Topic: Your True Nature
Scripture: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).
We have true nature as believers, we have true life! Hallelujah. Not two kinds of life but one that we have received in Jesus Christ. The scripture above confirms that God wants the believers to manifest him to the world. He lives in us to show the world His own righteousness not our own righteousness as many do today – Rom 10:1-4. He wants to show the world His love, which is the definition of Godly characters and relationship, through the believers He wants to show the world true deliverance – John 8:32, power, anointing, prosperity, etc.
The real essence of Christianity is Christ in you, manifesting and expressing Himself in, and through you. The Christian is one who expresses and demonstrates the life, nature, character and righteousness of Christ. This is one of the things you check in appraising yourself spiritually; how much your actions, attitude, words and character manifests Christ. As one who is born again, Christ rules your life, you have His nature and that is your true nature. Do not be deceived. Therefore, in all that you do, and at all times, refuse to allow your flesh to rule you but rather, be ruled by your Christ-nature.
When people see you they should see Jesus. Jesus said to the congregation around Him at a time in John 14:7 and 9, that if they have known Him they have known the Father. If they have seen Him they have seen the father the same should be our testimony as believers. As Christ came representing God the Father to complete the work of salvation so also the believers are to represent Christ. 2 Cor 2:20 says we are an ambassador for Christ. Hallelujah.
The way you talk, let Christ be heard. Let His love reflects from your words and actions. Let Jesus live through you. You have his nature as a believer. He wants to live, talk, manifest His power, love, grace, and spirit through you. Let Him see through your eyes, walk with your legs and work with your hands. 2 Corinthians 4:11 says, “For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.” This is Christianity.
All that God wants manifested in you is Christ; touching and changing lives through you. A lot of us keep asking for the will of God daily, there is no better will of God than to let His nature dominate you. The will of God is this simple to know. Reveal the glory and beauty of Christ daily. That glory is in your spirit, where Christ dwells. Therefore, look inwards; see the love, power, and glory of Christ within you and reveal the same to your world.

Remember daily that you have the life of Christ Jesus. That is your real life and true nature. Say to yourself daily that “I have a life and nature. The life and nature of God. I was recreated in righteousness and true holiness, to express the will and nature of Christ. I pray for you that in every matter, every place, at every opportunity you will always give expression to the righteousness of God within you. Amen.
