(Christ Has Set Up His HeadQuarters In You)
TO THE BIBLE John 14:23 AMPC
“Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him.”
LET’S TALK ➡
I’ve always known for a long time that wherever I am is God’s headquarters because Jesus said He and the Father would make their abode in the heart of the one who loves Him and keeps His Word. As I meditated on this, several years ago in prayer, Jesus became so real to my spirit, and I understood what Paul meant when He said, “For the love of Christ compels us…” (2 Corinthians 5:14).
Colossians 1:26-27 AMPC says, “The mystery of which was hidden for ages and generations [from angels and men], but is now revealed to His holy people (the saints), to whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of [realizing the] glory.” This is the secret of the ages. This is the key: Christ in you.
This was what Jesus meant when He said what He said in John 14:23. You become a Christ-in-you person. Christ takes up His abode in the quarters of your heart. Where will that take you? Let’s read Colossians 1:28-29: “Him (Christ) we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.” The Apostle Paul understood this and acknowledged that he functioned with “…all the superhuman energy which He (Christ) so mightily enkindles and works…” within him (Colossians 1:29 AMPC).
No wonder he said, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). With this consciousness, you realize that certainly, nothing is impossible, because anything is possible. It’s all about Christ in you, working in, and through you. You’d never have to struggle for anything, because He’s working mightily in you, causing everything you do to succeed. The secret, however, is loving Him. When you do, He’ll set up His headquarters with you, and your life will be from glory to glory; you’ll become fruitful and productive in all things.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
2 Corinthians 5:15
and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for setting up your headquarters in me, and making me your centre of operation. You’ve made me a success for life because I love you and keep your Word; I acknowledge your mighty power that’s at work in me mightily; and I thank you for your glory in my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
