What does it mean to be "in Christ?"

For 2017, the phrase I am focusing on is "in Christ."  Each week, I will post 1 verse that includes the phrase "in Christ". I look forward to growing in understanding of what it means to be "in Christ."
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. (Romans 12:4-5)

Tweets and more tweets

Just one reason Christmas is such a big deal: every other religion says God is "out there." Christmas says that God has come right here. @mattpopovits

Playing on the Radio

Here a new song playing on the radio by Jordan Feliz.  I love the message on our identity and how God sees us.

You Are Reconciled

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.” (2 Corinthians 5:18-19)
