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.

Video 6:1 – What does “Christ WITHIN us” tell me about who he is today?
"'My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.'" - John 17:20-26
