“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit” (1Corinthians 6:17)
Being born again is more than merely becoming a follower or a disciple of Jesus Christ. It is coming into union with Christ: that’s the big thing about our salvation—our oneness with the Lord. When you were born again, not only was your spirit recreated, you were also immersed into Christ; you became one with the Lord! You were literally joined together with Him as one indivisible entity!
The Bible says, “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:13). You’ve been made to drink into one Spirit; you’ve become inter-mingled with the Spirit of God as one divine creation.
You’re not one who’s struggling to attain to God’s level—you’re already one with Him. This is the reason everything you get involved with ought to succeed. Sickness, disease and infirmity shouldn’t have place in your body, and satan shouldn’t be a factor to you anymore, for you were born with the superior life of God in your spirit. Everywhere you go, you ought to manifest the glory and perfections of God, for you’re one with Him. In Him you live, and move and have your being.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for recreating me in Christ Jesus and making me one with your Spirit. By your Spirit, I’ve been immersed into Christ; I live in you, and you live in me, thus making us one divine creation. Consequently, I exhibit your character, qualities, grace and excellence, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
