Christ In My Heart

I use to point my fingers up towards the sky when I use to make references about God. It’s a natural reaction when we think of God. He exists outside of time, is all knowing, and all powerful. I no longer point to God as some omnipresent being – God is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – the Triune. Now I point to my heart when I talk of Him. He is within me and resides in my heart as I draw nearer to Him through Jesus. Through Jesus, I have been given the grace of the Holy Spirit – my Paraclete – counsellor/teacher. Yes, it’s hard to wrap our heads around this. It is one of the mysteries of God.

“Christ is in you”

“But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the spirit is life because of righteousness.”

Romans 8:10

“It is Christ who lives in me”

“I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up for me.”

Galatians 2:20

“Christ is formed in you”

“My children, with whom I travail again in birth until Christ is formed in you.”

Galatians 4:19

“Christ may make His home in your hearts”

“That Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith, that you, being rooted and grounded in love.”

Ephesians 3:17

“Christ in you”

“To whom 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 1:27

God Bless 💕🙏

Thank you for praying the Novena of the Holy Spirit with me. Praying “Come, Holy Spirit” is an important part of my day. My life, along with my daily walk with Jesus, this blog, as well as all my sketches and art work is only made possible by the inspiration, guidance and love of the Holy Spirit working in me. I am not perfect and often fall, and I am thankful for a merciful God, and pray daily for the Fruits of the Holy Spirit to mold and shape me to be the “me” I am meant to be in Jesus Christ.

Let us rejoice in the Pentecost – Come, Holy Spirit! 🙏💕

God Bless💖
