John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.'
Introduction: True Discipleship
What does union with Jesus mean?
Union with Christ.
There are several definitions of the word union. For the purpose of this teaching it will mean the condition of being united, the act of uniting, or a conjunction formed by such an act. To be in union is to be in oneness.
To be in union with Christ has to mean to be one with Christ.
To be in union with Christ, is to be useful to God, able to speak out a testimony of Spiritual power and wonder in the using of the gifts given to you through your union that the will of God may be done wherever you are.
The reward of true Christians who willingly serve their Lord, no matter the cost, is not only in this life, but also in the next! Colossians 3:24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
May you through these teachings come into a deepening faith in the living Lord Jesus Christ, that your union with Him is rewarded. Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
