We’re One With Christ by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

We're One With Christ by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

And as he journeyed, he came near
Damascus: and suddenly there shined
round about him a light from heaven:
And he fell to the earth, and heard a
voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why
persecutest thou me?And he said, Who
art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am
Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard
for thee to kick against the pricks (Acts
9:3-5).

The scripture passage above is a clear
reference to the inextricable oneness of
Christ and the Church. Before his conversion,
Saul wreaked havoc in the early Church and persecuted
Christians everywhere, until he had an encounter with
the Lord, who intercepted him and asked, “…Saul, Saul,
why persecutest thou me?”

Jesus intimately identifies Himself with the
Church. Read again, His words to the injurious Saul of
Tarsus in our opening Scripture. The Master didn’t say,
“Saul, why persecutest thou my followers?” Rather, He
took it personal, because we’re of the same stock with
Him. An attack on the Church is an attack on Jesus,
because He’s the Vine, and we (the Church) are the
branches. We have His very life; He brought us into
union with Himself.

Always remember that anything you do for, or
against the Church is unto Christ. Persecuting the Church is persecuting Jesus, because He’s the head
of the Church: “And he is the head of the body, the
church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the
dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence”
(Colossians 1:18). The head and the body go by the
same Name—Christ! Thus, we’re members of the body
of Christ.

Being born again, you’ve been baptized into the
body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:27 says, “Now ye are
the body of Christ, and members in particular.” As a
member of the body of Christ, you don’t answer a name
that’s different from that of the head or of the body,
which is Christ. This is to help you see who you are,
where you are, and what you have; you’re one with
Christ.

When He was raised from the dead, you were
raised up together with Him. Now that He’s seated
on the throne, you’re seated together with Him in the
place of dominion, glory and authority. Therefore, rule
the world and dominate your environment with the
glory of Christ!

CONFESSION
I’m seated together with Christ in the place of
dominion, glory and authority, reigning and ruling
over circumstances and situations, dominating my
world by the power of the Holy Ghost! Glory to God
forever!
