Christian or Christ-IN?

With words there is power and the change of a few letters or arrangement could carry a total different meaning for the reader. Let’s look at Christian vs. Christ-IN.

Believers in Jesus Christ and followers of his word are called “Christians”. This term was first used with the disciples in Acts 11:26 “….And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch”. Something interesting about the disciples’ title as Christians is that it was promised to them and others chosen to receive his spirit that he (Christ) would be IN them. This is confirmed in various parts of the gospel including John 17:23 “I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one…” also John 14:20 “At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you”. Christ made it very clear that he will abide IN those that were his and that “through their word” others will believe. We could technically say that the disciples were “Christ-IN”. This honor of embodying the spirit of Christ would mean the same for them, as God being IN Christ. It gives them authority to do great things in his name and to save lives as he did. Today the same is true for the modern day disciples of Christ. They carry the same light and power as the disciples of the past, only thing blocking now is that instead of believing that they are a Christian they should know that Christ-IN them.
