“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Ephesians 5:31-32 NKJV
A man becomes part of the church when He receives Christ as Lord and Savior, not when he signs up a membership card. Identifying with His death and resurrection brings about the new birth. You now participate in the mystery where you are part of the bride of Christ. The church is married to Christ in a covenant relationship.
We were all undeserving of this great honor. Jesus elevated us from a place of shame to the place of glory. If Jesus is King then the church is the Queen. We share in the glory of the King's throne, power and splendor. His Majesty has made us majestic. We are no longer beggars, sinners or aliens in His presence; we are now part of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
Our inseparable union with Christ gives us privileges and liberties which were hitherto denied. We can no longer go out of favor with Jesus, He can not hate His own body. We are now called by His name just as the wife, in Jewish culture, would lose her name and be called by the name of her husband. In His bloodline, Jesus has no inherited diseases, curses and misfortunes of any kind, and now we are all partakers.
We are one spirit with Jesus. His life is now the life pulsating in you. His health is now your health. His blessings are yours. His eternal bliss and immortality is all yours for the taking. Everything Jesus owns, you are a joint heir. What a life!
I am now joined with Christ in inseparable union. I share in His life, His divine health and His blessings.
