In Christ, In God

Jesus, as the begotten son of God died on the cross, thus taking the penalty of sin upon himself that mankind may find life in Christ and forgiveness of his sins through Christ's death, and life in him through His resurrection.

So, I was thinking this through. Christ is in God the Father. He says “I and the Father are one”.

We come into life through Christ. Our lives are hide in Him or we are His body.

Colossians 3:3-4 ESV 
     For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with  him in Glory.

Ephesians 1:22
     And He (God) put all things under His (Christ) feet and gave Him (Christ) as head over all things to the church which is His body, the fullness of him who fill all in all.  The words in parenthesis are mine.

So, we who are sons of God are so, because we are the body of Christ. And Christ is one with the Father. Therefore – as such, we who are born into Christ are in the Father.

I just had a picture of the known fact that my personal body is made up of individual cells. They form all the parts that make up my body. Moreover all things we know on earth are made up of cells.

Cell that make up the whole
So Christ's body is made up of the cells (believers) of all who are born of Him. And therefore we are IN GOD through Christ. This is so much bigger than heaven and earth, death and life.

God created the world and man for a purpose and for His pleasure. We think of the afterlife in glory with the LORD as the end. I suspect it will only be the beginning of something we cannot  imagine or conceive.  I can hardly wait.
