1 Corinthians 2:9
Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.
In Jesus we have an inheritance that surpasses our understanding. The depths of Christ’s love, presence, nature and life are ours to experience. He has freely given us His Spirit and all the qualities that flow from His life: He has given us His love, joy, peace, healing, wisdom and more. But how do we experience the reality of what we have been given? How do we connect with God and know His power and love in a real and tangible way?
The One with Christ studies have been written to answer some of these questions. The purpose of the studies is to give keys to entering into the reality of our inheritance in God. As such, our focus is on matching a firm understanding of the truth in Scripture with spiritual experience and transformation. So do we want to experience more of God? Are we hungry for change?
One with Christ
The One with Christ studies are a series of Bible studies that can be done individually or in groups. So why call the series ‘One with Christ’?
1 Corinthians 6:17
But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
The term One with Christ comes from this Scripture. When we join ourselves to the Lord, we become one spirit with Him. It is a promise of God that when we connect ourselves deeply and intimately with Him, we will become one spirit with Him. It is certainly one of the mysteries of God, but a promise and a reality nonetheless. We can become one with Christ.
Thus our transformation comes as we experience a greater spiritual connection and unity with Jesus. So if you want to draw closer to God and explore the idea of joining yourself to Jesus, then download the studies for free and have a read. If you want just a taste, then have a read of the first couple of studies online. If the first few studies don’t seem to help, then leave them. Find something else that does help you grow spiritually. If God wants to use the studies, then He will bring you back to them. Simply feel free to go where you sense most life and growth.
The Spiritual Plan
The first few studies of Series One lay a foundation of reality. The following studies look at our inheritance in Christ and how we can go deeper into the life that He has for us. The focus then moves on to faith and experience. Series Two continues on with growing deeper into Jesus and discovering some of the spiritual dimensions to life and the word of God. It then focuses more on actually starting to join ourselves to Jesus and becoming one with Christ.
