“In Christ” – Union with Jesus (part one)

Paul does not use the word Christian to describe who we are as believers. His most common phrase for those who put their faith in Jesus and follow Him is that they are “in Christ.” It is a short phrase that is easy to read over. But, do not undervalue the phrase's significance. Being ‘in Christ’ is the essence of the Christian experience.
Scripture: John 15:1-11

Living as Royalty - an allegory of Christianity

We are in Christ. Union with Christ is a dominant theme of the New Testament. We are a people who are joined together in unity with Jesus. Our identity is not our performance in being good. Our identity is that we are a people who partake in the free grace given to us by our Savior. This is an allegory about the Christian life. It is titled, “Living as Royalty.” It is an attempt to tell the story of our salvation using a different approach and different words.
Scripture: Ephesians 1:3-14
