Talk about a mystery! We often think of a mystery as something that needs to be solved. Less often, we use the term to describe something that is unexplainable. That’s definitely the context in Col 1:27, “to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
For all who have received the great invitation of God’s rescue, Christ is in you! As I let that sink in a little bit, it blows me away. Jesus is in me! Jesus is in you! That is powerful beyond words or description. In another one of his Epistles, Paul puts it this way, “the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you.”
If all of this is true, than our road map for the day is not, WWJD, but instead, WIJUTT (What is Jesus Up To Today). What is Jesus up to in my own life as He dwells in me, and what is He up to in the lives of others around me? How can I participate with His Spirit in me today?
It is indeed a mystery, but it is also a unarguable truth, Christ is in us. We are not alone!
