Is It In You?

with 392 comments

The Gatorade commercials lately have a tag line, “Is it in you?” It goes with high profile athletes who have accomplished much in their sport shown in action in black in white. However, their sweat is the color of Gatorade — thus the tag line!

Recently, a friend shared the following video that builds off the Colossians 1:27, Christ in you, the hope of glory. I love it. You take a look and see what you think! (Links for download of the video at the bottom of this post!)

What’s so powerful to me is that I’m sure something like Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” must be sung by Heaven’s angels when we come to Christ and are born into God’s family. So the real question for us today is pretty simple: if someone could really hear your spiritual heart, what would they be able to hear?

Is He in you?

Special thanks to Stephen Corbett who shot and produced this video and to Rob Marcelain who did the actiing!

Other videos from Corbett and Crew can be found on the church website.

Please Note:

Due to the crushing download volume of the video, we can’t offer the movie files for download, We are looking for a way to make this available in other ways. We apologize, but simply can’t afford the bandwidth increase for download. But the video will remain available on YouTube.

  5. I know the place, the date, even the time of day I was saved.(Jun 25,2000 @ 2:00am) When Jesus came into my life, there was no mistaken Him!No,I was’nt Drunk.He has change my life.I never knew God could Love me.How can you Love someone that you can’t see?Well,YOU have to take the first step.The door is open,Jesus is waiting with His arms open.What is the risk here?He will never lie to you,He wants only what is best for you,He will NEVER leave you or forsake you!Just take the step,you will praise Him the rest of your days,you will not be sorry.He has become my Heavenly Father-didnt know my real one.Jesus is the best Father you can have-no need to hide anything-He knows it all-and yet He Loves YOU like no other.If you are feeling like something in your life is missing(like I was)it’s Jesus knocking at the door.Let Him in.I was once lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see…He is amazing and I grow to Love Him more each day.Come and taste that the Lord is GOOD!!!

  7. \"Weary heart, He hears your cry, and He\’s standing close by; every deed that you have done, He knows just now. Your every pain is His pain too, and He\’ll never fail you! Weary Heart, just know that He will see you through.\"

    Just part of a song I know and love. As the tuner of the piano does his \"thing\", he uses a tuning fork to cause the string to vibrate when it is in tune. If the Holy Spirit resides within your heart, He will react in a fashion similar to the piano string, and you will know a kindred spirit!

    If there is doubt about \"things\" in this life, we can quickly determine their real value. Consider what His Word has to say about it. Do it honestly without including any prejudice, and you have the answer.

  9. What a simple way to present the Truth.
    Those that know Christ is in their heart and have a relationship with him are no longer worried that the “Hallelujah Chorus” is in their heart’s “IPOD,” but rather if that is the tune that is most often played.

  11. One last response to Vicki:

    I want to extend my apologies to you if I have upset you in any way, but I was simply trying to give advice that has worked for me in conversations based on religion. And no, it was not just one person, but dozens!! Honestly, I don’t know what you’re talking about with “beating around the bush.” I wasn’t saying I’m ashamed of my religion & subsequent beliefs, so I really don’t know what you are talking about…

    All I’ve been trying to say is that it’s easier to talk to others about religion when one does not come off as abrasive & holier-than-thou (as mentioned by one of the “non-believers” previously)–I can tell you struggle with boldness as I do myself at times. In a way, you’re kind of proving my point. I never wanted anyone to think that I talk about denying or being ashamed of Christian beliefs, just that the peace & glory found should be shared; therefore, I believe (note how those two words do not convey denial or shame) the best way to communicate & bring in new believers to The Church is by kindness and patience–just simply saying “I believe” or “my beliefs are” in front of your convictions can make a world of difference. Good luck.

  33. If you are a follower of Christ, He is WAY much more than in You. He is literally, personally your very life!! Gal 2:20 says you’re dead (in some mysterious sense), and the life that is now happening in you is really not you, but Christ – just like he was in the man Jesus !!! If you think you’re a separate, independent person, Think Again !! You are One Spirit with Christ. Your body and soul are a vessel that He Manifests Himself through. You don’t have to do anything to make it happen; it already IS! Just recognize Him, and you enter into His Rest. Let your eye be single, to see ALL is HE, and you and I are lively, dynamic, but vessels, not independent selves. sonnybubbajoe@gmail.com

  36. This file chaches (i.e. loads) into Firefox’s cache file in Documents and Settings (search for a LARGE file with a random lettered name then label it with the extension .flv). The free VLC (and others) will play the file from then on – no internet or further downloads needed! Ditto for Internet Explorer’s temporary internet files.

  40. In Lk 6:26, the real Lord Jesus Christ said, “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! For in the same manner did their fathers to the false prophets!”

    Test them and yourselves as we have all been commanded to do, 2Co 13:5; 1Jn 4:1-6. Here are four excellent questions you may use.

    1) Jesus Christ commanded us all to seek first God’s Kingdom and God’s Righteousness, Mt 6:33a. First means first. His command is expounded in other Scriptures but probably best of all in Ro 1:16-25. In the Scriptures there is a Righteousness from God revealed that is by Faith, the “One Faith” as God defines Faith, and this is what we must believe in according to Scriptures such as Mk 1:14-15; Eph 4:4-7; etc. God’s One Faith is very specific and it is never to be redefined in any way. What, exactly, is it that we must find first, believe in and make more important than our own physical lives?

    2) All true Christians have left the Law of Sin and Death to belong to the Law of the Spirit of Life, Ro 1-8. Under the Law of Sin and Death, the wages of sin still end in Death, not in eternal Life. How, exactly, do we leave the Law of Sin and Death to belong to the Law of the Spirit of Life? The answer to the first question is also part of the answer to this question. In Ro 1-8, Paul described in great detail how it is done but what he wrote can be correctly summarized in a short paragraph.

    3) When Jesus Christ changed the water into wine, He revealed His heavenly Glory, including His spiritual New Covenant Baptism, Mt 3-7; Mk 10:35-45; Lk 11:1-13; Lk 12:1-50; Jn 2:1-11; 1Co 12:12-13; etc. In Jn 2:1-11, Jesus Christ also revealed how we must leave the Law of Sin and Death to belong to the Law of the Spirit of Life, Ro 1-8. What was the symbolism in Jn 2:1-11 that revealed Jesus Christ’s heavenly Glory, including His spiritual New Covenant Baptism?

    4) In 2Th 2, Paul warned about a terrible lie that the man of sin, the lawless one who is the liar, uses to deceive and exalt himself as God. Also, see Jn 8; Ro 1; Rev 14. Some “scholars” falsely claim the liar is the lie but Paul revealed what the lie is in detail within 2Th 2. What is the lie?

    Jesus Christ said: “If ye abide in my Word, then are ye truly my disciples and ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free.” His simple exact original Gospel Truth can easily be known and He said so.

    True Christians will have the anointing from the Holy One of God that teaches us the basics of Salvation, Jn 6:45; 1Jn 2. True Christians receive our Power from God through His anointing that gives us Wisdom from God, Righteousness from God, Holiness from God and Redemption from God, 1Co 1. True Christians, through our anointing from God, will have “the Mind of Christ”, 1Co 2. True Christians will know the easy short correct answers but false Christians will not know them.
