Too many Christians today, indwelling Christ was merely a doctrine, not a reality. In their practical daily living, they were ethical and religious, but they did not live Christ. Even their love was a natural, ethical love, not the expression of Christ lived out from within them. In these believers you could see religion and ethics, but you could not see much of Christ. They know Christ in doctrine, but they have very little genuine experience of Him. However, when Paul wrote the book of Colossians, he wrote both according to doctrine and according to experience. To us, Christ is both objective and subjective. We know Christ both
according to doctrine and according to experience. On the one hand, our
Christ is on the throne in the heavens. On the other hand, He is in our
spirit. We worship the enthroned Christ in the heavens, but we experience,
enjoy, and partake of the indwelling Christ in our spirit. We are one with
Him in a very subjective way. As Paul says in 1 Corinthians 6:17, "He who is
joined to the Lord is one spirit." Christ is subjective to us to such a degree
that He and we, we and He, have become one spirit. To be one spirit with
the Lord is greater than to have gifts and miracles. Now that we have
become one spirit with the Lord, in our daily life we need to experience
being one spirit with Him. In God, Christ is our life. This life is now hidden but will be manifested. Then we will be manifested with this life in glory. (Col. 3:4,)
