In Him We Have Our Being
Acts 17:28- For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ (NLT)
Simply put, our theme text is saying that it is in Christ that we have our existence. In other words there is no existence without Christ. There is no living without Christ. There is no moving forward without Christ being in our lives. There is no fun without Christ.
It makes sense because nothing that gets disconnected from its source ever exist or function well to its full capacity. If you take a Fish out of the river, in no time it will die, likewise when you take a branch out of a vine it will dry up in no time. God is our creator and as such, he is our source. Therefore anyone that does not have Him in their life by being born again does not exist. Soon they will dry up just like the branches and the fishes outside their sources.
This is a fact and a truth and evidently so even scientifically proven. Stay in Christ and you will never have any deadliness in any area of your life because everything that concerns you will have life because you are in Him the giver and source of life.
In John 15:5, Jesus clearly states that without him we can do nothing.
