Union with Christ quotes

I am getting excited to speak at Cru tomorrow about a much neglected aspect of the Christian’s salvation: our union with Christ. Here are a couple great quotes I’ve come across in my preparation:

“Faith unites the soul with Christ as a bride is united with her bridegroom.” -Luther

“First, we must understand that as long as Christ remains outside of us, and we are separated from him, all that he has suffered and done for the salvation of the human race remains useless and of no value for us. Therefore, to share with us what he has received from the Father he had to become ours and to dwell within us.” -Calvin

“When a person trusts in Christ, to him or her is granted the entire inheritance that Christ won for us in history.” -Michael Horton
