In this session with David, we discover how Christ reveals his supremacy by his saving presence among his people. Christ sets up his throne among us. By his Spirit he dwells within us, reproducing in us his godly characteristics, his inexhaustible wisdom, the fruit of His Spirit (Galatians 5).
Jesus transforms us individually and corporately to become more like him, helping us overflow with his love for the Father and each other. Christ unites us by his reign among us.
Paul writes in Colossians 1, “Christ is in [among] you, the hope of glory … I ask God to fill you … (you) share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light … (so) live a life worthy of the Lord”.
Right now in so many ways, our life together is bound around Christ supreme.

Video 6:5 – What is the role of the Holy Spirit to give us Christ within?
"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
- Ephesians 3:14-19
