The Greater Truth Of Our Relationship With The Lord

The Greater Truth Of Our

Relationship With The Lord

 

“Jesus saith unto her…go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God”

(John 20:17).

 

One day, while talking to His disciples, Jesus said to them, “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you” (John 15:14-15). I can imagine they felt elated to have Him call them friends; they had moved a step higher from being mere servants or followers to becoming friends with the Lord.

 

Living a victorious and successful life in Christ depends on your understanding of the essence of your relationship with the Lord. Sadly, many Christians are either misinformed or completely ignorant of the kind of relationship we have with the Lord today in the New Testament. We’re much more than followers, servants, friends, or ambassadors of Christ, for these are lesser truths. The greater truth of our relationship with the Lord is our oneness with Him—we’re His body! We’re members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones (Ephesians 5:30).

 

 

In John 15:5, Jesus reiterated our oneness with Him when He said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches…” This is a greater truth about your relationship with Him. It implies that you have the same life with Jesus, because life comes through the vine into the branches. This is the reason the Word declares: “know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ?(1 Corinthians 6:15) and“ye are the body of Christ and members in particular”(1 Corinthians 12:27).

 

His death and resurrection paved way for a new relationship with the Father. Thus everyone that receives salvation is automatically awakened to the fatherhood of God, having the same kind of life, nature and Spirit of God. How awesome!

 

 

Being a servant or friend of God is wonderful, but if you’re born again, you’re more than a servant and more than a friend. You’re the very offspring of Divinity. You’re now an heir of God, and a joint heir with Christ (Romans 8:17). Stand tall today in Christ, for He loves to be identified with you and has brought you into oneness with Himself. This is the greater truth of your relationship with the Lord; walk in it!

 

Prayer

Dear heavenly Father

I thank you for the oneness I share with divinity and for the eternal life that flows in me as a result of this oneness. Therefore no sickness, diseases or infirmity can stay in my body. I’m living a successful, healthy and victorious life because I’m one with your spirit and failure has no association with me;

glory to God. Amen.
