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 6:4 – How does the New Testament talk about Christ within?
"For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit." - Ephesians 2:18-22

Pray: 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?
