The Christian humanity does not refer to our natural virtues; rather, it is the Christ who lives in us and out of us. According to Philippians, we are people in Christ. From the day we were saved, we have been transferred from Adam into Christ….On the one hand, it is Christ growing in us [Matthew 13]. Our hearts are like the soil; they are for growing Christ. On the other hand, it is of God that we are in Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:30). It is God who has translated us from Adam into Christ. Today our position is in Christ. However, we have to attain to a condition in which we are found in Christ [Philippians 3:9]. Moreover, whether by life or death, Christ should be magnified in our body as always [1:20]. This is the Christian humanity.
Today, we should be those who are willing to remain in Christ and be found in Him. In this way, we can do all things in Him who empowers us (Philippians 4:13). Every one of the six virtues—that which is true, dignified, righteous, pure, lovely, and well spoken of (v. 8)—is hard to achieve from man’s point of view. But we can do all these in Him who empowers us. In this way, we live out godliness and the proper humanity, which is just Christ manifested in our bodies and lived out through us.
