And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:1-14
We are included in Christ!
We live in Him and He lives us. We are joined together in Him.
We may feel rejected sometimes by people, communities or even churches.
We may feel sometimes that we do not feet in.
We may think that we are on our own.
The truth is we are really in Christ!! Wooow! We are spirit beings in real and Christ is inside our spirit in real.
How did this work ?
When we heard the gospel of truth and believed in it, God literally put a mark on us.
And He brought us in the Kingdom of his Son, Jesus-Christ.
It’s not a physical mark but a spiritual one. Don’t look for a tattoo on your body ;).
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves […] Colossians 1:13
And guess what? God did not change his mind because we sinned or made a mistake. He is not a man. He is God and he is love.
He exalts his word above his name. If He said that he brought you in the Kingdom when you believed, you can be sure that you ARE indeed in the kingdom because you believed.
You are seated in the Heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 2:6
He does not lie
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19
In the beginning, God told Adam: « You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die. » Genesis 2:16-17
And we know that God had to keep His word, that’s why we die physically. And that’s why we were dead spiritually.
If God kept his word when Adam disobeyed don’t you think he will keep his word when you obeyed and received the Lord Jesus as your saviour by faith ?
You are included in Christ.
Hold on that truth today my friend!
A son of the Most High
