How did we ever end up in Christ? Part 1.

The wonders of being in Christ!

All facts about you because you are in union with the King of Kings, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

“in Christ”
“in Him”

The church age is the age when all who believe in Christ are placed in Christ.

Christ took His place seated at God’s Right Hand after He had accomplished the work of our salvation at the cross.

This work gave Christ the title in righteousness to secure for every believer a place in Christ’s place.

In Christ, we find our new life, the same perfect indestructible life that Christ possesses.

2CO 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (KJV)

The life we possess in Christ is a life that no man ever had until Christ rose from the dead!

This is life which cannot be touched by any question of sin, death, the judgment of God, or the power of satan.

Christ’s work on the cross also provided the ground in Christ for the righteousness in which we as believers are now found.

John 14 says that this is the birthright of believers, when the Spirit has come, is to know these things to be true about them.
