II Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?
Paul encouraged the Corinthian believers to test themselves. Then, he gave them a one-question examination: “Do you not know that Jesus Christ is in you?”
It was not a matter of faith; it was a matter of acknowledging that Jesus was alive in them. Today, many of us struggle with the same dilemma! We easily believe in the free gift of salvation, but we disregard the power of a Risen Savior that takes up residence in our lives.
Christ is in us! The One Who walked out of the grave with the keys of victory in His hand lives in us. The One Who quiets the wind and waves with a simple command lives in us. Along with John, we can say, “…He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world!” (I John 4:4).
If the Mountain Mover is in us, those obstacles will be removed. If the Commander of Angel Armies is in us, no weapon formed against us will prosper. If our Rock and Defense is in us, we will not be moved.
Take the one-question examination today: Do you know that Jesus is alive in you? Square your shoulders. Lift your chin. You are a child of the King. If you know it, live out that truth.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Jesus is your Salvation and Strength, your Rock and Redeemer, your Deliverer and Defender. When He is in you, nothing is impossible!
