Union With Christ

The uniqueness of the Christian faith and experience is the product and result of our Union with Christ. Christ in us and us in Christ..
Ten times Paul uses the Greek preposition sun translated “Together” to describe our (this) relationship between the Believer and Christ Jesus.
Believers were crucified (Gal 2:20) dead (Col 2:20) buried (Rom 6:4) quickened or Made Alive (Eph 2:1-5 & Col 2:13) raised ( Col 3:1; Eph 2:6) seated (Eph 2:6) and Glorified (Rom 8:17) TOGETHER WITH CHRIST………

In John 15 Jesus used the example of the vine and the branches to describe this relationship…

John 15 King James Version (KJV)

15 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

On the basis of this Holy Union The Apostle Paul shows us how the victorious Christian life can be opened up to us… He uses four key words in Romans 6….. 1)Know v6 2) reckon v11 3) yield v13 and 4) obey v17….. The Christian… any Christian… Every Christian CAN conquer sin Because CHRIST lives in them!!
