I am about to start series on what a believer has and is In Christ. This includes Jesus in you, power of God in you, the help of the Holy Spirit in you. All of this leads you to peace with the Father and the ability to make better decisions – guided by His direction.
Here is a Scripture in wording you may not recognize (by Eugene Peterson from The Message). It’s part of an eye opening look at the term In Christ and the rendering of Scripture that is fresh, worth pondering and praying about.
[ The Solution Is Life on God’s Terms ] With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death (Romans 8:1-2 The Message).
This series will be about ten to twelve blogs.
Stay tuned, jump in, and focus on Jesus.
