My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

How To Encourage A Christian
The surest way to encourage a Christian is to tell him where he is, the condition he’s in, and all that he has. Christians are inside of Christ, and are a perfect and fully functioning part of Him, having everything He does because of where they are. They cannot fall from the place they were placed, they cannot change an eternal condition given to them, and they cannot lose the benefits they were not responsible for to begin with.
They are secure in Christ. While their worldly experience might be unpleasant now and pleasant later, ebb and flow, still they will never lose what they’ve been given because they will never be taken from where they are.
