Part 4 - The Application of Faith
Overview: Abiding in the Heavenly Dwelling Place of Christ
A second place for the believer to dwell in is the spiritual dimension. To abide in Christ is to live in the "heavenly places" where Christ is. Those in Christ are to seek and set their minds on things above. Christ has brought the believer into the spiritual realm, and He has provided the Holy Spirit by whom the believer can abide in this place. The provision of God to "not fulfill the lust of the flesh" is the abiding in the spiritual dimension. A right relationship with God entails walking in the Spirit where the regenerated spirit of man rules over his soul and body. This is one aspect of abiding in Christ as the Life.
