Our reading in 2 Chronicles today, had this verse, the eyes of the Lord searched the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. God's eyes are looking for something. And Paul tells us what that something is in Colossians 1:22. Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ, in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless, as you stand before him without a single fault. God has found what he's looking for, in you, because you now stand before him. without fault, holy and blameless in his presence, Christ has reconciled to to himself by his death on the cross. In fact, Paul says that Christ has reconciled all things to himself. He has won for his father, many sons and daughters. And so now, God has found what he's looking for his son, he's finding him in you. In 2 Corinthians 5:19, Paul says the same thing that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their sins against them. Christ's victory on the cross accomplished far more than we have dared to imagine. But Paul is wanting to blow our imaginations out of the water. He says, in effect, do you know that you are blameless? Do you know that you are without fault? and holy? Do you know that God has found what he's looking for in you? Because you are in Christ, and he is in you. And it's not because of anything you've done? But what Christ has done? For you and for the world? Do you know that? Have you entered into the joy of that? Have you found what you're looking for? Do you realize that you your true life has been hidden with God in Christ, what Christ has done for you on the Cross has brought you into his life. Now, you can live with strength, confidence, joy, hope, and peace. Those are ours now in him, learning to participate in those things. Well, that takes some work. It takes faith. Yet all these things are ours in him. Colossians 127 says, For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles to is for everyone. And this is the secret Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. Here's a simple exercise I encourage you to do today. Simply ask? Because this what I'm saying here is just so so beyond us, right? I mean, Christ in me. How about you ask today? If that is so don't ask me. Ask God. Is it true That Christ, that He is in me? And listen, I keep listening to what God will say. That's the prayer that I have for my own soul. That's the prayer that I have for my family for my wife, my daughters and my son. And that's a prayer that I have for you. May be so.
