“Christ in you, the hope of glory” refers to the same glory that is to be revealed to us, in us and conferred on us. Christ means the Anointed One and His anointing. The Anointed One and His anointing on you, the hope of glory. When you live out the full worth of the anointing on your calling in the world, the full glory is expressed.
The glory that goes to God in your life cannot come from your career. The powerful callings of an apostle, a missionary, an evangelist, a pastor’s wife etc. are lying dormant right inside some people today. They have signed an accord with circumstances or with some problems that are disturbing them. No! It is time for you to rise and say, “I am going to live out the full worth of my calling on the earth”. Then that glory is going to be revealed in you and for you and conferred on you. Nothing else can bring glory to God than the calling.
For example, I read Electrical Engineering at university but God called me to be a minister of the gospel. Suppose I am now practising as an Electrical Engineer, I will not be blessing as many people as God is using me to bless today. I am not saying that it is wrong to have gone to school to read that course. No, but I must go beyond that; I must discover my purpose. Thank God for the knowledge that I have from being an Electrical Engineer, but the glory of the calling is what is affecting many people today.
PRAYER: Father, thank you for the many platforms you have given me. I ask that you take me further into your purpose and call for my life in Jesus’ name.
