17:21).

I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me ( John 17:23). Beloved when you get this revelation of unity with God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit living in you, you will begin to live the Life of Jesus, a life of power, a life without limits. You will begin to let Christ live His Life through you! You will begin to walk like Him, talk like Him, heal like Him and set all the captives free as He did when He walked the earth.
