Living in Christ
In all except one of his New Testament letters, the
apostle Paul uses the phrase ‘in Christ’. It can be found
a staggering 164 times and, because of this, the idea it
encapsulates has been described by one scholar as
Paul’s ‘magnificent obsession’. So, what does being ‘in
Christ’ really mean?
In this issue, Selwyn helps us to find out by leading us
through Paul’s two epistles to the Corinthian church —
Bible books in which many ‘in Christ’ phrases are
found. Here we discover who we are as Christians and
what amazing blessings we have and can receive
because we are united to Jesus. Be encourage as you
contemplate, among other things, the grace and
righteousness you have received, how the Holy Spirit
can help you live a transformed life, the security of
knowing God and the promise of eternal life.
