My Men’s Bible Study group begins Colossians this week.
As he so often does, Paul constantly talks about being “in Christ.” (Literally, that’s why it’s a much better term to use Body of Christ and not church to refer to believers today.)
Good ol’ J. Vernon McGee says the following about Paul’s constant references of being “in Christ.”
(J. Vernon’s so cool!)
“Notice that they are ‘in Christ’ but they are ‘at Colosse.’ The most important question is not, Where are you at? but Who are you in?
That may not be good grammar, but it sure is good Bible!”
