It's that simple.

My sister, Beck, sent this to me yesterday....

Think this is from the Message Bible.. I haven't checked yet.

Love love love <3

Colossians 1:26-29

"This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it's out in the open. God wanted EVERYONE, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing.
The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory.
It's that simple.
That is the substance of our Message.
We preach Christ, warning people not to add to the Message.
We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity.
To be mature is to be basic.
Christ!
No more, no less.
That's what I'm working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me. "


YES!

My favorite line in this scripture:

"The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory. It's that simple.
"

It's so simple...
Christ.
Is.
In.
You.

It's so simple.
Christ.
Nothing more.
Nothing less.

So look forward and live.
It truly IS that simple.
