The Lord Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. Thus, the only way to receive Him in your life is by receiving God’s Word. When the Word gets into your heart, it imparts faith and effects changes. You become the express image of His person; God forms Himself in you through His Word. His words are His thoughts passed to your spirit.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
The renewing of your mind is simply exchanging your thoughts for His thoughts. You replace your opinions with His, and see from His perspective. In Christianity, we’re called to express God; His thoughts, opinions, will and His righteousness
This is what God wants. He not only wants you to have His life in you, He wants you to live it out. He doesn’t just want to be there potentially; He wants to be there in reality, walking, talking, blessing lives and manifesting His glory through you.
