“WHO IS CHRIST”
The word “Christ” is translated from the Greek word Christos, and it’s generally used in Christendom to refer to Jesus, the Messiah. However, Christ literally means “the Anointed One.”
1 Corinthians 1:30 says, “But of him (God) are ye in Christ Jesus…” When you’re born again, you come into Christ – the Anointed One and His anointing. No longer are you separate from Him; you’re now one with Him. Jesus and the church make up Christ. We are joint-heirs with Him. He’s the Head, and we’re the body.
It’s important also to note the full rendering of 1 Corinthians 1:30: “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness and sanctification and redemption….” Now that we’re in Christ, we’ve got access to the supernatural wisdom of God; Christ is our righteousness, our sanctification and our redemption.
