The “in Christ ” expression says it all. The truth is, all spiritual blessing are found “in Christ” (Eph. 1:3); every last one of them. These tremendous spiritual blessings are found no where else:

Salvation (2 Tim. 2:10; Acts 4:12); no condemnation (Rom. 8:1); forgiveness (Eph. 1:7; Col. 1:14); becoming a new creature (2 Cor. 5:17); redemption (Col. 1:14; Eph. 1:17); reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:17-19; Eph. 2:13); eternal life (2 Tim. 1:1; 1 Jn. 5:11; Rom. 6:23); eternal glory (1 Pet. 5:10); grace (2 Tim. 2:1; Eph. 1:6); unity (Gal. 3:28); filled/complete (Col. 2:10); all spiritual blessings (Eph. 1:3).

How does one get “into Christ” to obtain these wonderful blessings? Preceded by faith in Christ and repentance of sins, one is “baptized into Christ” (Rom. 6:3; Gal. 3:27). Are you in Christ?
