Quote: I never imagined that Christ was in me…

21 Feb

“For many years I missed this truth. I believed all the other prepositions: Christ for me, with me, ahead of me.  And I knew I was working beside Christ, under Christ, with Christ.  But I never imagined that Christ was in me.  I can’t blame my deficiency on Scripture.  Paul refers to this union 216 times.  John mentions it 26.  They describe a Christ who not only woos us to himself but “ones” us to himself” — Max Lucado
