Session 6: Awake to Who Christ Is WITHIN Us
"Who do you say that I am?" - Matthew 16:15
In this session with David, we discover how Christ reveals his supremacy by his saving presence among his people. Christ sets up his throne among us. By his Spirit he dwells within us, reproducing in us his godly characteristics, his inexhaustible wisdom, the fruit of His Spirit (Galatians 5).
Jesus transforms us individually and corporately to become more like him, helping us overflow with his love for the Father and each other. Christ unites us by his reign among us.
Paul writes in Colossians 1, “Christ is in [among] you, the hope of glory … I ask God to fill you … (you) share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light … (so) live a life worthy of the Lord”.
Right now in so many ways, our life together is bound around Christ supreme.

After completing your video...
Spend a minute in silence, reflecting on today’s teaching.
What was the most meaningful part for you? How did it speak to you?
In what ways did today's teaching video help you see and think about God's Son in newer or fresher or larger terms?
In what ways did today's teaching video give you greater reasons to put your hope in Christ alone -- for your life, for your church, for your generation? As well as for eternity?
What one next step should today's teaching encourage you to take in your daily walk with our supreme King, the Lord Jesus Christ?
What is one insight about the glory of Christ you gained today that you would like to share with one other believer before the day is over, in order to help that person gain a little bit larger vision of the greatness of Christ, too?
If you were standing before Jesus on His throne right now, based on today's teaching what one thing would you like to say to the Father to express to Him your praise and gratitude for who His Son is right now?
What would you like ask the Father to do in your life by His Spirit that would deepen some facet of your relationship to His glorious Son?
