Align & shine (#018)Jan 10, 2023
Notice what Paul wrote about the life of Christ in the believer.
He declared, “For me to live is Christ” (Philippians 1:21).
And, “I… no longer live… Christ lives in me” (Galatians 2:20).
In other words, you are the same as Christ on this earth.
“As He is,” the apostle John concluded, “so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
Think about light….
We are told to walk in the light, as He is Light (see 1 John 1:7)
We read this multiple times in the New Testament— Jesus is Light (see also John 1:7). He even said Himself, “I am the Light of the world” (John 8:12).
In like manner, we read that you are light (see Ephesians 5:8). In fact, Jesus Himself declared it: “You are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14).
You were originally created in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26-27). There is no part of the past, including pitfalls you’ve fallen (or even jumped!) into that the Cross and Resurrection have not permanently resolved.
To encounter you is to encounter Him. Because of the Cross, the old nature is gone and you have a new nature— His nature. In fact, the Bible tells us that you live His very life... or, that He lives that life through you.
How do we experience this?
Well, we reorder our lives around His presence and power, shifting to the priorities of the Kingdom.
In this episode of the podcast, Kent takes us back the “big rocks” analogy— you’ve probably seen it before. He shows us what happens when we start aligning our lives with the Kingdom…
When we do that, we live from what’s ALREADY inside…
… it (finally) has the ability to shine forth.
