We are in Christ. Being in Christ will not automatically get you to enjoy everything that belongs to you in Christ, or the benefits of being in Christ. Enjoying what’s available begins with “knowing what’s available”, then you reach out in faith and take possession of it. Paul said in Acts 20:32, “And now I entrust you to God and the message of his grace that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those he has set apart for himself.” In other words, without revelation from the word there will be no possession or enjoyment of inheritance! 1 Corinthians 2:12 says, “And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.” Hallelujah!
People who don’t know, and who don’t exercise their faith for what they know, will continue to live like beggars. They will keep begging God in prayer for what they should be enjoying free of charge!
The list below reveals what kind of life we have in Christ.
1) Life in Christ is a life of bliss (John 10:10)
2) Life in Christ is a life of love – enjoying the wonderful love of God (1 John 3:1)
3) Life in Christ is a life of miracles – divine interventions
4) It’s a life of absolute freedom. Freedom from sin, satan, fear, curses, and other bondages (Galatians 5:1, Hebrews 2:14-15)
5) Life in Christ is a life of hope (Colossians 1:27)
6) It’s a life of blessing and favour (1 Peter 3:9, Ephesians 1:3)
7) Life in Christ is a supernatural and divine life (2 Peter 1:4, John 1:12)
8) It’s a life of power and dominion (Luke 10:19)
9) A triumphant and victorious life (1 John 4:4, 2 Corinthians 2:14)
10) A life of peace and joy (John 14:27, 15:11)
11) A life of glory (John 17:22, 2 Corinthians 3:18)
12) Life in Christ is a life of progress, abundance and success (Proverbs 4:18, 2 Corinthians 9:8)
Enjoy your life in Christ by faith, obedience and walking in love.
