“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world…” –Ephesians 1:4
A close examination of the apostle Paul’s writing shows that he never used the word “Christian.” In fact, the word “Christian” is only used three times in Scripture:
The title of “Christian” was primarily used of the world to describe those who were “little Christs.” Paul, however, described believers, not in accordance to a title, but rather a position. He always deemed us as being “in Christ.” And the truth is, the work of Christ in salvation was not accomplished to give you a title, but rather to secure you in a position. In Him, you have been crucified, buried, risen, and seated in the heavenlies! The next time someone asks if you are a Christian, tell them, “Yes,” but also tell them you are in Christ!
