Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

What We Are In Christ

During a conversation with some brothers and sisters in Christ not long ago, the subject came up concerning who the Bible says that we are, once we are "in Christ". Just as earlier this year, we had a discussion about what the Bible says happens to a person when he is born again, we realized as we discussed this matter that the Bible says that we become many things when we enter into Christ. Below is our first list. Any additions are very welcome.
