IN CHRIST AN EASTER LIFE IS YOUR LIFE
Christ is alive and present in you.

Your ‘In Christness’, is not the result of a lucky draw! Calvinism lied to you! Neither is it the result of your "choice" to follow Jesus!
Something doesn't become true by popular vote! Or by our beliefs! If it wasn't true to begin with, we're wasting our time trying to "believe" it true!
Faith happens to you when you encounter the good announcement!
[It is] of God’s doing are we IN CHRIST (1 Cor 1:30).
For “evangelical theology” to miss the meaning of humanity’s inclusion IN CHRIST before they even knew about it or believed it, is to completely miss the point of the death, descent into hell, resurrection and ascension of Jesus!
This would make Jesus irrelevant and reduce the salvation of the human race to their own fate managed by institutionalized religion, attaching mere sentimental value to an historic Jesus who died and rose again.
By dying our death as fully God and fully man, once and for all (not for a "select few!"), death became the doorway, whereby Jesus would enter into our hell and deepest darkness and sense of lostness and loneliness as a result of the lies we believed about ourselves - to triumphantly lead us out as his trophies and relocate us face to face with the Father of the universe! Eph 4:7,8 and 9 See mirror bible!
All this happened while we were still dead in our trespasses and sins! Eph 2:5,6. Co-quickened, co-raised, co-seated in his Executive authority [his right hand]. Now ponder Colossians 3:1-3 and engage your thoughts with Throne room realities!
