There is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. More radically there is no separation. No separation between you and our Father that is. Since Pentecost you have what Jesus had. You and Father are one. This is the achievement of the cross and your everyday status made real by Holy Spirit. God lives in you.
What does this mean for you? It means what it meant for Jesus. ‘I and the Father are one. I only do what I see my Father doing.’ Jesus was in His Father and in the Spirit. His life and every action was the expression of this reality. So is yours.
You are a true son – a son/daughter in spirit and in truth. If we be still and know God and the union that is ours, all we are and do will be the expression of Jesus, our Father and the Spirit. You don’t have to do anything to earn this. This is our new covenant reality – union with God by the One Spirit.
The gifts of the Spirit - what we call the anointing - are rooted in this already accomplished union with God. It’s not a matter of earning this union. This union is already ours. It is our inheritance as sons of the free woman.
‘His son by the slave woman was born according to the flesh, but his son by the free woman was born as the result of a divine promise’ Gal 4.23 NIV. The sons of the slave woman is absorbed in demonstrating his value to God. The son of the free woman is living in his value to God.
So what is the difference between those who are living in their inheritance and those who do not? It’s a state of mind and a choice. The state of mind is the mind of Christ (I and the Father are one). The choice is simply us agreeing with who Jesus is for us and what He has accomplished for us. By resting in this reality we will be active in producing much fruit – fruit that lasts. This latter fruit is the result of an artery of life that flows from the Trinity, through you into your spirit, your heart, your soul and your body. It flows out of you as spirit and life to advance the Kingdom. It lasts more than a moment. It lasts forever because it is infinite and eternal. It is both the expression of God and the expression of the real you. You will find yourself doing what Father tells you to do and ministering according to your design and in harmony with what gives you delight and pleasure.
‘You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last--and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you’ John 15.16 NIV.
Sons of the free woman have it better than sons of the slave woman in every way. They are authentically themselves and do for the Kingdom in one hour what those who live in separation seldom do in a life time. Without effort they multiply spirit and life – the oxygen of the Kingdom.
