in Him through faith.

""There is now no condemnation for those who are IN Christ." (Rom 8:1). To be "in Christ" means to be in relationship to Him through faith. Faith in Christ unites us to Christ, so that His death becomes our death and His perfection becomes our perfection. Christ becomes our punishment (which we don't have to bear) and our perfection (which we cannot perform)."

Good quote. I don't fancy much of John Piper's teachings, but every now and then he surprises me.

A while ago somebody bought me his book entitled "50 reasons why Jesus came to die" very good!
