CHRIST IS PRESENT IN YOU BY THE SPIRIT

In Matthew 28:20, Jesus promises to be with us always. Now we know that after making this very promise, Jesus physically left the earth, and today He is physically in Heaven; seated at the right hand of the Father. At first glance, it looks like Jesus broke His promise to us, yet Jesus in not liar. True Jesus is no longer physically living in the earth, yet spiritually He still is. The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ and, that the body of the every child of God is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, Jesus is alive and dwelling in every child of God by His Spirit.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

1John 3:24 All who keep His commandments [who obey His orders and follow His plan, live and continue to live, to stay and] abide in Him, and He in them. [They let Christ be a home to them and they are the home of Christ.] And by this we know and understand and have the proof that He [really] lives and makes His home in us: by the [Holy] Spirit Whom He has given us.

DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank you because you are present and alive in me, by the presence of your Holy Spirit, Amen.
