Christ lives through us.

 I pray that the eyes of your heart [b]may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the [c]saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.  Eph. 1:18-19

The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us.  There is a war raging inside us but our new heart, our desires are more for Christ and the Father than for ourselves.  We have everything we need for life and godliness.  Paul wanted the eyes of our heart melted to this truth. 

Christ lives in and through us.  Paul says it is no longer I who live.  It is Christ who lives in me.  We give up our demands and have the beautiful desires of Christ.  We have a new heart.  We have the mind of Christ.  We die to self that Christ might live through us.  We are not better we are new creatures in Christ.
