What Does It Mean to be “In Christ?”

Regardless of how we happen to be doing in the obedience department today, there is great joy and delight to be found in the fact that Jesus has trusted and obeyed in our place, and now his faith and perfect obedience are credited to us every moment of every day.  To be in Christ means that whenever the Father looks at us, he sees us wrapped around with the righteousness of his Son and he is delighted.
