Daily Good News with Alan Wright - April 3, 2017

You Are In Christ [Part 2]


Are you ready for some good news?

When you are “in Christ,” you are rich with the benefits of the redemptive work of Christ.

Today’s Text: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,” (Ephesians 1:3, ESV)

Our new broadcast series on Ephesians is all about discovering who you really are. The beginning point of understanding your identity as a follower of Christ is accepting the radical good news that you are “in Christ.” Here are some of the scriptural affirmations of your standing “in Christ.”
