In Christ Jesus

Here's another study for me. If I click the link below, I will see a new window showing a number of verses with that specific phrase, "In Christ Jesus".

What I've done here is to combine several of the attributes found in those scriptures of being In Christ and put them together here in one paragraph. It is very comforting.

In Christ Jesus, I am justified by His grace and redeemed. I am made alive to God and dead to sin. I am the recipient of the gift of eternal life. I am uncondemmend and will walk according to the Spirit. I am made free from the law of sin and death, and alive to the law of the spirit of life. I am unseparated from the love of God and sanctified and called to be a saint. I am made righteous and free. I am the recipient of the promise of the spirit, and am justified by faith. I am made a son of God through faith. I am equal to each other and no better or worse than each other. I am justified by faith working through love. I am made a new creation, a faithful saint, and made alive with Christ. I am raised with Christ and sit together with Christ in heavenly places. I am the recipient of God's kindness, and am created for good works. I am brought near by the blood of Christ, so that I am made bold, and with confidence have access through faith. I am made perfect and strong in the grace, that I may also obtain salvation. I will suffer persecution.

You can see the advantages of being found in Christ. So if I study further, I will see how it is that I too can be found in Christ.

Galatians 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Am I listening to what God is saying in His word?
