To live and reign
He will continually
And refresh you.
Christ in you is not “the hope to cope”–to just get by as a carnal Christin. He wants to live within you and be “the hope of glory!”
I think that “think” isn’t the right word for how to respond to Christ in you. “Savor” is better. Savor His inner presence and His glory. “O taste and see that God is good.” Savor the risen Savior!
When we surrender to the presence of the living Jesus and let Him live in us and continually direct us from within, we experience ongoing rivers of living water that flow from our innermost being as the fruit of the Spirit and as spiritual gifts. We overflow with His hope and glory, regardless of our outward circumstances.
The more attuned we are to the indwelling Jesus and His inner Light, the more the kingdom of God comes to rule and reign within us and through us–His will being done by us as it is in Heaven. Our conscience is activated and directed by His presence, and we eagerly obey it. His Lordship is no longer a theological concept, but a practical, daily reality. He’s no longer just our figurehead but He becomes our literal Head. We not only hear His voice; we do what He says! We are “led by the Spirit.” We “walk in the Spirit. We “live by the Spirit.” We “glory in Christ Jesus.”
