The Greatest Truth

When I first got saved, I learned about Jesus in the Bible, and that was wonderful to me. And then as I began to live the Christian life, I would see what Jesus would do in the lives of other people, and I saw Jesus in history and Jesus in action, and that was wonderful to me. And then as I studied more and more, I began to learn about Jesus in heaven, ruling and reigning from His throne, and that was wonderful. Jesus is in the Bible, Jesus is in history, Jesus is in Heaven.

But I’ll tell you the great truth that I am now learning: “Christ in me, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27c). He now lives in me. He has possessed me. I am His purchased possession, and therefore I am under new management.

Churches are filled with a lot of pseudo-Christians, people who come down church aisles and have never been born again. People who’ve gone through the baptistery and have never been saved. But if you are saved, you’re under new management. And when you gave your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ, that was the last legitimate independent decision you ever made. You are not your own! You belong to the Lord Jesus Christ.
