Believing Our Union with Christ
1 John 5:11 And this is the testimony, that God gave to us
eternal life and this life is in His Son. (12) He who has the
Son has the life...
1 Cor 1:30 But of Him
you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom to us from God: both righteousness and sanctification and redemption,
Words of Ministry
The secret to victory is realizing that it does not come gradually. By faith we know that Christ has become our victory. Victory is just Christ, and faith substantiates everything that Christ is in us. God's grace has given the Lord Jesus to us. All that we need to do is receive what God has given to us by faith. When this happens, Christ's life, power, freedom, and holiness will be manifested in us. This mysterious union has been accomplished by God. He has made Christ's unsearchable riches ours... Now He is our righteousness, holiness, and redemption, and He is living His life out of us. Do we believe this? God is inviting us, as well as commanding us, to believe that our union with the Lord is the same as His union with God. In such a union all of His patience, meekness, purity, and goodness become ours. Just as we believed that He is our righteousness, we should now believe that He is our holiness. Brothers and sisters, many people have failed in this very matter. They know God's way of victory, but they do not have the faith. They know that they do not have the power, but they do not know the power of Christ. They know the utter corruption of their own flesh, but they do not see that God has given the riches of Christ to them as a gift.
