Christ Fully-Formed in YOU

Galatians 4:4-7, 19

4...When the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. 6Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir... 19 My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is fully-formed in you..."

A component of my trainng that lasted the entire summer was "Heart of the Missionary." It was the spiritual bootcamp and checkup I needed. This phrase and it's affect on my spiritual DNA were among the most influential. Coupled with this knowledge is the foundation that since my conversion and baptism I share in the death and resurrection of Chist and in Him alone find my identity. We love that passage when we things are going well. BUT I have found the most strength from it when confronting the Accuser!
If my identity is no longer "mine" but Christ's, thru me and being formed more and more in me....then when Satan tries to accuse "me" I can truly say,
"That man is dead!
Not I, but Christ who lives within me!!!!"

Now I guard my heart and my mind so carefully to keep this perspective of Christ always with me and gradually fully-forming Himself in me so that really do decrease that He may increase.

That's how, I believe, people see Christ in us...and why the fragrance of His presence lingers on us and draws them to Him. Not only do we reflect the glory of the Father as the moon the Sun but we have that fire of His presence lighting us from within. May His presence thru us be like fire in dry grass to those who are perishing.
