Faith IN Jesus Christ

Re: Verse reading–Proverbs 3:5-6; Galatians 2:15-21; Ephesians 2:8-10 (day six)  
“We. . .(know) that a man is not justified by observing the Law, but by faith IN Jesus Christ. .  and the life that I now live, I live by faith IN the Son of God.”  (Galatians 2:15-16, 20)  Peculiar language.  Very specific.  Overlooked at times for its familiarity. Just as some people believe IN the power of positive thinking, we believe IN Jesus.  Jesus is the FOCUS of our faith.  No argument here.  But, Paul may also be pointing to the LOCATION of the believer as he exercises faith.  We are IN Christ, supernaturally joined to Him, resting in Him, obeying Him, rejoicing in Him.  This union with Christ gives faith its power.  Christians are not spectators to the life of God.  We are participants.  Shareholders.  Are you IN Christ today, friend?  Have you confessed Him as Lord?  If He is IN you, you are IN Him.  Trust!  Discover the power of your new position!
