Is Christ Real to You?

Most people know that there was a man called Jesus who lived long ago. So many don't know that Jesus Christ is alive today, working in this world. He is not real to the lives of so many.

Yet, there are many others who know the Lord Jesus Christ in a personal daily relationship. They talk to Him and walk with Him. He is real to them every day and always. Jesus said, "And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:20).

If Jesus is not real to you, invite Him into your life. The Spirit of Christ is everywhere. Only faith recognizes His presence. The Spirit of Christ lives in the hearts of all who find Him real in their lives. They know His love and find His help day after day. "Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His" (Romans 8:9).

The Spirit of Christ is the same Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead. Believe that Jesus died on the cross for all your sins. Believe that Jesus is risen from the dead. Confess Him as your Lord.

As a believer, confess with your mouth even now, "Jesus is Lord." He will make Himself real to you. "And no one is able to say, 'Jesus is Lord,' except by the Holy Spirit" (1 Corinthians 12:3 NLT). Ask the Spirit of God to make Christ real to you.
