To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory – Colossians 1:27
Colossians 2:9 tells us that in Christ Jesus dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; that includes the Father, and the Holy Spirit. This is the reason when you call the Name Jesus, the Holy Spirit, who is the power of God and the doer of God’s works, goes into action. He answers to that Name. Colossians 1:19 (AMP) says, “For it has pleased [the Father] that all the divine fullness (the sum total of the divine perfection, powers, and attributes) should dwell in Him permanently.”
Jesus never needed to get wisdom, knowledge or power from anywhere else but inside Him. “In Him are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”(Colossians 2:3). He never needed more of God, because the totality of Deity was inside Him. This is the quality of the Person of Jesus; He is “loaded” with God! No wonder He declared of Himself: “For even as the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent, so He has given to the Son to have life in Himself and be self-existent”(John 5:26 AMP). He is everything that God is.
In the same vein, if you’ve received Christ into your life, you have everything! Christ in you is all you need! You don’t need the source for wisdom, knowledge or power from outside anymore; look inwards! The Bible says you’re complete in Christ(Colossians 2:10); that means you’re perfected in Him, who is the full representation or icon of the Godhead. There’s nothing lacking or missing in your life today, because there’s nothing you didn’t get in Christ Jesus.
This is the real meaning of Christmas; it’s the celebration of the life of Christ in you. Christmas means much more than the birth of the infant Jesus in a manger; it’s the celebration of Christ and all that we are and have in Him. The Word declares that as He (Jesus) is, so are we in this world(1 John 4:17). In Christ, we have everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Let this mind be in you as you celebrate today.
I’d like to invite you to make Him your Lord and personal Savior right now if you haven’t done that yet. He came to save you by offering His own blood as your sins sacrifice. Click here for more.
Christ, the embodiment of all knowledge, wisdom and power is alive and exalted in me, working and touching lives through me! I manifest His wisdom, ability and power; and I’m full of His might today! Blessed be God!
