Blessings In Christ Jesus

“Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus” (II Timothy 1:1).

Paul, in writing his second epistle to Timothy, enumerates several special blessings that we, as believers, have “in Christ Jesus.” In order of appearance, they are listed as follows: “The promise of life which is in Christ Jesus” (1:1). We have eternal life because of Christ. “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus” (1:9). It was planned, “before the world began.” “In faith and love which is in Christ Jesus” (1:13). The “sound words” mentioned in this verse are to be held fast by our faith and love in Christ. “Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2:1). Strength for each new day is imparted by grace from the Lord. “That they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory” (2:10). Eternal salvation and glory rests solely upon Christ. For that cause we can “endure all things.” “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (3:12). The godly life can only be lived in Christ. “The holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (3:15). Salvation does come by our faith in Christ as is revealed in the word of God and can even be understood and received by “a child.”
