John 17:21- 26

I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you…I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me.  May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved Me.  … I will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.

Col. 1:25-27

…I present to you the word of God in its fullness—the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints.  To whom God has chosen to make known…the glorious riches of this mystery, which is CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY.

True independence can be found through the freedom we have in Christ Jesus…yet so much more!  We are to be His Glory.

In the opening of John Chapter 17, Christ says boldly, “Glory has come to me through them…so that they may be one as we are one.”  The result of the magnificent atonement purchased for us on the Cross rests here:  To be one with God brings to light the wondrous “Glory” of God.

The realization that the broken relationship with God our Father is so completely restored through the righteous life and death of His Son, Jesus Christ, fills us with awe and unspeakable joy.  To know that we are filled with the precious gift of God’s Spirit is indeed the “Glory of God” that has been referred to throughout all of Scripture.

As a Believer, you are the Glory of God, a gift through the Atonement and the Redemptive work of Christ.  You have become the unveiling of the Great Mystery, which is Christ in you.

In the Old Testament, the shining reality of the “Oneness of the Godhead and the Godhead in us” was seen by Moses as God passed by Him.  The pure love and holiness of this act of redemption (that was to come to earth for all mankind) was to turn the hair of Moses white and make his face to reflect brightly this truth of God for all the nation to see, the supernatural light that reveals the face of Jesus.

1.    How does this truth of “Christ In You” affect you?

2.    How do you at times “reflect” this image of redemption?  Do you feel you are God’s Glory?

3.    How do you truly forgive others as God In Christ has forgiven you?
