When we deliver God's message to people of the world, we meet some people who insist that they are God's children. They said " God is within me, that's why I can tell God's people." So I asked " Then can you let me know the reason why you can say God is within you? Is there any evidence?" Then nobody replied and went their way again. If there is God inside them, they could show us evidence.
Romans 8:5~9 …You ,however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,he does not belong to Christ.
If we don't have the Spirit of Christ, we are not God's one. then how can we prove that we are God's people. We have to know if we are God 's people.
1John 5:9 We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God.
God's people are testified by God. Then what is the testimony of God?
John6:53 Jesus said to them," I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day...Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.
Here is the way God is within us. It's the eating Jesus's flesh and drinking his blood. Then God himself testifies us that we are his people. Then how can we have his flesh and blood?
Matthew26:17~19 … So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
Matthew26:26~28 While they were eating,Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it and...." Take and eat; this is my body(flesh)....Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them,saying...""Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood..."
By keeping the Passover of the new covenant, we can have Jesus's flesh and blood and finally he can remain in us and say we are his people and in me he dwells.
