Ephesians 1 - Being in Christ

Christ in Me - Me in Christ!
We always talk about Jesus living in us. "Jesus is in my life!" We ask little children, "Do you have Jesus in your heart?" But our relationship with Christ is all encompassing! Not only are we supposed to have him in us - we are supposed to be in Him! If you take a dive into a swimming pool, you are going to be in water - the water will surround you and engulf you. That's how we're supposed to be with Jesus! We have been baptized into Christ!

Clothed Like Shrimp!
Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature. Romans 13:14
King James says, "put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ!" When you put on a sport uniform, you look like an athlete. When you put on a business suit, you look like a business person. But it goes deeper than that! When you take a shrimp, and wrap a piece of bacon around it, and put it on the grill, the bacon becomes part of the shrimp, and affects the flavor of the shrimp! The bacon flavor soaks into the shrimp! Jesus wants to change your flavor! He wants to put zest in your life! He wants to change everything around you, and make all things new. So put Christ on and let him make it all new!!!

  1. Awesome this is really what I needed to read this day. I have been struggling with the flesh. Sometimes I tend to be lazy and stay in bed instead of getting up and worshiping and reading the word. Thank you !
