Jesus Lives Through Us

Jesus lives through us. He lives through us as we train ourselves to see as he sees: to see beyond the external and see the unseen reality.

It means three things:

1. First, that I see Jesus in everything.
  • He is over all and through all and in all. He fills all in all. He who descended is also the one who ascended far above all the heavens, so that He might fill all things. Everything in the universe is an expression of Him.

  • I can either live in the reality that Jesus fills all in all, or I can live by what my physical eyes see. I choose to live in God's reality. 

  • In some way, everyone expresses Jesus. Either Jesus is being formed within them, or He has kept them in disobedience that He may show mercy to all, as Paul says.

  • By faith, I choose to see all as expressions of Jesus. All situations are God coming to me in different forms. I see Jesus in everything.

2. Second, God expects His Son, Jesus, to do it through me.
  • God doesn't expect me to do whatever He instructs me to do by my own efforts. I am not the one He expects to accomplish them.

  • We are containers of Him. He created us to live through us.

3. Third, I trust Jesus to do it.
  • I look only to Jesus in me. Only Jesus can live God's life.

  • Our role is faith - looking only to Jesus to do it.
