The Christian Is In Christ (our standing) ~“It is doubtlessnot profitable for me to boast. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord: I know a man in Christ…” (2 Corinthians 12:1-2a).
Christ Is In The Christian (our state or status)~“Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?” (2 Corinthians 13:5a). “To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: whichis Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27).
Mansions For Christians (prepared in heaven)~Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.In My Father’s house are many mansions;if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you” (John 14:1-2).
Mansions for God (with Christians on earth) ~“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him’” (John 14:23).
Interesting Side Note~The word mansion (or abode or dwelling place) in the original, is the same in both the above verses in the Gospel of John.
