The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple.” Colossians. 1:27 The Message What does Jesus look like living in you …?
Your sin will not drive Him away from you. He knows what you are made of trys to trip you up when you are not providing care to Jesus isn’t going to wring his hands together .. walk off and avoid you .. and/or interrogate you for hours on hour. He is the Only One who knows what sin really does inside of you. He knows how it will alienate you. He knows He is never caught off guard or sleeping. He’s just not “trying to catch you” upside down in your heart and mind. He’ll be your strength and also the One who will revive you .. restore you .. and reaffirm your calling to be His son’s and daughters. You’ll find yourself trusting Jesus as He leads you along difficult paths. It is this simple and yet it really takes a moment …
So, if you find life difficult because you’re doing what God said, take it in stride. Trust him. He knows what he’ s doing, and he’ll keep on doing it. 1 Peter: 4:19 The Message
