In Christ Alone

by Pastor Afolabi Oladele

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:4-10

Indeed, quickened together with Him and raised together with Him, but you cannot sit together with Him, but only IN Him in heavenly places! We have neither existence nor recognition before the living God outside of the person of Christ. This message was first broached in the rejection of Israel as described in Deuteronomy 32:5 and now elaborated to us that we were brought to a place of privilege –Romans 5:1, 2 (NLT) by Christ and of necessity we must be conformed to His image – Romans 8:29. So beloved, are you in Christ and is Christ in you? Selah.
