Colossians(Program #38) – In Christ and According to Christ

What does it mean to be “in Christ”? Many places in the New Testament, especially in the letters of Paul the Apostle, use this term. Well, the easiest answer is to say that according to the facts, whatever is true of Him is true of us. For example, we died in Him and we were made alive in Him. As I said, these are the facts. But, what about our experience?  If we’re regenerated, born again. Then without doubt, we have these divine facts as our spiritual history, but we may not have a corresponding experience: being in Him and living according to Him.

Philippians (Program #42) -Doing Everything in the Name of the Lord by Being Saturated with His Riches

What did the apostle mean when he said “I am able to do all things in Him Who empowers me” in Philippians 4:13.  Wouldn’t you like to know the secret?

Despite what it says in the Bible, we have a different way that we tend to hear it.  We like to hear it “I am able to do all things through Him”, but this says “I am able to do all things IN Him, who empowers me.”  The apostle Paul uses  similar phrase in Colossians 3:17 “whatever you do in word or in deed, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus.”  What we are going to explore what it means to be in His name, what it means to be in Him and to be in the name of the Lord Jesus.

This matter been in the Lord’s name, praying in His name, doing things in His name is greatly misunderstood. This message, this fellowship would unload us of some concepts that really hinder us in our experience with the Lord just from our misunderstanding of this phrase “in His name” or “in Him”.

We were thinking that in such a verse where God is really promising there to do something outside of us somehow to make us strong enough that we are able to do the things that we are trying to do.  But it is very different as what we are going to see today.  It’s not just tagging His name onto something, but it’s really been one with Him.
