For us Christians we have nothing else but Christ, he is our all in all. In him we live move and have our being, he is all that there is. It is sad how we continue to see Christian things as just things, the truth is that in Christianity we only have one thing — Christ.
This Christ is the new creation, in him we are seated in heaven with the Father — he is our heaven. We exist in him, anywhere you see us we are in him. In heaven we are in him, on earth we are in him, in the realm of the spirit we are in him. It is always "in Christ", we cannot get out of him, we can only exist in him.
We are in this world but we are in Christ and as such the corruption of the world cannot touch us. He is the shield around us, a bubble that cover us entirely. Yes, that is how protective God is, He forms an impenetrable bubble around His own and that bubble is Christ. Here nothing evil can touch us, here all that exist is Christ.
Where we exist there is nothing else but Christ. This land is Christ, the air is Christ, every part of this creation is Christ, he is the essence that fills all things. He is the Lord and the people, the head and the body, the husband and the wife, the Son and the sons, the tree and the branches, the food and the eater, the water and the drinker, there is nothing else but him, he has filled all in all.
"He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things." (Eph 4:10).
"This is in accordance with the terms of the eternal and timeless purpose which He has realized and carried into effect in [the person of] Christ Jesus our Lord," (Eph 3:11).
He has carried out and already achieved His eternal plan in Christ. This eternal plan is to fill all things with Christ and in Christ all things is filled with Christ, all things is Christ. He is yet to achieve this in the world but in Christ he has already achieved it. The reality we find in Christ is where the Lord and the people is Christ. He is the one giving the order and he is the one carrying it out, he is the one giving directive and he is the one taking it.
He is the one speaking and the one responding. The first time I experienced this I was shocked; God was talking to me and God was answering back in me, I just stayed and watch this interaction between God and God. The Father was talking to me and the Son in me was responding back and I was just died somewhere, because in Christ nothing else is alive but God. Christ is the only one living, the only life.
"Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." (Phil 2:12-13).
He is the one that gives us the commandment and he is the one obeying it in us. He gave a command, "work out your own salvation", yet he is the one working it, doing it in and through us. He is the one saying and the one doing. It is only him that can obey his commandment, only him can be faithful to him, only him never fails him. Do you see, it has to be Christ and Christ alone, this is God's eternal plan and He has accomplished it in Christ.
