In Christ Jesus

In Christ Jesus

Romans 8:1-4 says: "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit." (ESV) Three words in those verses are key: "In Christ Jesus!" Here's some powerful Good News: God Sent His Son to keep the Law for lawbreakers-us. He paid our penalty for sin. The spotless Lamb of God died in our place as a condemned lawbreaker. He likewise conquered death. If we are "In Christ Jesus," this Good News is our blood-bought reality! More Good News follows in the same Chapter, verses 38 & 39: "For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." (ESV) In Christ Jesus we are inseparable from God! He has us and He holds us! There is no better place to be than in Christ Jesus!
