The expression “in Christ” is at the very heart of Christianity and yet a phenomenal blinding has overcome many teachers of the Bible who give nothing to their students on its great truth. This expression or its equivalent is used no less than 169 times (according to John McKay). Being in Christ is a new life given to those once dead in sin. At the point of entering Him, they receive the Holy Spirit, the forgiveness of sins, all spiritual blessings (Eph 1:3; Ac 2:38) … but out of Christ there is no hope, only remorse, spiritual death and condemnation.
57 commentaries have been examined and not one was found that had a single reference to the all-important question of “How can a person enter the state of being IN CHRIST?” Read Romans 6:3, Gal 3:27 and I Cor 12:13, 2 Cor 5:17). Being “baptized into Christ” is the one act (immersion in water, not prayer or faith) that can bring a believer INTO CHRIST.
I will gladly assist you in your obedience if you will but repent and confess your faith. “Today is the day of salvation!” (2 Cor 6:2)
