Out to In

  Deuteronomy 6: 23, "And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers." Moses was speaking how God had brought Israel out of the bondage of Egypt that He might bring them into the promised land of Canaan. Egypt and Canaan are recognized as types of sin verses salvation. They could not go IN until they had come OUT.

  The same is true with us. IN CHRIST are all spiritual blessings (Eph. 1: 3). We cannot be in Christ until we go OUT of the world of sin and darkness and turn our faces toward the Light of the world. We make a grave mistake to think we can be among "the called out" (the church) and continue to live in the land of sinful slavery.
