I AM IN CHRIST
"In Him we live, and move, and have our being."
(Acts 17:28 NKJV)
There are over 140 NT scriptures that declare that all born again believers are now dwelling in Christ. We are now in Christ. We are now in Christ. Christianity is not a religion about God, it is a loving, intimate, eternal relationship with God.
The most important thing you need to know is who you are and what you have in Christ. You need to know the reality of your forgiveness in Christ. You need to know the reality of your liberation in Christ. You need to know the reality of your righteousness in Christ. You are a righteous new creation in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17-21)
Being in Christ means we are permanently united to God. (1 Corinthians 6:17) Being in Christ means we can never be separated from God. (Romans 8:38-39) Think about the process of brewing coffee. When we add in the water we produce the finished product. What is the end result? The water is in the coffee and the coffee is in the water – they become one property, one single liquid item. Just like water is in coffee, we are now in Christ. We are now partakers of His life, His nature, His spirit, His righteousness, His Kingdom, His Word, His Glory, His salvation, His mercy, His grace, His love, His peace, and His joy. (John 15:3-5)
