A Miracle Of God’s Grace
“For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority.” Colossians 2:9-10 (NASB)
Not in theory, but in reality, the born again believer possesses divine nature; the Holy Spirit; Jesus the Son; God the eternal Father; the Word; and eternal life. This is God’s miracle, and believers are recipients of God’s fullness in Christ.
I am a walking miracle of God’s grace; and if you are born again then you, too, are a walking miracle of God’s grace. I am a Christian because Christ is in my heart by faith. I was able to exercise faith in His saving grace because I heard the Word of God. I am living for Jesus because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). The life I now live is the new man living in this tabernacle of flesh–I live because Christ lives in me (Galatians 2:20). He will not allow me to be tempted above that which I am able to bear, but will with the temptation make a way of escape for me (1 Corinthians 10:13). Yes–“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
