163 - What Does it Mean to be

October 9, 2011
"In Christ."  Martin Luther puts it this way:

"Everything which Christ has becomes the property of the believing soul; everything which the soul has, becomes the property of Christ. Christ possesses all blessings and eternal life: they are thenceforward the property of the soul. The soul has all its iniquities and sins: they become thenceforward the property of Christ. It is then that a blessed exchange commences."

Keen listening.

The following is a study on Romans 8:1.
