IMMERSED IN CHRIST

For as many of you as been baptized into Christ have put on Christ” –   Galatians 3:27

LIGHT FOR NOW: To live in Christ is to habituate in glory.

Baptism in to Christ and putting on Christ are two different phenomena. Baptism into Christ is like water into water; inseparable oneness. Putting on Christ is living in His new environment. As a believer in Christ, you have been completely immersed in Christ that He has become all that there is to you and seen in you. This is your new reality. Now that you have put on Christ by virtue of new birth, you are in Him and He is in you. 1 John 4:13 says, “…we dwell in him, and he in us”. Also, Colossians 3:3-4 says your life is hid with Christ in God, and Christ is your life. Christ is your dwelling place, Christ is your new world. You live in the environment called Christ. Make this your daily confession and meditation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “if any man be in Christ”. Living in Christ is the place to be. To live in Christ is to habituate in glory. Sickness, poverty, fear or any other form of darkness cannot be found in Christ. The depraved and defeated human life has been supplanted with the very life and nature of God.

Since you are now immersed in Christ, it is impossible for you to still those conditions you once had when you were outside Christ. The problems, misery, pains and challenges that were associated with your natural human life have all passed away in Christ. The concluding part of 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) says, “Behold, all things have become new”. God wants you to see, think and have this consciousness that you are now in a new environment called Christ where all things about your life is new, excellent and full of glory. Therefore, walk boldly, full of faith and confidence because you are in Christ. Your life is now secured from all the viruses in the world. You are living in Christ where no virus can penetrate. Hallelujah!!!
