Christ Within

I have spent much time lately pondering the knowledge that Christ dwells within our hearts, every increasingly, as we follow Him, submit to Him, love Him.  He dwells within and fills our hearts to overflowing with love, with the Holy Spirit, and it is a blessed thing.  I rest secure in the knowledge that my Savior, precious Savior that He is, dwells within my heart every working a great work within me, and that I dwell in Him every striving to be more like Him and less like this world.  It is hard sometimes to submit myself entirely, the heart is willing but the flesh is weak and sometimes struggle to submit, to keep carrying my cross.  But at those times it’s as if He pours an extra portion of His Spirit and Will upon me that I might overcome.  He never leaves nor forsakes me, I know He is always with me because of the changes wrought within me.  I want this same peace, security and promise for each of you my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ.  That is why I pray for you daily, that you too would be filled to overpouring with the love of the Son, Jesus the Christ in your hearts, much as Paul did in this passage from Ephesians.

 

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.  Ephesians 3:14-21
