Paul’s Spiritual Secret

 “… And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.” (Colossians 1:27 NLT)

The most important teaching in the New Testament is that Jesus Christ died for our sins. The most dynamic teaching in the New Testament is that Jesus Christ rose from the dead and He lives in us. According to the Apostle Paul, the glorious reality that the risen Christ lives in us gives us the assurance that we can glorify God.

To glorify God means to do that which pleases God. At the end of His perfect life Jesus made the statement, “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work You gave me to do.” (John 17:4) In one of His most profound metaphors, Jesus taught that it is possible for us to be at one with Him the way a branch is at one with a Vine. (John 15:1-16)

It is only because I am in Him and He is in melike a branch is in a Vine, that I can hope and pray to come to the end of my life exclaiming, “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work You gave me to do.”

This means the risen Christ is a Vine looking for branches today. Are you willing to be one of those branches? When you become one, or if you already are a branch, are you finding and finishing the work He wants you to do for Him that glorifies His Father God?

When you bring forth the fruit that remains because you are in Him and He is in you, Jesus has showed you how to make the spiritual secret of Paul your own spiritual secret.
