I am in Christ; he is the Head of the body. There is an intimate organic relationship. So John Ryland puts the logical question, ‘While Christ is rich’ – he is the Lord of glory, the Lord of everything – ‘While Christ is rich, can I be poor?’ Beloved Christian people, there is something wrong somewhere, is there not? We are in him, we belong to him, he is our Head, we are his people and he is so rich – “The unsearchable riches of Christ” – so how can we be poor?
