READ #LA65 – Fusion With The Spirit Of God (Eph 1-4) by @khemmzie

Reading: Ephesians 1-4

Topic: Fusion With The Spirit Of God.

Text: ‘Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an
inheritance from God, for He chose us in advance, and He makes everything work out
according to his plan’ Ephesians 1:11 (NLT)

From the beginning of time, the plans of God for mankind have been revealed to us in
His word – for mankind to be united with him forever. And by mankind, He means mankind being united and then coming to unite with him. The escalating lack of unity amongst Christians is very alarming. God’s desire and plan to make more than one man was for “men” to bond, live in love that their lives may please Him (God). That “men” would work together to populate the earth. That they would work together to spread the good news of salvation. That “together” they would be his house (Eph2:20). That together, men would equip God’s people using their individual gifts as different parts of a body working together (Eph4:16).

These plans God made for man is making very slow progress because of disunity amongst
Christians. For us to receive our inheritance from God, we need to be united and
work together to glorify God. There is enough inheritance of God to go round. Let’s
stop acting like rivals and work as one. Forget church denominations and doctrines,
remembering only one thing, we have been united by “Christ”. One Christ, whom we are to
live like.

Prayer Focus:
Dear Lord, thank You for the gift of Your son Jesus Christ. Thank You for Your love
and desire to want me to dwell with You forever. Please help me to live and work in
peace and be united with all around me to glorify You. Amen.
