You may think you can be a little bit into Christ, but this is impossible. You are either in Him or not in Him. If you are “in Him,” you are “complete in Him” and “members of His body.” And you are “accepted in the Beloved.”
“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us.”
If a man is “in Christ, he is a new creature.”
If the Father accepts the Head, He will not reject the body. “He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.”
Do you actually think that you can be “in Him” and “out of Him” simultaneously? You cannot do that any more than you can be in the room and out of the room at the same time.
If you are in the Son, you are also in the Father, a double protection. “I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
You are in and fully in, or you are out, and fully out.
