If You Are In Christ

If you are in Christ, that means you have a personal relationship with God. It means your sins are forgiven, and you have eternal life in Christ. It also means that you have the love and grace of God in Christ. You have all the blessings of God in Christ.

"How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we belong to Christ" (Ephesians 1:3, NLT). 

What does it mean for you to be blessed in Christ? It means that you are trusting in Christ as your Lord and Savior. It means that you believe he died for your sins, and he is risen from the dead. Also, it means the Spirit of Christ lives in you, and the same Spirit has baptized you into the body of Christ, which is his church.

How could you be blessed in Christ? Only God could make it possible for you to be blessed in Christ. God sent the good news to you about Christ through the Bible. God is the one who lovingly brought you to Christ. He is the one who changed your heart. God enabled you to trust in Jesus as Lord.
