When “Christ in you”
Christ in me,
An incomplete inner connection
Between you and God
Produces a short-circuited life.
No matter how long you preach to loose lightbulbs, without a live connection they’ll stay dark. The body of Christ begins to flow together when Christians allow Jesus to assemble His circuitry and connect them heart to heart. When there’s no radiance of Jesus’ light in our hearts, Christians assemble to sit in the darkness.
Our human, internal circuitry is wired to connect heart to heart with God and with people. Otherwise, we’ll flip an inner circuit breaker. If you’re inwardly disconnected from God, you need inner rewiring, not just an inspiring religious talk.
Attending a religious meeting isn’t a cure for the human longing for belonging. Staying connected to the living Jesus is.
It’s easy to get caught up in Christian sermons, programs, and meetings and fail to notice when Jesus has no active role in them. When you feel wounded or unhappy, a possible cause could be a lack of direct connection with the living God.
To see the gathered body of Christ as a platform and an audience is to overlook the importance of the presence of the risen Jesus. When Christians congregate merely to spectate and not to fully participate with the living Jesus, we negate His presence. When church truly welcomes the living God, it will become holy, loving, and creative like He is.
