II Corinthians 5:17 (Pt. 3)  Thought/Prayer:  The Someone Within.  Topics:  2 at end.

“So that if any one is in Christ, he is a new creature: the old state of things has passed away; a new state of things has come into existence.” WNT (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

How is it that Christ is in us? But also, we are in Christ?  How can this be?  How can two individuals be both “in” someone but the someone is within them?  Humanly speaking, this is not possible.  Oh, we say we are “into“ someone and implying enjoyment of the person or we like what they have to say about a lot of things.  But to have two persons physically being “in” each other in two directions just doesn’t happen.

But with Christ, it can and does.  We know that we receive Him as our Savior.  He is in us.  But then there are scriptures like this one wherein we read that we can also be “in” Him.  Perhaps it’s pretty obvious as to how this can happen:  it doesn’t involve just the physical.  This scriptural statement is a spiritual statement:  Christ can be within and we can be in Him at the same time because it is spiritual.  In fact, it is what we might say “Spirit-ual.”  Because of His humanly unseen Spirit, this can happen.

So, when I accept Christ as Savior, there is a Spirit transaction taking place.  The Holy Spirit lives within.  But, Our Lord Jesus is with the Spirit in the Trinity.  And when He comes into our lives, then we also rest within Him the Spirit and God the Father.  It’s a seemingly difficult arrangement; but it really is not.  It’s as simple as the Spirit being in us and us being in Christ who is the Spirit.  It seems a twisting to get this done.  No, it’s not.  It’s pretty straightforward and simple:  I’m in Him as a new Creature.  But He is in me as the Spirit, bringing in the new.

Lord, help us to understand this.  Help us to be able to explain it to others whom we serve.  It is difficult for us to fathom how You have arranged this to work; we only know that it does, and we can rest in this Someone, within . . . within.  We praise You.

Topics:  Praise God for His arrangements for us with the Spirit, and pray to share about them with others seeking LIFE answers.
