In Christ

This week I have extra time to journal.  I've been feeling unwell physically, but it's given me the opportunity to focus on God and to read. So it's been a blessing in disguise!

Have you meditated on what it means to be IN CHRIST?   What an amazingly beautiful reality. I'm letting these truths sink in; meditating on the reality of being In Christ and Him in me.  It's real and true and we exist in it now.  All thanks to God for His provision of grace through Jesus Christ our Lord! To God be the Glory!  These are just some of the verses that stand out to me.  As you read them rest on them.  If you are in Christ these truths are true of you... NOW.   I hope you'll let the beautiful reality of who you in Christ sink in deeply, believing it, resting in it.  May the joy of the Lord will rise up in you with shouts of praise to God, with hearts overflowing with thankfulness.
