Christ In You: Living Into Your Life's Purpose

Devotional

Christ Shines Through You


God is for you, He is with you, and He’s in you—day in and day out.


Embracing this reality can change everything about your life. The ways you think, act, dream, and plan are transformed as Jesus renews your mind (Romans 12:2) and His peace guards your heart (Philippians 4:7).


The world is desperately seeking what can only be found in Jesus. When your life shines with lasting peace, joy, and hope, others can see what it’s like to embrace life with Christ. 


When Christ guides your day, others notice that your life is different. They see you choosing to trust God (instead of anxiously trying to control your circumstances) and showing kindness to those around you (instead of lashing out in anger).


When you hold onto Jesus’ peace instead of turning to anger or frenetic anxiety, you are proclaiming God’s faithfulness to a generation in need of His hope. You testify of Him who calls us out of darkness and welcomes us into His light (1 Peter 2:9).


The world is longing for the peace of Christ who is in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). God pours Himself into you because He loves you—and so others can see Christ shining through you, bringing glory to the Father (Matthew 5:16).


Guided Prayer



  • Praise God for giving you Christ—who fills you with His love and shines His life to those around you.

  • Ask the Lord to help you walk in His peace, love, and hope—so others can see Christ through you.

  • As you read today’s verses, ask Jesus to make His life in you even more apparent to those with whom you interact.
