That Is No Trinket You Carry

Posted by in Uncategorized

Today is one of those grey days, lacking much evidence of the life we were created for.  As I ponder this I realize how often I find myself waiting for some form of life to come bursting on the scene.  I find myself disappointed by the daily drudgery, and then it occurs to me.  Jesus came that we might have life and have it to the fullest.  So where is that life?  Where does he deposit that life?  Where can you find it in this world?  In us!  Astounding!

“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”  (John 7:38)

“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life” (Proverbs 4:23)

“Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27)

 

His life is in us and it is from within us that it will flow.  Why are we always looking elsewhere?
