For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. (Acts 17:28 KJV)

“Have our own being,” what does that mean exactly?

Simply, the Greek word for the phrase “have our own being” is esmen, which means we are and comes from the root word, eimi which means to be, to exist and to be present

In Him, we have our own being.
In Him, we are.
In Him, we be.
In Him we exist.
In Him, we are present.

“Offspring” in focus verse  is the Greek word genos meaning kin, kind; kindred; family; stock; tribe.

In Him, we are also his offspring.
In Him, we are His kin.
In Him, we are His kind.
In Him, we are His kindred.
In Him, we are His family.
In Him, we are His stock.
In Him, we are His tribe.

Genos comes from a Greek root word, ginomai meaning:  be; become; come into existence; appear in history; are finished, are complete

In Him, we become.
In Him, we come into existence.
In Him, we begin to be.
In Him, we receive being. 
In Him, we appear in history.
In Him, we come upon the stage.
In Him, we are made.
In Him, we are finished.
In Him, we are completed.

I enCOURAGE you to love, live, move, and be in Him.   You are His kind and He alone completes you.
