Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians1:26-27).
Christ in you is glory realised. Christ in you is the fulfilment of that hope of glory.The hope that man was looking forward to has been fulfilled in Christ.Adam lived in the presence of God and God’s presence was his light. That connection, that relationship, was the glory of God.
Adam, and subsequently all men, were cut off from that glory in the Garden of Eden, when he sinned against God by committing high treason. But now, you don’t have any reason to live outside the glory of God anymore, because the glory is here now; it’s in your spirit. How do you know that your life is excellent and full of glory? It’s because Christ is in you! That’s your hopefor a flourishing life in health, prosperity, victory and success. That’s your confidence that you’ll never be defeated in life: Christ in you, your hope of the transcendent life.
