We're In!

Pastor Tom Lundeen


When we don’t know who we are, or if we have  ideas about who we are…it will impact everything about our life...


The more we realize that “we’re in…in Christ”, it will shape our understanding of our REAL ID in profound and very  ways.


1. The  Picture


What it means to be in Christ is a  theme in the New Testament.

The Apostle Paul used this expression the most (about  times).

The Apostle  also uses this expression… (note John 15:4a, 5; 17:20-23).


  •  in Christ” (note Ephesians 2:10)
  • “seated with Christ in heavenly places” (note Ephesians 2:6)
  • He “ in our hearts” (Ephesians 3:17)
  • Christ is “in us” (note 2 Corinthians 13:5) and we’re “in Him” (note 1 Corinthians 1:30).
  • In Christ we’re  (note Romans 8:1)…
  • …glorified (note Romans 8:30)…
  • …sanctified (note 1 Corinthians 1:2)…
  •  (note 1 Corinthians 1:9)…
  • …made alive (note Ephesians 2:5)…
  • …created  (note 2 Corinthians 5:17)…
  • …adopted (note Galatians 3:26)
  • And He “ us” (note Ephesians 1:4).


2. At the  of it All


The clearest and most  definition of the gospel is 1 Corinthians 15:1-8…

Note Galatians 2:20; Colossians 2:12; Romans 6:3-5


          A. I am in Christ’s crucifixion/ – not only did Jesus die for us; He also died  of us. And when He died for us and instead of us, He also placed us “in Him”, so we were crucified with Him. Note Matthew 27:37 and Colossians 2:14-15.


          B.  I am in Christ’s  (note Colossians 2:12a) – our  has been buried with Jesus (note Psalm 103:10-12; Isaiah 1:18; 38:17; 43:25; 1 John 1:9).


          C.  I am  with Christ (note Colossians 2:12-13) – We have been raised with Jesus so we now have the option and  to live a new life (note Romans 6:4-7, 11). Our old nature has one  setting…but if we are in Christ we are given a  nature (note Galatians 5:16-17, 24-25)…


Where are you finding your REAL ID: 


  •  Also this is what  symbolizes…
  • Being in Christ  everything in our lives.
  • Are you in Christ (said Yes to Jesus as Lord)?
  • If you have said Yes to Jesus as Lord, who/what is  your REAL ID?
