In Him we live, and move, and have our being

For in Him we live, and move, and have our being. Acts 17:28

The natural life which men live is from God; and they are supported in it by him; and from him they have all the comforts and blessings of life; and all motions, whether external or internal, of body or of mind, are of God, and none of them are without the concourse of his providence, and strength assistance from him; though the disorder and irregularity of these motions, whereby they become sinful, are of themselves, or of the devil; and their being, and the maintenance of it, and continuance in it, are all owing to the power and providence of God.

~ John Gill

Now, if God says of unbelievers that they live, move and have their being in Him (not referring to salvation, of course, but to God as the giver and sustainer of natural life) THEN HOW MUCH MORE DO THOSE IN CHRIST live, move and have their being in Him?

May we be highly conscious of the fact that we live, move and have our being in the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
