Transformation Today: A Daily Devotional With Victor Adeyemi
Topic: Being In Christ
Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.” Romans 8:9
Have you ever wondered what it really means to be ‘in Christ?’ Or maybe you tried to tell someone about Jesus and they asked you what it really means?
Being in Christ means that you are “the saved” because you have confessed with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and have believed in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. It means you belong to Him and He always protects and cares for His own.
Being in Christ also means that you are “the healed” because Jesus went to the cross, took the punishment required for our healing, and broke the power of sickness and disease. He literally took on himself every sickness and disease, pain and sorrow we could imagine on our behalf. The bible concluded in Is. 53:5 that “….by his stripes, we are healed.”
Being in Christ means you are “the delivered” because Colossians 1:13 says “who has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.” The devil no longer has any right over your life and you’re free!
All of the power that saves, heals and delivers came into this earth on the day of Pentecost in the person of the Holy Spirit and now that power is in you because you are in Him. Being in Christ means being filled with His Holy Spirit!
Confession: I am in Christ Jesus. Therefore, the power that saves, heals and delivers lives on the inside of me. I have the Spirit of Christ in me, so I am His and am in Him!
