John 6:56 - He that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, dwells in Me, and I
in him.

Mutual Indwelling - Part 1: Oneness With God

Fundamental to our relationship with God and communion with Christ Jesus is
the revelation of the oneness God has granted us with Himself. Jesus said,
"If any one eats My flesh and drinks My blood, then he dwells in Me, and I
in him." (John 6:56). This statement clearly reveals the faith of the New
Covenant and the miracle that comes by faith. The life that comes into the
believer through the miracle of salvation is the life of Christ Jesus, the
life of the Son. Being saved and made a child of God results in a mutual
indwelling (John 17:23, 14:20, 23; 1 John 3:24; 2 Corinthians 13:5).

The Gospel and miracle of faith provides the great exchange of our lives
for His, so we can confidently and boldly say: "For me to live is Christ!"
This miracle of faith brings the ever-abiding presence of Christ Jesus into
our lives with the manifestation of His life and power through us. If we
partake of Christ Jesus, then we will live by Him (John 6:57). As we lay
hold on the reality of this miracle of faith, we will cease to live by our
own ability and begin to more fully live by Him. Doubt and unbelief, which
only hopes Christ Jesus will hear our prayer and come and help us, will no
longer have rule over us. Instead, we will know we are the temple where He
dwells; and out of His own life and glory, we have all God's promises
fulfilled in our lives!

Refuse all vain and deceitful philosophy after the elementary forces of
this world, and instead embrace the boldness and access we have through the
faith of Christ Jesus! (Colossians 2:6-10; Ephesians 3:12)
