Born Again Believers...

 

As born again believers, through our union with Christ, we are to live and operate in another sphere, which is the world of the spirit seeing that our heavenly Father has made that provision....
The apostle Paul makes the following afirmations in his letters:

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places (woŕld of the spirit) in Christ Jesus (through our union with Him )" Eph1:3

"And raised us up together and made us sit together in the heavenly places (world of the spirit)in Christ Jesus (through our union with Him) " Eph 2:6

"If then you were raised with Christ (through our union with Him) seek those things that are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God." Col 3:1

As God's children, we must remember that our union with Christ is in our spirit...."But he (our spirit) who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." 1Cor 6:17

"In whom you are also being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit."Eph 2:22

Now how exactly do we live in heavenly places? We simply line up our way of thinking and functioning with the reality of our new birth as well as our new spiritual position in Christ, or our union with Him....
In Romans we read the following :

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (in union with Him)who DO NOT WALK (daily live) according to the flesh,(it's dictates) but according to the Spirit." Rom8:1

"For those who live according to the flesh set THEIR MIND on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things os the Spirit ."Rom 8:5

Blessings in Christ our all in all to you all....
