A Vital Union!
“Jesus saith unto her…go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God” (John 20:17).
Living a victorious and successful life
in Christ depends on your understanding of your vital union with the Lord. Many Christians are either misinformed or completely ignorant of the kind
of relationship we have with the Lord today in the New Testament; it’s a vital union; an inseparable oneness. We’re much more than
followers, servants, friends or ambassadors of Christ; we’re His body! We’re members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones (Ephesians
In John 15:5, Jesus reiterated our
oneness with Him when He said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches…” This implies that you
have the same life with Jesus, because life comes through the vine into the branches. It’s for this same reason that the Word declares:
“know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ? (1 Corinthians 6:15) and
“ye are the body of Christ and members in particular” (1 Corinthians 12:27).
The death and resurrection of Jesus paved way
for a new relationship with the Father. When you received salvation you were automatically brought into this vital union, making you a participator in
the divine experience. Through this vital union you’re awakened to the fatherhood of God, making you an associate of the God-kind.
If you’re born again, you’re more
than a servant and more than a friend of God. You’re the very offspring of Divinity. Stand tall today in Christ, for He loves to be identified
with you and has brought you into oneness with Himself. He’s in you, and you’re in Him; what a glorious union!
PrayerDear heavenly Father I thank
you for making me a partaker of the divine nature! I rejoice and praise you for this inseparable oneness I share with you, and for the eternal life
that flows in me as a result of this vital union. I’m making great progress and excelling in life today and your glory is revealed in me, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
1 Cor. 12:13
