TOPIC: THE MYSTERY OF COMMUNION
TEXT: John 15:4(NIV)
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
When we got born again, we were united and baptized into Him.
We got baptized into the universal body of Christ!
Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
All these took place spiritually but they have no effect until we lay hold of them by revelation and walk therein.
This mindset of death to the old life should produce total dependency on His life which flows by his Spirit.Without the Holy Ghost, a true believer should be as physically dead. Until this is your experience,you have not experienced his death and the fullness of his life is not in view.If you have this baptismal experience, then communion of the Spirit will be like oxygen of life to you! This is when the real fruitfulness in the order of grace begins.
You need to ask the Holy Spirit to lead you into this experience as you seek him in prayer so that you can enjoy communion and see the sweetness of the new life!
In this season of real barrenness on the earth, only those whose
roots are really connected to the deep fountain of communion will break forth.God is inviting you to the deep water today!
Thank you father because of your word today, I receive the illumination of the Spirit as he leads me into deep communion in the name of Jesus!
