Focus Daily

(Culled from: How To Live a Life of Prayer: By: Andrew Murray)

            Christ is in me. What a difference it would make if we could take time every morning to focus on the thought: Christ is in me.

Christ made it clear to His disciples. The Spirit would teach them: “Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me; because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you” (John 14:19-20). Through the power of God we who believe were crucified with Christ and raised again with Him. As a result Christ is in us! Through faith in God’s Word, the Christian accepts it.

            Paul expresses this thought in the prayer of Ephesians 3:16: “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by His spirit in the inner man.” Notice that it is not the ordinary gift of grace, but a special revelation of the riches of His love that Christ may dwell in your heart by Faith. Have you been able to grasp that?

            Paul said: “I bow my knees unto the Father” (Ephesians 3:14). That is the only way to obtain the blessing. Take time in prayer in His presence to realize: “Christ dwells in me.” Even in the midst of your daily schedule, look upon your heart as the dwelling place of the Son of God. Then Christ’s words: “He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit”(John 15:5) will become your daily experience.
