Is Christ Formed in You?

The Apostle Paul expresses his anxiety over the church in Galatia similar to a mother in travail over her child in childbirth. We feel his concern that he shares with us as he travels’ in prayer for them. “My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you…Gal.4:19.

Formed, morphoo strong’s #3445  To form. Schema and Morphoo are in bold contradistinction. “Scheme” equates to external form or outer appearance. Morphoo and Morphe, its related noun, refer to internal reality. Galatians 4:19 speaks of a change in Character, becoming conformed to the character of Christ in actuality, not merely in semblance.

 

 

I would ask this question. Is there anybody travailing over people in church’s today? With an overpowering passion that is focused on the transformative work of Christ in the lives of people.

      i feel that today people are coming into the body of Christ with little to no prayer backing which has gone up prior to them repenting and receiving salvation. It’s all Gods work but prayer paid forward on behalf of the lost brings deeper pools of His presence. Something i ponder.
