To Be In Christ
The Bible tells us that Jesus was without sin. What does it mean to be without sin? Being born of a virgin through the Holy Spirit meant that Jesus did not inherit the sins of man. He was born of God. He was in the Father and the Father was in Him. Because of his perfect communion with His Father, He could understand scripture with no confusion of any kind. After all, He was its Author. Would He ever doubt its truth? Never! It was the Word of Abba Father Who was well-pleased with His Son. Our sinful condition goes down to the DNA. His did not. Many of us have the same DNA that Jesus had that can be awakened, brought back to life, if we commit ourselves to following Him. Without Him we have a nature that results in nihilistic despair and bitter resentment. Without God, we remain children of wrath. With Him we become children of the Promise.
