Paul talks a lot about being in Christ. Between Romans 3 and Romans 6, Paul has given us seven significant ideas about being in Christ.

  • Faith (Romans 3:26)
  • Redemption (Romans 3:24)
  • Peace (Romans 5:1)
  • Rejoicing in God (Romans 5:11)
  • Abundance of grace, gift of righteousness (Romans 5:17)
  • Being alive unto God (Romans 6:11)
  • Eternal life (Romans 6:22)

Romans 8 opens with “No condemnation”.

Understanding what it means to be in Christ might be the key bit you need to really understand Paul’s writings. To take a stab at it:

Being in Christ is to be included in the Lord’s church. The church is the social organism which forms Christ’s earthly body now. Once one is incorporated into it by baptism, the Christian is in Christ himself. (1 Corinthians 12:13, Romans 6:3, Galatians 3:26-27)
