Union With

This has been the topic of conversation several times this week… A personal relationship with God. Is it a coincidence? I think not. We have approached a time in this world where our very souls are thirsty for the Living Vine. Our Spirits are looking to return to their truest destiny (Ephesians), and our minds, our minds are seeking for the simplest clarity.

We see the world and how much Love is missing. We recognize its need for a better way, a better solution, peace… but what about us? Do we recognize that same need within? AND do we believe we will ever achieve it? Being raised under very strict beliefs of fear, I didn’t develop my understanding of the Loving God until a few years ago. I was so afraid of this Being that I ran away rather then toward… that distance caused me much grief and aloofness. Through much studying (of what may be considered “off-color”) literature I realized Who & What we are in union with the living God. Yes I said in UNION WITH.

I said this before and I feel it need re-mention; “When we realize we’re related to God…” all else becomes, all else. Let that roam through your mind today, it might may cause you to see things differently.

I love the love within us. It’s Wednesday, so talk to God because He really does care…about YOU! Hump Day….. GO!!!! MUAH

    Megan I look forward to reading your posts yourkindess and love for others is very inspiring.


    There is a mystical union of God and the believer, which is taught in the Scriptures and experienced by the Christian, but which is difficult to describe. Chronologically its beginning coincides with regeneration and justification; logically it follows upon them, and forms the next stage in the order of salvation. It is not to be interpreted simply as an activity of God in us, but possesses the nature of a personal fellowship (1 John 1:3). God lives in the believer, and the believer in God. It is the starting point and living source of that progressive sanctification which begins in the justified man and continues to the end of his earthly life.

  2. Hi Megan,

    A spiritual leader that I followed for many years (until she "gave up" on religion and began doing more open-ended teaching), used to take the word "atonement" apart so that we could really understand it. AT ONE MENT! Your post totally captures this idea. Thanks as always for sharing!!
