“For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection” – Romans 6:5
LIGHT FOR NOW: Christianity is a relationship between a Father and His family.
One of the most beautiful and profound truth about you as a child of God is the fact that you’re God’s habitation of blessings; 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you”. Christianity is a relationship between the Father and His family; it is not just having your sins forgiven or joining a church. It is being made a new man in Christ and then brought to God’s level to be able to fellowship with Him. Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit”. Implying that we’re partners, comrades and associates of the God-Kind; and this is Christianity – God bringing man into union with Himself; bringing us into His class of being! No wonder Psalms 82:6 says, “….Ye are God’s; and all of you are children of the Most High”.
Born again means being born from above; it means receiving God’s nature and life; it means being united with Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called into the fellowship of his son Jesus Christ our Lord”. Through Prophet Ezekiel, God spoke His heart’s dream when He said, “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the strong heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them” (Ezekiel 36: 26-27). So God’s intention was for man to have a new heart – a recreated heart. When God spoke of the heart, He was invariably referring to the Spirit, the real man. And this became a reality at Jesus’ resurrection; on the day of Pentecost, when the Spirit recreated one hundred and twenty in the upper room, God began the “New thing” spoken of by the prophets of old (Acts 1:13-15).
