Fresh Life in 2011

By Ron McGatlin

My heart rejoices at the increasing swell of Godís people awakening to the reality of Christ in us.  This is indeed a great mystery that will release the very life and power of Christ Jesus within us and eventually upon this planet. Multitudes can be transformed as a firm nucleus of Godís people becomes a living reality of Christ Jesus by His indwelling Spirit. The grace empowerment of Christ increasingly manifesting the love, power, and wisdom of God in His humble people will impact masses of people who are hungry for reality. Many have been greatly discouraged by a vain empty life of religiously striving and selfish pleasure-seeking.

Frustration, fear, and folly have combined to discourage the hearts and lives of good people who are seeking God but without understanding - always seeking and never finding the settled reality of Christ within.

A surge of fresh exciting life is beginning to flow as our inabilities are giving way to His possibilities bubbling up within us.

The Possibilities of Christ in You

The fountains of living water are flowing as fresh revelation of the reality of Christ in His people is being received by faith (John 7:38). As Christians, the things we sought to become or do have again and again proven our inabilities to perform. Yet, we have stubbornly clung to our efforts and religious routines striving to measure up to the expectations of a godly life.

Visitations of God in supernatural revivals or Holy Spirit outpourings have, for a season, introduced a portion of the Body of Christ to the manifest presence and power of God. For the most part these were glorious external or temporary experiences with the reality of God that to some degree faded in time. Some have felt they are in an in-between state of existence unable to return to their old pre-revival religion but also unable to find again the joyous and glorious life they once knew in the spiritual outpourings.

That which was external and seemingly present only in spiritual outpouring among corporate gatherings is becoming manifest within our hearts and lives even while in the relative isolation of wilderness living. The deep wells of the life of Christ within are increasingly flowing fresh life, filling us and flowing out to those around us. Excitement of the stirring waters of the Spirit are producing righteousness, peace, and joy in an atmosphere of true holiness.

Those things that were impossible for us due to our inabilities are beginning to be performed by the power of Christ in us. It is not even a little bit by our effort. Our only part is to be willing and believe. It is completely the work of Christ Jesus living in our bodies, working the works of our Heavenly Father on earth as it is in heaven. The possibilities are limited only to the desire and plan of Father God. Christ Jesus in us is the power that can and will do all the works of love and holiness. This is the grace of God completing salvation of our lives now and forever by His power and not our own. Deliverance, healing, and everything needed to complete the plan of God for us is provided by the grace empowerment of God through Christ in us by the Holy Spirit.

A Vast Life Potential

Our time here on earth contains the greatest life potential of all created beings. Only redeemed human beings have the potential to flow the resurrected life of Christ Jesus into existence in the natural world. The great demonstration of Spirit God in the natural world is the huge unthinkable potential of Christ in His people. The fulfillment of this great mystery is in view in the vast places of the spiritual realm now. This hidden mystery of the ages is coming into view. The glory of God filling the earth presenting the glory of God to all creation and eternity is now revealed in the Spirit. Christ in you is the hope (confident expectation) of glory Ė Godís glory fully manifest on natural earth as it is in spiritual heaven (Col 1:26-27) (Mat 6:10).

We cannot help but set our affection, our minds on things above and not on things on the earth, if He lives in us and we know Him as He knows us (Col 3:1-2). Our human frailties and lack fade away in the spiritual glory of His loving kindness and ultimate power abiding within us as we abide in Him (John 15:4).

There is no greater love than laying down oneís life for another (John 15:13). His great love is mirrored in us as we lay down our lives that He might live in us (John 10:15) (1 John 3:16). The greatest exchange of all time is our weak inabilities for His holy life of power, love, and wisdom in the atmosphere of His righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

We are blessed among all people that the hope of the ages past are manifest in us today in this Day of the Lord that is upon us. God is good and His mercy endures forever!

Keep on pursuing love. It never fails
and His kingdom never ends.

Thanks, Gayle, Lyn, Don, Bill & Kathy for your encouraging comments and agreement.

I am excited about the fresh life of God becoming evident in this year. That which was external and seemingly present only in spiritual outpouring among corporate gatherings is becoming manifest within our hearts and lives even while in the relative isolation of wilderness living. The deep wells of the life of Christ within are increasingly flowing fresh life, filling us and flowing out to those around us.
