Rhapsody of Realities: Christmas Is Christ Alive In You

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

The exciting thing about Christmas is the purpose for which Jesus was born; the reason He came. He came that you might have life—the God-life—to the full. Jesus

didn’t come to establish a new religion; neither did He come to show us an example of how to live the good life. He came to make us sons of God. John 1:12 says, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”

God’s desire was for us to have His kind of life, and His plan, according to the Scriptures, was for Jesus to give us this life. 1 John 5:11-12 says, “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.”

The Apostle Paul referenced something very powerful and significant about the Christ-life in us in Colossians 1:26-27. He writes, “Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

Have you ever tried to imagine what Christ living in a man really means? If Jesus Christ, who opened blind eyes, unstopped deaf ears, gave the lame new legs to walk, healed the maimed, and raised the dead, truly lives in you, what should that make you? It means you’re invincible; a superman; and an extraordinary success; a victor forever! This

is what makes Christmas special; it’s Christ alive in you. He came for you, to live in you, and to live through you.

PRAYER: Dear Father, I thank you for the gift of your Son Jesus, whom you sent to give me eternal life. I have eternal life in my spirit, because I’ve received Christ. Christ in me means glory in my life; it means divinity revealed and expressed in, and through me. I’m the expression of the beauties and righteousness of Christ, bringing wholeness, sanity, and salvation to my world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
