One With Christ

As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly.
- 1 Corinthians 15:48 -

The head and members are of one nature.
Since the members were mortal, therefore the Lord Jesus died.
Since the glorified head is immortal, therefore the body is immortal too.
As is our loving Head, so is our body, and every member in particular.
A double union of nature is for the closest communion.
Let us not forget the infinite condescension of the Son of God in exalting our wretchedness into blessed union with His glory.
It is in Christ that we can say to God, "Abba, Father".
Let us occupy our thoughts with this glorious and heavenly honor of union with Christ.
We are special people.
We are one with Christ.
