In Christ Jesus
A Sermon on Ephesians 2:4-7
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (ESV)
The condition and state of the Christian; that which is true is to be grasped experientially; the doctrine of our union with Christ is fundamental to Christian life; Adam our federal head; this teaching explained; mystical union with Christ; a new spirit of life; regeneration makes a new Christian.
