Jesus on the outside is a religious subject, but Jesus living on the inside is fire in the bones — God’s internal combustion! Christian concepts can fill the mind, yet can leave the heart apathetic, but connection with the risen Jesus, always sets the heart on fire!
For Christ to change you, it’s not enough to hear about Him in your mind. He also must be internalized in your heart. “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Without Christ internalized, hope hides and is hard to hold on to.
To absorb information about Jesus, but neglect to internalize His presence, is to consent to casual, compromised Christianity. To internalize Jesus, allow Him to dive below your mind, rearrange your soul, and establish His eternal kingdom there. Instead of internalizing things, internalize the living Jesus!
When Christ is internalized and woven into your soul, you’ll never be the same! An internal relationship with the living Jesus will flood your soul with incredible inspiration and insight! To internalize Christ is a new way of being — a supernatural lifestyle that rises up and flows from deep within you.
Christ in you will manifest Himself by ongoing improvements in your attitude, emotions, thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and choices. Experience the wondrous joy of internalizing the risen Jesus. (Search Amazon for: The Joy Of Early Christianity book.)
If we deny ourselves and lose our egos, we can become free to flow with Christ and go where He goes. If we won’t bend with God’s wind and let His Spirit lead us, we’ll stay stuck in the muck of self. The closer my relationship with Jesus, the more I want to be even closer to Him!
