Many Christians talk about what they are trying to be, what they need to be, and what they are going to be, but this book is about who you are NOW and what you have NOW as a believer. You are righteous NOW in Christ. You have a 'First Class' righteousness in Christ. There is no 'Economy Class' righteousness.
Everything Jesus did He did for you, and it is set to the credit of your account. In Taking Your Place In Christ, Mark Hankins explains what happened in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ and who the believer is 'In Christ.' When you were born again, you did not go from being a lost worm to being a saved worm. You are a new creation in Christ; you are not just a forgiven sinner. You don't have to wait until you get to heaven to enjoy the benefits of the new birth. You will see who you are Now in Christ and what you have Now as a child of God.
