In Christ

Wednesday August 1st, Colossians 2: 11-15 Entering into this fullness is not something you figure out or achieve. It's not a matter of being circumcised or keeping a long list of laws. No, you're already in—insiders—not through some secretive initiation rite but rather through what Christ has already gone through for you, destroying the power of sin. If it's an initiation ritual you're after, you've already been through it by submitting to baptism. Going under the water was a burial of your old life; coming up out of it was a resurrection, God raising you from the dead as he did Christ. Being in Christ is “Being” in Christ. O the work the Church puts into keeping the in people in and the out people who may be different from the in people, out. As Christians we are not ruled by the rule of Law but by the rule of Grace. God loves you, not start acting like it.
