Christ in you, the hope of glory ~ 3-22

Who are you? Who, who? Who, who? — The Who

The 1960s were pretty confusing times for everyone. Some have said, “Anyone who says they remember the 60s must not have been there.” It seemed like everyone was asking the hard questions, but no one had the answers. It reminds me of the rock band, “The Who.” Their repeated question of “Who are you?” from a hit song in the 70s still echoes across the airways. But does anyone have an answer to this most important question: Who are you? The apostle Paul did:

To them (believers in Christ) God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)

In this passage, Paul identifies the mystery of the mystery. He answers the question of our identity at its deepest level: What really matters is not who you arebut Who is in you. The answer to that question should never cease to stun us, because it’s our hope of glory. It’s our glorious riches… the great mystery: “Christ in you.”
