Realizing your union with Christ
“Union with Christ is really the central truth of the whole doctrine of salvation not only in its application but also in its once-for-all accomplishment in the finished work of Christ.” —JohnMurray
In Revelation 1:17, when the Apostle John was ushered into Heaven in the vision, he found himself in the presence of the Almighty One, and fell at His feet as though,dead! All great people, when they came in contact with the Holy God, fell on their face—the holiness of God blew them away. They knew that in and of themselves, they were toast because of their sin.
But get this: At the moment in time, when you said, “Jesus, I trust in You for salvation,” God instantly began to see you in a completely different way. Now, when God the Father looks at you, He sees the cross in front of you. It doesn’t matter what you did today, either good or bad. What He sees is Christ and His righteousness in you.
… we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. —Hebrews 10:10
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. —Romans 8:1
Please, believe this, because God means what He says! You have been made holy. You are not condemned.This is the key to experiencing Life in this season of “already, but not yet” and renewal. You will not be condemned by God for anything that you do because all your sins are covered. When He looks at you, He sees Christ!
Do you see yourself that way too?
Jesus, renew my mind. By the counsel of Your Spirit in me, conform my thoughts to the truth of who I am in You because of the cross. I deeply desire to live as a restored, renewed child of Yours in unity. Give me the willingness and ability to believe! Amen.
