Christ in us Hope of Glory

Christ in us Hope of Glory

Beauty forming
Light swirling deep with in
Luminous seeds germinating
Boldness emerging
Teaching others to breathe
Praying in faith
Sharing in truth
Building each other up
Loving to realness 
Worshiping into eternity
Sacrificing of Pride
Walking in obedience
Identity in Christ taking root
Reaching out in unity
Transforming our world
From glory to glory
Christ in us.

Colossians 1:26-29 (TheMSG)  "This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message. We preach Christ, warning people not to add to the Message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less.

Holy God, Abba Father


God is holy and to be held in awe and reverence, honored and lifted high. On our own we cannot approach him and yet in his compassion he  sent his son after us, spilling his own blood so that we could have a transfusion and have part in the fathers DNA. Jesus is our only access point. In believing and receiving this gift we are now brought into fellowship with the father and have access to our Holy God. As we rely on the Holy Spirit in surrender he reveals truths and continually directs us to the father’s heart.
