In Christ

“For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (Colossians 2:9).

In Colossians the preposition in introduces a multitude of information concerning the person of Christ, His relationship to us, and ours to Him. The “in’s” are as follows: The in of redemption: “In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins” (1:14). The in of fullness: “For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell” (1:19). The in of Christ’s indwelling: “God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (1:27). The in of working: “I also labor, striving according to His working, which worketh in me mightily” (1:29). The in of bonding love: “That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love” (2:2). The in of hidden treasure: “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (2:3). The in of steadfastness: “Joying and beholding your order, and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ” (2:5). The in of walking: “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him” (2:6). The in of growth and stability: “Rooted and built up in Him, and stablished in the faith” (2:7). The in of deity: “For in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” (2:9). The in of completeness: “Ye are complete in Him” (2:10). The in of spiritual surgery: “In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ” (2:11).

Always remember: God is in Christ (2:9); Christ is in us (1:27); we are in Christ (2:10). NPS
