‘Christ in us, the hope of glory.’ This is perhaps the most beautiful reflection of the thinking of a man truly in love with Christ and His mentality, a reflection recorded by the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Church at Colossae. (Colossians 1:27b)
However, the Bible draws our attention to the fact that without having a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus and without carrying in His soul and daily practice His whole palette of teachings, all our hopes for a future of eternal Joy will be in vain. as it is written, only those in whose mentality the Savior will be the central element can have the perspective of the Glory and eternal fellowship of the Godhead.
As for you, how do you relate to God and the promise of His Kingdom? Are you ready to greet him with the joy and passion of a prize-winner waiting to receive the laurels of victory for the way he will have lived his ephemeral existence? Or, on the contrary, after carefully analyzing your life of faith, you realize that the eternal condemnation may be written in your behalf.
Wherever you are, choose to live today as a true believer, absorbing in your own mind the whole goodness of the Lord Jesus and at the same time letting your whole being produce visible effects that will ‘betray’ in front of all those around you.
Do not forget! We will find out the real hope of Glory only when the mentality of the Godhead becomes the foundation of our mind and heart.
