The Treasure Within

February 11

“The mystery which has
been hidden from ages and from generations, but now
has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed
to make known what are the riches of the glory
of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is
Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
COLOSSIANS 1:26,27

H ere is an amazing fact: the Bible says that we carry this Treasure (Jesus) within earthen vessels. In other words, the Living Christ indwells us now. We are His House, His Temple, His Dwelling Place, His Body.

I doubt if we really comprehend that. Do we really know that we are in Him, and He is in us?

    Amen. I do believe in your message, Bro. Chip because it’s stated in the Bible that we’re the vessel of God. It means He is in us and we’re in Him. At this point, we have to remain in Him because without Him we’re nothing. Allow His Holy Spirit to work in us. In our journey in life, let’s walk with Jesus side by side and hand in hand till we reach the heavenly land. Glory to God!

    I have always heard about treasure in heaven. I was taught the more money you give to the church and His kingdom and the more good works you do, the more treasure we will have in heaven. Is this teaching true?? Or is this false teaching and that we already have our treasure in heaven that’s within us, who is Christ Jesus??

    Thank you Chip. Once again I am blessed by your writing. For years I have read this verse without truly understanding it. Your writing has opened my eyes to so many things. You have provided a feast. I see the Bible with new eyes.

    Every word in the Bible is true,,but yet we fail so many times to “fill up” on the treasure that Jesus Christ truly is to us. He is our hope and so worthy to be praised for all the treasure He truly is to us. What wealth we do hold when we have Him and He has us. Thank you Chip for making Him so real and faithful to us as we ought to be real and faithful to Him.

    One of the most important things that has had a powerful influence on my walk with the LORD is understanding this principal that Chip talks about. If Christ dwells within us, and we are TEMPLES of the Holy Spirit, then will He not KNOW our every thought, every motive, every desire, every word – every single cell of us is known by Him, as He abides in us every single moment of the day. Since I understood this truth, it has transformed my life for I am being held accountable to Him every moment of every day. When I mess up, I can seek His forgiveness in a moment of time – would He not have brought His precious shed blood with Him when He came to abide in me, and could that blood not wash me in an instant from my sins? When I need Him, He is just a whisper away…..He knows my problems and my needs before I even ask. I love the story of Hezekiah in 2 Chron.29-31 and I loved to apply it to my life, MY body being the temple which had been for so long, a place of gathering dust, dirt and debris.
    We need always to do our “house-keeping” and ensure that this Temple IS a place, holy and righteous for Him to abide in – a place where we can enjoy one another as He has always willed it to be so.
