For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

Colossians 1:27 NLT

Do you know there's something about us that the world doesn't really know? There's something about us in Christ, that even many Christians haven't grasped yet. Some who know they're born again don't really understand the true implication of what that means for them.

Remember the words of Jesus in John 14:10, "my Father who lives in me, He does the work. How interesting. We know that God the Father lives in heaven. But here Jesus reveals a secret the Jews didn't know. They couldn't even grasp it.

But what's more beautiful today is that we also have a similar secret. We are not just human people. We are actually temples. Every person in Christ is a temple. A real moving temple. And we are not empty.

This is the secret, Christ lives in us! Christ lives in you! This is why we share in His glory, because when He came into us, He came in His glory. We are not ordinary human beings. The world does not know this. But you must grab it. That you're a temple. The temple of Christ our Lord.

Prayer: Dear Father, I thank you for choosing to live in me as your home. I know I can never be the same again. I thank you because you've changed my life, you're building me up, to be the kind of home you want to dwell in. Thank you Lord in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
