Looking For Jesus

"Christ in you the hope of glory." Col. 1: 27b

Where did you look for Jesus this morning?   Did you search for HIm in the pages of your Bible?  Did you search for Him in the annointing of some preacher?  Did you search for Him in a daily devotional?  Did you search for Him in you?

Jesus lives in you right now.  He is never far from you.  He is never far from any believer.

He lives in you so you can live His life.  He wants far more than your best attempt to imitate Him.  He wants nothing less than your willingness to live Him.

When Jesus said in John 15 "Without Me you can do nothing" He was calling you to abandon imitation and embrace incarnation.  Living Him right now is the goal not imitating Him right now.

Living Him begins the moment you awaken each day.  How you decide to look for Him defines whether you can or will live Him.  Looking for Him anywhere else except in you will mean you will be at best an imitation of Jesus.

The world needs to see Him alive today in you.  Even our best imitation of Jesus is never enough for the glory of God to appear among men.
