CLOSING HYMN

         “Standing On The Promises”           pg271

 

“And be found in him”

(Philippians 3:9)

   “Two small words ‘in him’, two small words which in and of themselves are insignificant.  One is a common preposition and the other is a personal pronoun.  Yet these two words are full of grace and truth.  In these two words are found the very essence of the gospel.  Why?  Because the person the pronoun refers to is the Lord Jesus Christ, the God Man, the Savior of sinners.  And the simple preposition describes the glorious position and relationship of every believer as being in Christ.

     God ‘chose us in Him (Eph. 1:4); we are ‘justified’ in Him (1 Cor. 6:11); we are ‘the righteousness of God’ in Him (2 Cor. 5:21); in Him is ‘forgiveness of sins’

 (Eph. 1:7); in Him we are sanctified and redeemed

(1 Cor. 1:30); in Him is ‘peace with God’ (Rom. 5:10); in Him we have ‘died to sin’ (Rom. 6:2); in Him we are ‘alive to God’ (Rom. 6:11); in Him we have assurance of faith (1 John 2:5); in Him ‘the love of God is perfected’ in all those who believe (1 John 2:5); and in Him we have ‘obtained an inheritance’ of eternal riches.

     Truly the Lord Christ is everything and all those who are in Him by faith are those who receive and inherit all the great and precious promises given in Christ Jesus.”
