IN ADAM OR IN CHRIST

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1, 2 ESV)

Being in Christ is infinitely better than being in Adam. In Christ, there is no condemnation; in Adam, there is nothing but condemnation. In Christ, there is freedom; in Adam, there is slavery. In Christ, the Spirit sets you free from the demands of the law; in Adam, you are bound by every jot and tiddle. In Christ, the Spirit empowers you to keep the essence of the law, which is love; in Adam the Spirit convicts you of sin, righteousness, and the judgement to come.

Oh what a glorious thing to be in Christ!
