Baptized Into Jesus Christ
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore, we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life
In our theme verse, the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul helps us understand our inseparable oneness with the Lord by saying ‘we were baptized into Jesus Christ.’ We’re members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones (Ephesians 5:30).
Being baptized into Jesus Christ, you’ve become inextricably united with Him, such that God doesn’t distinguish you from Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus reiterated this oneness in John 15:5: “I am the vine, ye are the branches….” We have the same life with Him, because life comes through the vine, into the branches.
Another beautiful part of our oneness with Jesus Christ is that it didn’t end with our baptism into His death, but continues in a newness of life by His resurrection from the dead. Romans 6:4 says, “Therefore, we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” His resurrection ushered us into a newness of life.
Walk in the consciousness of your new life in Him; it’s the resurrection life. Your past doesn’t exist; you’re a new creation; a superior creation, perfected in Christ Jesus.You’re not of this world. Have and live with this consciousness every day.
thank you for the inextricable oneness I have with you; your life in me makes me supernatural, impregnable to sickness, diseases or infirmity. I live in victory and in the dominion of the Spirit today,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
