Some of the most profound thoughts are the simplest of ones and some of the most basic.
The foundation of our faith lies in Christ and the union that we share with Him.
This really spoke immensley to my heart today so i thought i would share it with this community as well.
If we could graspe who we really are in Christ all other things would be non issues.
blessings to you for the Glory of the one true king.

THE GIFT OF CHRIST

by Chip Brogden

http://www.watchman.net/articles/gift.html

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

"As the fullness of God - all that He is and all that He has - dwells

in Christ, so the fullness of Christ - all that He is and all that He

has - dwells in you" (Colossians 2:9,10a).

I am afraid that we do not truly appreciate the fact that God has never

given us THINGS, but has summed up everything into Christ, having

poured Himself into His Son. Having the Son, possessing the Son, being one

with the Son, we have and possess everything God is. It never has been a

question of seeking ten, one hundred, or one thousand different things

from God. If we do not know from our experience, we should at least

know from the Scriptures, that CHRIST IS THE GIFT OF GOD. Then our

experience will come into line with God's Thought. If you are used to seeking

spiritual "things" (love, joy, peace, anointing, power, blessing, etc.)

then this message is particularly for you, but we all stand to benefit

from being reminded constantly that Christ is God's One Gift.

It is the FULLNESS of Christ that we are after, the revelation of

Christ as He IN FACT IS. For too many Christians the Lord Jesus is "merely"

their Savior. Thank God He is our Savior, but there is a depth and a

richness bound up into the personage of Christ that goes far, far beyond

"mere" salvation. Salvation is the narrow gate - coming into the

fullness of Christ is the narrow path. The gate is only the entrance to

something larger.
