Christ formed in me

my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you! Galatians 4:19

We often pray that a person’s behavior and attitude will change and God will touch him or her. A better prayer will be to pray for Christ  being formed in the person.
Why? Because this is the presence of God in the person’s life not by some will power of the individual that brings change. But you actually have the person of Christ in you! That’s a huge difference! It’s much more personal and intimate. It is much more encompassing.
Remember your will power doesn’t change you. What changes you in Christ in you!

Notice that the word used here is Christ is ‘formed’ in you. It’s a formation process. It’s only possible if Christ is in you. Only God can do that. Pray!

Example: would you like to have a map guiding you or a life person leading you?
Ask for the person of Christ! He is the Son of God our savior and redeemer who loves us and died for us. He is our shepherd. I shall not lack.
I love Christ. I can’t love laws. I can’t love vision. Without Christ, I am doomed. My life is in Christ. Christ is in me. Christ is everything. Bible says, it’s no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me, and the life I now live I live by faith in Christ  who loved me and gave himself for me.
