A Practical Devotional Guide to What It Means to Be “In Christ”

Followers of Jesus refer to themselves primarily as “Christians,” but the New Testament frequently used a more meaningful term: “in Christ.” Disconnected from this deeper understanding of the gospel, believers today can miss out on the significance of unity with the Lord and its power to enrich every area of their lives. 

In One with My Lord, Sam Allberry examines the doctrine of union with Christ through a rich study of New Testament scriptures. Each chapter is short enough to be read as a devotional, giving believers a fresh lens to view the gospel daily as they pursue holiness, resist sin, build community, and worship God. In a time when people are searching for a place to belong, One with My Lord reminds believers that they have a perfect home in Christ.

  • Accessible: Rich exposition of New Testament scriptures through short, devotional chapters
  • Practical Application: Help readers view every area of their lives and faith through the lens of being “in Christ”
  • From Sam Allberry: Author of What God Has to Say about Our Bodies and coauthor with Ray Ortlund of You’re Not Crazy

“Like a glass of water when you have a headache and don’t realize it’s from dehydration, One with My Lord is the book you didn’t know you needed. In his distinctively inviting style, Sam Allberry helps us drink in one of the most vital and consistently taught truths of Scripture: that we are ‘in Christ’ and that this changes everything. I highly recommend that you read this book and take time to process what it means.”
Rebecca McLaughlin, author, Confronting Jesus: 9 Encounters with the Hero of the Gospels

“For too long the glory of the Christian’s union with Christ has been overlooked, understated, and misunderstood. In this book, Sam Allberry has done a wonderful job of drawing our attention to the mystery and the majesty of this union. One with My Lord is a delight to read, an encouragement to our faith, and a witness to God’s welcome of his children in Christ.”
Kyle Worley, Pastor, Mosaic Church, Richardson, Texas; Cohost, Knowing Faith Podcast

“Being ‘in Christ,’ Sam Allberry says, is ‘the Bible’s primary way of talking about what it means to be a follower of Jesus.’ Allberry helps us see the wonder of salvation and the Christian life through the lens of union with Christ. In his delightfully clear and accessible style, he takes us through various aspects of what it means to be a man or woman ‘in Christ.’ This warmly pastoral work is grounded in careful reading of the Scriptures and serious theological reflection. Allberry shows us that union with Christ is richer, broader, and deeper than we might have imagined, with very practical implications for everyday life. Read this book and be encouraged.”
Mark D. Thompson, Principal, Moore Theological College

“Sam Allberry’s writing is always refreshing and rooted in real experience, but this book really stands out. Allberry leads us gently through many different scriptures, not only to help us understand even the trickier passages but also to show how it all fits together. He clears up our misunderstandings, relates to our confusions and failures, and still makes it all about Jesus! One with My Lord is a vital and deeply pastoral book that helps us make more sense of both the Bible and our messy lives.”
