The Master's Plan, Part I
HIS PURPOSE FOR OUR DESTINY
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27
Many in the body of Christ never know what the true riches and mysteries are that God has made available to those who have chosen to follow Jesus because of tradition, man-centered doctrine and denomination. If they truly knew and understood what they possessed they would be the most powerful entity in the world.
To receive the revelation that the Christ, the anointed One of God actually lives within us and desires to lead His life in us, is to many, nothing more than a fairy tale or a science fiction fable. It would be like Mary first realizing that she was made pregnant by the Holy Spirit and in fact that is what happens to us as we become new creations in Christ, the Spirit of the living God indwells us. Now His purpose of living His life through us becomes our destiny for Him to fulfill His divine mission in the earth to establish the kingdom of God!
We are not here to build up men's kingdoms of flesh to put a church on every corner, but to become co-workers with Christ in unity with one another to establish and expand the kingdom of God in the earth. We have been given the most important commission ever given to belong to the Savior of the world and to allow Him to live in us!
As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6,7
