Only when we are united in Christ can we experience perfect unity. Believers cannot be united in any other way other than in spirit and in truth. Every other kind of unity between believers whether they are blood related or not, will fade and wane away. Any type of earthly (fleshly) unity is a temporary bond, not worth a believers time. specially when our time belongs to God, now that we are His.
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
Believers are worshippers, what does that mean? Praying without ceasing, Meditating on the word of God day and night, and Rejoicing evermore.
What has spirit and truth got to do with being united in Christ?
Many siblings and families stay united for the sake of their carnal ties. Unless it isn’t built on the rock that is Christ, it’s vanity. Every form of unity that does not seek the glory of God will break and rot. Unity that covers sins and lies will be exposed.
Familiarity breeds corruption on earth. The familiarity true believers build up is incorruptible and everlasting.
When our spirit is under the subjection and leading of the Holy Spirit we join with those who God wants us to join in spirit and in truth. Truth refers to the doctrine and teachings that help us grow together. In the Fathers house there are many mansions. There are three different habitations into which God is preparing His people, according to His perfect will.
As believers, we enter into a new family union in Christ. A heavenly family, become one as the bride preparing herself to meet Jesus in His soon appearing. The day is near, get ready. Maranatha, Praise God and Amen.
