TREM Devotional 12 October 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – You Are One With Christ
TOPIC: You Are One With Christ (TREM Devotional 12 October 2021)
“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 KJV
Christ is the head of the body and the church is the body; the head and the body are one. You cannot say God sees Christ the head as perfect and His body- the church as imperfect. You cannot say that Christ is accepted, and His body is rejected; it is not true. The measure of Jesus’ acceptance with God is a measure of your acceptance with God.
Therefore, anything God says about Christ applies to you. It makes no sense to say the head is well and the body is sick. Your head is well and your body is sick. Is that not stupidity? If your head is well, it will affect your body. If your head is blessed, your body will be blessed because they are connected. If your head prospers, your body prospers. If your head is an achiever, you are an achiever. If your head has wisdom, you equally have wisdom
Whatever perfection, joy and peace that Jesus brings to the Father’s heart is the same that is put on your account. As He is a sweet-smelling aroma unto the Father, so are you. Whenever the Father sees you, He smells sweet aroma, not polluted aroma. You are not polluted in the sight of the Father. The same acceptance that He has for Jesus is the same that He has for you. Why are you discounting and separating yourself? When you see yourself with Him, you will see that whatever your needs are, He is releasing. He is releasing wisdom and riches. Whatever you ask, He is releasing to you because you cannot be separated from Christ.
For He is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us (Ephesians 2:14). Do not let the devil tell you: “you are here, and Jesus is there.” No! You are one with Christ! Where He is sitting is where you are sitting.
