But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).

1Corinthians 1:9 says God has called us into fellowship (oneness) with His Son Jesus Christ. This is bigger than what the natural mind can conceive, and that’s why some Christians don’t understand it. To be called into the fellowship of Jesus Christ means you’ve been brought into His class; you’re in partnership with Him and participate in His interests. In Him you live, and move, and have your being (Acts 17:28).

You’re not an ordinary person; you’re a joint heir with the Monarch of the universe (Romans 8:17). You’re a member of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones (Ephesians 5:30); meaning you can’t go anywhere or do anything without Him. He’s in you and with you always to guarantee your success in life. No wonder He said that if you’re severed from Him, you can do nothing: “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:5).

Peter describes our fraternal union with Him rather beautifully; he calls us “Partakers of the divine nature”; associates of the God-kind (2 Peter 1:4). This means we’re in God’s class, having the same life, nature and character with Him. Now we can think like Him, because we have the same mind with Him (1 Corinthians 2:16). We can express and manifest His glory and His righteousness because we’re the epitome of His righteousness, as we’re the effulgence of His glory.

This is Christianity! That God would bring man into His own class of being! We’re superstars from Zion. We’re superior to Satan, and have dominion over the forces of darkness! Hallelujah!

PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for the oneness and fellowship I enjoy with you through the Holy Spirit that lives in me. Your divine presence in me makes me more than a man. I’m an associate of the God-kind; I live triumphantly above the influences of the world, walking in dominion over Satan and the forces of darkness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
