Life Union with Jesus
Ephesians 6:10 TPT
Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.
There are some days in our life when we feel tired, drained out and feel that we are at the end of our strength. In these times it’s very necessary that we go to God and depend on His strength, wisdom and grace that He wants to fills us with.
Paul is encouraging the church at Ephesus on how to depend on God and receive strength from Him and fight the battles of life.
Paul is talking about two different aspects here:
To be supernaturally infused with strength, abilities & wisdom and he says this will come because of your life-union with Jesus.
In the new testament, how we follow the Lord is completely different than how the people in the old testament followed because now we are made one with Jesus, but in the old testament people saw God through a distance and desired to be like Him but yet they din’t had the access to be one with Him.
Since now we are one with Jesus and if a child of God understands this truth, and taps into His strength that is available through His Spirit, it’s impossible for one to get tired.
Why is it that we still reach a point where we get exhausted?
Yes, a chid of God can feel tired and this happens only when we are not growing in our oneness with the Lord.
Everyday there is something that we need to let go off and sacrifice so that more of Jesus can manifest through us. The more we make this our lifestyle, the more we can be one with Him and receive strength from Him.
Jesus said that He is the vine and we are the branches, and without Him we cannot bear fruit and grow.
Paul goes on to say to stand victorious because there is an explosive power that is in you and is flowing through you.
As a child of God who is filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit, it is impossible to believe that we do not have answers and the grace and strength to overcome life’s struggles.
It is the Lord’s promise that we need to stand victorious with the force of His explosive power.
Sometimes it seems a responsibility and a command from God but in fact it is the most easiest thing to do, that we just need to remain connected with His power by being one with His Spirit.
