1 Corinthians 6:17

“(But) the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.” (NASB)


“(But) the one who joins (kollao: cleave, be joined, keep company, to glue, to glue together, cement, fasten together, fasten firmly together) himself to the Lord is one spirit (pneuma: a movement of air of the wind; the vital principal by which the body is animated; the power by which the human being feels, thinks, decides; possessed of the power of knowing, desiring, deciding, and acting; the disposition or influence which fills and governs the soul of any one) with Him.”


The one who fastens himself firmly together with the Lord is one movement in unison with Him.


Do you understand this? I pray that you do. When you are joined with the Lord, you and the Father have no separation, no division – you are one. So very few seem to grasp this truth and even less daily walk in it. You are not a “Christian”, you are Christ, if you are fastened together with Him. There is no distinction, no “you”. Remember, for you are dead and it is no longer you that is alive but Christ within you. Will you be joined to the Lord today? Will you lay aside everything that hinders in order to be one spirit with Him?
