CHRIST IN ME

Jul 17 2015Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.  Ephesians 4:13

The Bible tells us the real man is Christ.  This Christ is the perfect, invisible Presence back of, in and through every living soul.  Just as there is but one God or First Cause, so there is but one Man, the manifestation of the Divine Spirit in and through all people.  Throughout the ages this Christ has come with some degree of clarity to those who have meditated long and earnestly upon the nature of the Divinity that is in everything.

I acknowledge this True Self, knowing that It will instantly supply me with whatsoever things I need.  I consciously re-enter the kingdom of heaven within me.  I sit at a table of the Lord and partake of the divine banquet, the wine of Spirit and the bread of Life.  I know that the master at the table is my own indwelling Christ, that part of me which is perfect in God, that immortal Self which is birthless, deathless and changeless.  I know that my host is God, the living Spirit Almighty.  I live, move and have my being in this Divine Presence.

Today I permit Christ to be born in my consciousness.  Today I realize that Christ is the universal Son appearing through every deed of goodness, truth or love.  As I unveil the Christ in my own nature, I know that the countenance of the same Christ will be revealed to me through others.  I enter into my Divine inheritance through the recognition of my union with the supreme Spirit.
