Being One with Christ
January 22, 2014
Romans 6:5 If we have become one with Christ in His death, we will be one with Him in being raised from the dead to new life.
To become one with Christ we accept Jesus as our personal Savior. Once we have that assurance of Him being our Savior
we become one with Him in a similar manner as we do when we marry. We become one with our spouse just as God proclaimed in Genesis 2:24, "For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh."
As many of you know and realize, the longer you are married, the more you and your spouse seem to become one together. You begin to think alike, you know your spouse's thoughts and feelings, their wants and wishes and even more so, you feel their joy and their sorrow just as if it was yours. This is what God wished for us to be like as man and wife.
But, God also had a plan for mankind to become one with Jesus. In Romans 6:5 as shown above, God ordained it to be that we should also become one with Christ Jesus. We should begin to know Him, to think like him, to know His thoughts and feelings, His wants and wishes and as we grow closer, we begin to feel His joy and His sorrow.
To so many of us, marriage is not what it was intended to be through God as He ordained it to be. We do not take marriage serious simply because we allow our own selfish wishes to become more dominant in our relationship
thereby creating a large chasm or gap in our relationship with each other. Likewise, our oneness with Christ also is corrupted in that we allow our own selfish wishes to become the dominant factor in our relationship with Him, causing a similar chasm or gap between us and Him.
I would ask that you would take some time to devote your thoughts to this message today and see if you have shown yourself approved by God in your relationship with your spouse and with Jesus, your Savior. If you have not, then today is the day for a healing in your relationship with your spouse and Christ. Today is the day to begin that New Walk that
God, the Almighty I AM, who created you and all things good, wishes for you. Become who you are meant to be. Become who God Himself ordained you to be. Become ONE and your life will begin to show signs of the Approval that comes only from on high.
God Bless You and Keep You!
