IN Christ » What are the most important spiritual truths you have learned so far in your life?
In part five of this series on the Ask Eric Podcast, Eric Ludy discusses one of the most important spiritual truths he has learned thus far—the exchanged life and being IN Christ.
Paul declares that our hope of glory is Christ within us—the idea is that we need to live IN Christ. Position in the Christian life is very important; and your position defines your outcome. If you are in Adam, then we share in his rebellion. But when we repent, put off the “old man” and put on the “new man” (Jesus), then His work on the cross becomes ours. Romans 6 says that His death becomes our death, His burial becomes our burial, His resurrection becomes our resurrection, and His ascension becomes our ascension.
If you desire to live a victorious, triumphant, and joy-filled Christian life, then the secret is actually being in Christ. The only way to gain the merit, benefit, protection, and strength of clothing, a tower, or Jesus Christ is to actually find ourselves within them.
The exchanged life is how Christianity functions.
What’s your position? IN CHRIST!
