Remember that line from that Tom Cruise movie?
The chick says to him “You had me at ‘hello’.”
That’s the feeling I get from the phrase …
“those who are Christ’s at His presence.”
(I COR 15:23)
Christ is busy with things… creation, reconciliation, justification, and vivification, etc.
When finally, He gets around to stage two of vivification — He turns to us… and WE ARE HIS… “You had me at ‘hello’” is kinda what we say to Him.
We are His. And the magic between us begins “at His presence.”
