Fellowship And Unity With Christ
I was recently listening to a Jesus Culture song called “God of miracles.” The lyrics start “The One who made the blind to see, is moving here in front of me.” However, the words that kept going through my head after listening to it were “I’m one with Him who made the blind to see…” The Holy Spirit was highlighting this truth to me, and I felt power flowing through me as I thought about this truth.
1 Corinthians 6:17 (NIV) But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
The Corinthians had a lot of issues with immorality in the church. Yet notice how Paul emphasized that they were “sanctified in Christ Jesus.” If you ever get a chance, look up the word “in Christ” and read every instance of this phrase in the Bible. God has called us to walk in Christ and to experience unity with God through fellowship with Christ. It’s only the free gift of righteousness that enables us to walk in fellowship with Christ and thus bear the fruit of righteousness.
1 Cor. 1:2 (NRSV) To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:
1 Cor. 1:9 (NIV) God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord
One With Christ The Healer
As the thought continued to run through my mind “I’m one with Him who made the blind to see…” I met a guy with a brace on his back. I thought he must have a hernia, but he said it was back pain. Since I am in fellowship with Christ I love what He loves. Since I’m one with Him I do what he does. I laid my hands on the guy and spoke life. I only felt slight current of power flowing physically, but in my heart I knew what was happeing. The beauty of Jesus and his compassion overwhelmed my soul. Thank you God for making me one with Christ the healer!
Within a short time, all the pain was gone!
