Scripture… As We Live It #267

This is the 267th passage in “Scripture… As We Live It.”

There is therefore now no condemnation acceptance for those who are in Christ Jesus who do not believe and act in a manner that we approve. (Romans 8:1 re-mix)

    Alan what understanding do you have when the Word of God has the word “in” — in front of Christ Jesus in this verse?

    My understanding of the structure of the Word of God it means your “in fellowship with your Heavenly Father, in alignment and harmony with Him.

    Either were out of fellowship with Him or not. “in” indicates your in fellowship with Him–Therefore you don’t have the condemnation. Your not condemning yourself.

    Then the other structure with Christ “in” YOU is talking about the spirit with in you. Cool isn’t? Now read the Word with that in mind and the Word of God opens up in more detail and understanding.

    Jim,

    That sounds right to me. Did you think I believed otherwise for some reason?
