Word of the day: Colossians 1:27 – Christ in you, Christ in me

Colossians 1:27 – NKJV – To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

 

Colossians 1:27 – NLT – For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.

 

Colossians 1:27 – AMP – God [in His eternal plan] chose to make known to them how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in and among you, the hope and guarantee of [realizing the] glory..

 

Colossians 1:27 – GNB – God’s plan is to make known his secret to his people, this rich and glorious secret which he has for all peoples. And the secret is that Christ is in you, which means that you will share in the glory of God.

 

Colossians 1:27- ESV – To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

 

Key: Christianity is not about principles; it’s about Jesus. All that you need is in Christ Jesus. The riches and glory of God are all hidden in Him. He is the completeness of everything. 

 

Thus, if Christ is in you, you have the glory and riches of the Father. 

 

Action: Christ in you is the key to the deep secrets, riches and the glory of God. But if you are yet to accept and believe in Him, do so today, so that you can be partaker of the glory embedded in Christ Jesus. 

 

Stay Blessed
