One of the most difficult things to do in the Christian life is to pinpoint exactly how every believer is to live. It is difficult because it is not God's intention that every believer live the same or be the same in manifestation of the Christ in him. Actually, the very heart of the message of the Christian life is that Christ will flow out of each human being differently, and because there is only one Son, God has elected that all who are created in His likeness and image should be different so that one Son might be manifested unto Him in many various ways. This means that typical religion and doctrine, derived to make all believers look and act alike, are not only error but a tremendous effrontery to the Christ who has been birthed in the believer. It is God's grace that has allowed Christ to come into the believer, regardless of the believers condition of sin and the kind of person he is. It is God's intention that Christ overwhelm all that the believer previously was. By no means, however, is the distinctiveness of that believer taken away because Christ flows out of him. As we so often say it is Christ in us, as us. The salvation that comes by Christ, which God accomplishes for those who believe, includes, among other things, the placing of the saved one in three distinctive positions. First, the believer is placed in the position of a son of God, 1st John 3:2. Second, the believer is placed in the position of a citizen of heaven. Third, we are placed as members of the family of God. Paul is very confident in this matter that believers are distinctive part of the house of God, John 14:2.
