ONE SPIRIT WITH HIM

ONE SPIRIT WITH HIM

Monday, January 10th.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones (Ephesians 5:30).

In John 15:5, Jesus said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches….” That’s a description of oneness;
the same message communicated in our theme verse.
The word “members” in our theme verse is the Greek “melos” and it means limbs, like you have your hands and your legs; we’re the limbs of His body!

1 Corinthians 6:15 breaks it down even further. It says, “Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ?…” This is referring to the Church; it means your very legs are Jesus’ legs! Your hands are His hands; your body is the physical extension of Christ in the world. An understanding of this will give you a new mindset about who you really are. You couldn’t be one with Him and be sickly. You couldn’t be one with Him and have failed organs. His life in you perfects you through and through.

The same message is detailed in 1 Corinthians 12:27: ”Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” That means you’re definite members; describable members. Hallelujah! You occupy a special place, a recognizable place, in the body of Christ. This is extraordinary!

In driving the point home, the Apostle Paul had said in Ephesians 5:28, “So ought men to love their
wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife
loveth himself.”
He’s saying when two people are married, their bodies belong to each other. Then he tells us in 1 Corinthians 6:15 that our bodies are members of Christ, which means your body belongs to Jesus Christ.

Paul describes it as something far stronger than a marital relationship when he says, “But he that is
joined unto the Lord is one spirit”
(1 Corinthians 6:17). This means that Christ has a right over your body and you have a right to His body. But since His body is in heaven, Paul says if you’re joined to the Lord, you’re one spirit because through the spirit, you can make available to your body the glories of His resurrected body. Hallelujah!

Now you can better understand when the Bible says, “…Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). Live every day with the consciousness of your oneness with Jesus Christ.

CONFESSION

I’m a member of His body, of His flesh and of His bones! I walk in the consciousness that I’m in oneness
with Jesus Christ. And through the spirit, I make
available to my body the glories of His resurrected
body. No sickness, disease or infirmity can thrive in
my body, because I’m joined to the Lord and one
spirit with Him. Divinity is at work in me. Glory to
God!

FURTHER STUDY: || John 14:16-17 – And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. ||

|| John 14:20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. ||

|| John 17:20-21Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. ||
