Meditate on “In Him” Scriptures

Meditate on “In Him” Scriptures

One of the fundamental areas of our lives,  when we give our lives to Christ is who we have become.  It is important, you meditate on the Word of God(Joshua 1:8) but focused on who you are in Christ Jesus.  This daily exercise will ensure you experience and become a sound mind.  

Who you think and know you are, goes a long way in helping you realise and living in the love of God.  

God loves you the way He loves Jesus

 

That is an important statement which the enemy of your soul will want you to dismiss but I encourage you, to believe what the Word of God says about you.  

Below is a list of scriptures(NKJV Bible) that gives you insight into what you are in Christ:

Acts 17:28

for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’

Romans 8:14

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Romans 8:15

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

2 Corinthians 5:21

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Ephesians 1:4

just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,

Ephesians 1:10

that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.

Philippians 3:9

 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

Colossians 1:9

 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

Colossians 2:6-7

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.

Colossians 2:9

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;

Colossians 2:10

and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

2 Thessalonians 1:12

that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 2:13

And again:
“I will put My trust in Him.”
And again:
“Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”

1 John 2:5

But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

1 John 2:6

He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

 

1 John 4:4

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
