The person of Christ, “now”.

The person of Christ the invisible God…in whom we place our faith. Getting beyond the death of Christ takes us to a place of faith….not by sight. Faith gets beyond the suffering Savior and takes to a place of resurrection and exaltation.  The resurrection of Christ from the tomb is hard to fathom in human intellect.  Only faith can be placed in the evidence not seen.

Everyone knows what Christ did 2000 years ago…but what’s Christ doing now, present tense today from His Throne of Grace? Are you in Christ today? Is Christ in you today? What about having His witness in your heart? What about the power of Salvation in your soul and body? What about being, living, and walking like children of God? Let’s examine the person of our enthroned Christ and His effect upon the heart and life of a child of God. Christ, In whom…In whom…In whom…

In whom we have…redemption even the forgiveness of sins
In whom we have…obtained an inheritance
In whom…we trusted
In whom…we believed
In whom…we are “sealed” with the Holy Spirit
In whom we are…builded together as a habitation of God through the Spirit

Christ is a living Savior…in whom we have and in whom we are new creatures in Christ. We are His workmanship “created in Christ Jesus”. The Bible says “In Him” we live, move, and have our being. As you have received Christ, “walk in Him”.  There is no condemnation to those who are “in Christ”. In His person. In HIs character, and in His make-up. We are members of His holy body. By whom we have access through faith… into the power of God’s Divine Grace.

Christ is a living personality seated at the right hand of the Father. Christ is alive! Now! Christ makes new creatures now! Christ is with the Father now! By Christ all things consist. Christ in you “proves” you are made new by God. You have hope when Christ is in you and you’re in Christ. You have hope and are without condemnation when you’re in Christ. Don’t walk in the flesh. Walk in the Spirit. Walk in Christ and let Christ live though your character and make-up. Prove what is acceptable to Him.

We serve a risen Savior who is Lord of our lives. Chris has all power over the flesh! Christ has all authority over sin! As many as are “led” by Christ, these believers  are definitely children of God. Christ is alive and keeps our hearts pure and right. He is able. He does because He is…God. It’s the person of Christ that produces holiness of heart and holiness of conduct in the child of God’s state of being and present life on earth. Without faith its impossible to have Christ. Without Christ its impossible to please God.

Christ in you is your “future hope”…if you keep and don’t depart from faith in Him. His person is morally powerful! His person is so powerful that a sinner can be made and saint of God. So powerful that a believer can live holy and right! Through committment Christ will “keep” you. It’s His person that forgives and morally changes the human soul. It’s His person that enacts and produces holiness of character in you. 

It’s all about Christ “in whom” we have so great a Salvation that the world often misunderstands. Christ “in whom” we are saved and changed. Christ “in whom” we are blessed by the power of His Holy Spirit. Christ “in whom” makes us witnesses in all the world to glorify Him and bring honor to His Holy name. Let the name of Christ be known “in all the world!”

In whom we have…redemption even the forgiveness of sins
In whom we have…obtained an inheritance
In whom…we trusted
In whom…we believed
In whom…we are “sealed” with the Holy Spirit
In whom we are…builded together as a habitation of God through the Spirit

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
