Are You in Christ Jesus?

by Pastor Ken

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death.

Romans 8:1-2

What does it mean to be “in Christ Jesus?”

To be “in Christ” is to live filled with God’s Holy Spirit. It means accepting the free gift of salvation that Jesus offers everyone. It means allowing Him to set you free – free from being bound by sin; free from the penalty of death.

It means Christ is not your co-pilot. He’s the One in charge.

When you are one with Christ, you have the only real solution to bad habits, wrong motives, temptations, and weaknesses, because our sinful nature can only be overcome by the power of Christ living in us.

So if you are in Christ Jesus, let Him have full control of your life — your burdens, habits, temptations… everything.

When you give it all over to Him, your life will gradually become a reflection of who He is. That means that when you are in Christ, then Christ will also be in you! And nothing on earth can harm you!

Being in Christ frees you from the slavery of sin. It erases any fear of death. In Christ, you can declare victory in your spiritual battles. Praise Jesus for setting us free!


Dear Lord,
I love You with all my heart. Please live in me and let me live in You. You are all I ever need. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
