The Indwelling Life of Christ
Sun, 9:15 AM, Room 212/213
by Gary Cain

….the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:26, 27

Have you ever considered what this great mystery, “Christ in you” means? Is this just a religious concept that cannot be understood, or is it possible to know the presence of Jesus as a reality in our everyday life? If you would like to investigate this mystery further, please join us for this 10-week study. We will read Major W. Ian Thomas’s book “The Indwelling Life of Christ: All of Him in All of Me.” Gary Cain will lead the discussion focused on living victoriously as we embrace the living Savior’s presence within us.
