Living In Him
For He has rescued us and has drawn us to Himself from the dominion of darkness and has transferred us to the Kingdom of His beloved Son 14 in whom we have redemption [because of His sacrifice, resulting in] the forgiveness of our sins [and the cancellation of sins’ penalty].
Colossians 1:13-14, Amplified Bible
The New Covenant, established by our Father, was to restore our fellowship with Him before man’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden. He has accomplished ALL that His heart intended. First, He forgave and eradicated our sins so He could live within us. Second, He gave us a New Heart that is tender and sensitive to His desires. Third, He gave us a New Spirit so His Life can flow through us. Fourth, our Father took us out of the kingdom of darkness and placed us in the Kingdom of God, also called, In Christ.
Another phrase used throughout the New Testament is, In Him. This phrase also refers to the Kingdom of God ruling and reigning in the spirits and souls of His children who abide In Christ. As we allow our Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit to live within and through us, we fulfill the beautiful purpose for which we were created!
