Because of the mercy of God, Christians are the most blessed people on earth. A case could be made that the two words, “in Christ,” are the two most important words in the Bible. Our spiritual blessings from God are given to us in Christ. We have redemption in Christ. Our forgiveness and righteousness are in Christ. Two stories from the Old Testament help us to understand what being in Christ spiritually is like. Noah’s ark and when the Israelites put blood on the sides and above their doors in Egypt. Noah and his family entered into the ark and the Israelites entered into homes. If they remained inside they remained safe. Judgment was happening on the outside and yet they were safe. And for us, if we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and follow Him, we will be safe from judgment, and what Christ has is now also ours.
