"But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God and righteousness and sanctification and redemption." 1 Corinthians 1:30
Paul thought it was the greatest of blessings to be found "in Him" (see Philippians 3:9). Paul exchanged a set of rules for a friend. Hadn't you rather have a friend than a set of rules? Before this, Paul had the law. Now, he has the Lord, and what a difference! What a safe place to be found in Jesus Christ. If you are saved, you're not just a church member; you are in Christ. You are in His body, and He is in you. Talk about fellowship divine! You may be alone, but you'll never be lonely again because the Lord Jesus Christ is in you and you are in the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you have a hymnal at your disposal, find the hymn "In The Garden" and meditate on its truth: "He tells me I am His own."

Amen.~ Jude 24 Posts: 1503 | Registered: Jan 2009
