The Holy Spirit teaches each one of us about Jesus, so that we may see Him clearly and accurately. The goal of our lives should be to know Him as He is, for only then can we represent Him faithfully.
As Jesus has dealt with each one of us in love and mercy, He desires us to reach out in that same manner to those who don’t yet know Him as their Savior. In fact, Jesus’ very own love and mercy emanates from the Christ who lives within each one of us!
Here are a few Scripture verses that support this concept:
But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the spirit is life because of righteousness. (Rom 8:10) This would be more accurately translated: “But since Christ is in you . . .”
I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. (Gal 2:20)
Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Col 1:27)
We cannot have spiritual life without the One who is Life—Jesus Christ. Jesus told us Himself that He is the Way, Truth, and Life. (John 14:6)
Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. (1 John 5:12)
Since we are so honored and blessed as to have the Source of Life living within, let’s share Him freely and unashamedly with everyone whom we meet—pouring out His love and mercy upon all.
