In Him

The phrase “In Him” appears over 160 in the Bible. Most often in the writings of Paul. This phrase refers to our relationship with Jesus Christ and the fact that we are united with him through faith. Here are just a few examples of the many “in him” verses in the Bible:

Ephesians 1:7: “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.”

Colossians 1:14: “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.”

Colossians 2:10: “And you are complete in him, who is the head of all principality and power.”

Romans 8:1: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”

Jude 1:6: “that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”

These verses all speak to the fact that through our relationship with Jesus Christ, we are forgiven, redeemed, and made complete. We are no longer condemned, but rather have the hope of eternal life with God.

The notes on the phrase, ‘In Christ/ In the’ Lord in the Translator’s New Testament are very interesting. They state, “Life ‘In Christ’ represents a new life-principle and the phrase may be regarded as a technical term in Paul’s theology… Thus the phrase describes the life of the Christian in intimate fellowship with Christ, through faith… ‘Being In Christ’ is an experience which unites Christians both with Christ and with one another.”

God sees you In Christ, but you must also see yourself In Christ. – Mark Hankins

But what does it mean to be “In Him”? It means that we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior and have entrusted our lives to him. It means that we are following his teachings and striving to become more like him every day. It means that we are relying on him for strength and guidance as we navigate this world.

So if you find yourself feeling lost or alone, remember that you are not alone. You are “In Him,” and through your relationship with Jesus, you have access to all the love, grace, and mercy that God has to offer. Take a moment to thank him for this incredible gift and ask him to help you live your life fully “in him.”

There is a radical change In Christ. Everything is changed. There is nothing left of what you used to be. – Mark Hankins

Living “In Him” is about more than just religious identity; it’s about a full and flourishing life that transcends the earthly and touches the divine. As you walk daily “In Him,” may you experience the full depth of His love and the transformation it brings to every aspect of your existence. Take a moment today to thank Him for this incredible gift and ask for the grace to live fully in the reality of being “In Him.”
