Living By Faith

MADE ALIVE WITH CHRIST

Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places… (Ephesians 1:20)

“Everything God did in Christ, He did for you, and it is credited to your account as if you did it.” – Mark Hankins

What really happened 2,000 years ago in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ?  What was God working out when He raised Christ from the dead? What was wrought in Christ? “Which he wrought,” means what He worked, what happened, or what God did in Christ when He raised Him from the dead.  Here’s what He wrought: He “hath put all things under his feet.” (Ephesians 1:22)

In the original Greek, there are no chapter divisions in Paul’s letters. The King James Version translators made chapter divisions for ease in writing and reading the Bible. There is no stopping place in Paul’s letters. Actually, he says, “Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all. And you…” (Ephesians 1:23; 2:1) You need to underline “and you.”  What God wrought in Christ was for you.

Are you finding yourself in Christ?  What God did in Christ, He did for you!

Confession: Everything God did in Christ, He did for me, and it is credited to my account as if I did it!
