Colossians1-27This message was kept secret for centuries and generations past, but now it has been revealed to God’s people. For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. Colossians 1:26-27Everyone likes secrets, and to those in Christ Jesus, it is no secret!  Christ lives in those who proclaim His name.  What’s good about Christ Jesus?  He gives us a surety of sharing His glory.  Have you ever seen the eternal brilliance of His glory?  I am not sure our human eyes can behold the intensity of His glory.The question is, is the glory spiritual or physical or both.  God has hidden himself in dark clouds, in a storm and no man has seen Him.  Man has heard his voice, like the rumbling of thunder or like the shout of trumpets on a clear day.  That will all be ours when Jesus returns to earth the second time.Everyone in this physical life loves a winner.  Seeing them overcome the odds to become victorious.  In Christ Jesus, God’s gracious gift to mankind, we will overcome sin and death.  For in no other name can we be saved.  It is called Grace, the gift of righteousness from God our Father.  Grace, the joy of being one with Jesus, and being truly free to live an abundant life of love.With this Gift of Grace comes the fruit of the spirit, Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.  Against such there IS NO LAW!  (Galatians 5:22-23)And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins.  For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:16-18
