What does it mean to be "in Him"? To BE in Him is the New Covenant REALITY and that Union is the very reality in which we now live, breathe, and have our BEING. As New Covenant believers and children of God, we should never view ourselves outside of this reality. Old Covenant people 'followed' God as He led them. New Covenant people has God dwelling in them. We no longer follow God, we are in UNION with Him. How can we 'follow' our New identiy? The truth is, you can't 'follow' who you are, you just ARE in Him. It makes no sense. We simply live from our NEW BEING, this is the REALITY of the NEW CREATION.
