The Invitation to Remain in Christ

by Jerry Tipton | series |

One of the major themes of the New Testament is that followers of Jesus have union with Christ, they are “In Christ.” In fact, this phrase appears 165 times in the New Testament, but what does it mean to be “In Christ” and how does that change our lives? Rankin Wilbourne said, “It tells you a new story about who you are. In Christ means you have been given a new identity. God has called you into a new life, rooted in a history that predates you, anchored in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.” In short, to be ‘in Christ’ is to abide, which is our last invitation from God, to abide with Him, to be safe with Him.
