Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Romans 3:24

There is a redemption in Christ Jesus. This means that redemption is not ‘with’ Christ Jesus but ‘in’ Christ Jesus.

Not many understand the IN Christ principle. When a man is justified, he has been judged and declared not guilty. Jesus didn’t give us a life where we’re fighting to be declared not guilty at the end of the day.

When you are justified IN Christ Jesus, this means that your justification came inside Christ i.e. you are justified because Christ is justified.

Look at the way the AMP renders the opening text,

and are being justified [declared free of guilt of sin, made acceptable to God, and grabbed eternal life] as a gift by His [precious, undeserved] grace, through the redemption [ the payment of our sin] which is [provided] in Christ Jesus. 

God’s righteousness is God’s justification of you, and this redemption is provided in Christ Jesus. That if a man can only be found in Christ, he would cease to be bound by the elements of death.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says

therefore if any man be IN Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. 

When you are located in Christ (not with Christ) you are a new type of man irrespective of your history.

The power of the life of God does not belong to those who seek to be identified WITH Christ when it is favorable, but those who are located IN Christ. This is the word of the Lord to you today,

This is war, and there is no neutral ground. If you are not on my side, You’re against me; if you are not helping, you are making things worse. Matthew 12:30(MSG)

Your life is hid IN Christ IN God; the devil can not access your life to touch it.

I stand in Christ. I am fully justified because I am located in Christ Jesus. I bask in the light of this truth today!


Luke 11:23(MSG)
