AN INSEPARABLE ONENESS;
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me” (John 17:21).
This prayer of the Lord Jesus above is fulfilled in us today —the new creation in Christ—we’ve become one with divinity. 1 Corinthians 6:17 tells us that “he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” We’ve been brought into oneness with divinity; it’s an inseparable union. We’re in Him, and He is in us. This is the reason we can enjoy rich fellowship with Him.
The Bible says, “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit” (1 Corinthians 12:13). You’ve been made to drink into one Spirit; you’ve become intermingled with the Spirit of God as one divine creation.
2 Corinthians 13:14 says, “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. …” The Spirit of God has brought us into fellowship—a communion, a drinking together, a union with Him. We’ve come into a place of relationship; a oneness of spirit! And you ought to enjoy that fellowship everyday; it’s not something you go into and come out of, for you’re in Him, and He’s in you.
The Bible says “if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17); we came into Christ by the new birth. So we’re in Christ now. Then also Colossians 1:27 says “…Christ in you, the hope of glory.” So just like Jesus, when He said I am in the Father, and the Father is in me (John 14:11), now you’re in Him, and He is in you. No wonder He says greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)! The consciousness of this truth in your spirit will wipe away all fears, failure and the defeat mentality from your life.
