I sat on a plane a few years ago seated next to one of the fastest runners in all of Kenya. The thought came to me; if I could have found a way for him to live inside me, I would have been one of the fastest runners of Kenya. Obviously, this was not an option. This may sound crazy, but if you are a true believer in Jesus, He does live within you! Let me explain.
The Scriptures tell us, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me (Galatians 2:20).” What an amazing statement. Christ actually lives within us when we receive Him into our life! The Christian life is not us trying to be like Jesus, but instead it is allowing Jesus to live his life through us. This is where faith comes in.
So my challenge for you today is, if you are a true believer in Jesus, then expect Him to live His life through you today as you continue to surrender to Him! It is all a matter of perspective.
