“To whom God would have made known what is the riches of the Glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of Glory” – Colossians 1:27
LIGHT FOR NOW: Christ in you is the hope of Glory
The mystery behind every believer is Christ in Him, which is the hope of Glory. In other words, once you receive Christ into your life, you become a carrier of God’s glory. The strength of the Christian faith is Christ in Him. Our text for today tells us that when Christ lives in a Man, he becomes a partaker of God’s glory. So, a believer in Christ Jesus does not hope for the worst in life. No! The hope of every believer is Glorious. Hallelujah! What defines your hope is not any kind of situation or condition you are facing but Christ does.
Remember that Christ Jesus was reproached so that you might be glorified. You must be consistent in what you hoping for. Hope is the confident expectation of something. The Bible records in Romans 5:18 that Abraham “against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken”. Also, Apostle Paul in Romans 5:2 say, “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in the hope of the glory of God”. When Christ is not the hope of your glory, you may easily be distracted by the greed for material things. And when your expectations are not met, you may become depressed. In the contrary, when you focus on Christ and not on material things, the joy of the lord becomes your strength. Hallelujah!
