MANIFESTING THE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST!
For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh (2 Corinthians 4:11).
Every Christian is delivered to manifest the life of Jesus Christ in life. That is the reason why he is being referred to as little Christ because the glory of Jesus Christ is in him in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God expects him to always manifest the life of Jesus Christ. A Christian is expected to manifest the life of Jesus Christ because of Christ’s glory in his life. It is indeed the glory of Jesus Christ that revealed the manifestation of God in a Christian’s life forever.
Jesus Christ made it vividly clear to us in the Scriptures that He is the Vine, while we Christians are His branches in life (John 15:5). Although, the vine and the branches have the same life but the branches are the flower’s carriers of the vine in life. Every Christian carries the beauty and glory of Jesus Christ; therefore, he is expected to manifest it to the world in life. Your life is not just ordinary but very special and precious to God in life. Therefore, a Christian is indeed the flower of the body of Jesus Christ that actually manifests the beauty of Jesus Christ’s body in life. A Christian is of course hidden in Christ Jesus to manifest the glory of God in life forever.
The hope of a Christian is in Christ Jesus. That hope is the beauty and glory of Jesus Christ in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Colossians 1:27, “To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” In fact, the glory of a Christian is of course hidden in Jesus Christ who is also the hope of glory to the world in life. Jesus Christ in the life of a Christian is the hope of his glory which he is expected to manifest for the world to see and behold in life. Hence, the glory of God is indeed the hope that a Christian has both here and even hereafter in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to manifest the life of Jesus Christ which is his glory to the world in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: But rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy (1 Peter 4:13).
