Things the Lord gives me, and then I write them.

Pregnant with Christ

    Mary, the natural mother of Jesus, was humble and hidden. In other words, she was not well-known nor high in society. She was not seen.
    What a type for us today, His family, chosen of God, as she was, to be called to have "Christ formed in us." Non-pretentious, quiet and hidden we are, but yet bearing the Son within. As we are dying inside to ourselves, He is ever growing, until the Manchild is born. (Rev. 12:5) And He will be "in the fullness of time."
     As He grows within us, we are filled with more and more of His light, truth, grace and love. And, our former selves, are changed into His very likeness. But, we have to submit to bearing Him, as Mary did when she said, "Be it unto me according to Your Word."
    Will we do it? Will we lose our lives to save it? Will we let God nourish the Seed within us by submitting to His will in our lives? Will the world know that He has come? Do they see life and light in His Body, or death and darkness? Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered, as Christ in us, grows larger and larger everyday.

    a fascinating thought, my sister.

    as Paul is praying, "Â…and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness/compliment of God."
    [Ephesians 3:19]

    though "As He grows within us" seems a bit challenged for how Christ, The Anointed One, is complete now/today. His rebirthing in us may not be as an infant per se. But then, that doesn't appear to be what you are suggesting. Or, am I missing something?

    Christ "in us" is complete. As we are being conformed into His image, and we become less, so He becomes more, so it seems. No, He is not an infant in us, as He truly was in Mary, but the analogy could not be passed up, when the word talks about the Seed being in us. There is alot there to see spiritually in the parallel, and I was trying to express that with the little bit that I could see.
