What does it mean to be “in Christ”?

Who are we now?

When you accepted Christ into your life you changed. Maybe not to others but a change did happen in you. Your identity changed. Christ came to live in you. Galatians 2:20 – “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (NKJV)

“It is not longer I who live…” What does that mean to us? It means that we died into the life of the first Adam and were reborn into the life of the new Adam, Jesus Christ. What does that life look? It means that every day we remember who is in us. We declare who we are out load. “Christ lives in ME!” The same powerful Spirit that God used to raise Jesus from the dead lives in us. Wow! That Spirit is so powerful that it caused the earth to shake, the curtain to tear, rocks to split, and raise saints from the dead! Matthew 27: 51-53 – “Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were open; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.” (NKJV)

If that power can do all that, don’t you think it has the power to heal you? So, why do we walk in sickness. Many reasons but one is that we have not grasped the idea of the relationship we now have with Christ.

I’ll go into more of this later. But today, I just want you to meditate on what I said and what Galatians 2:20 means to you. Feel free to comment below.
