On November 26 2018, I was meditating on Romans 8:1 before I went to bed.
Romans 8:1 — There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
I asked the Lord to show me more of what it meant to be “in Christ” as I wanted a deeper understanding.
I fell asleep and dreamt that I was at my grandmother’s house. I was standing outside with a group of unfamiliar people. We were all having conversation about the Lord, and each time someone spoke the word of God, their whole outward appearance changed. When they were done speaking the Word, they would change back to normal. The same thing would happen when they said what we would call a “simple” prayer such as, “Lord, help me.”
It was as if I was seeing into the spirit realm because nobody else could see this change happening. Whatever clothes the person had on changed into a shirt and pants of the same color (I recall seeing deep maroon and hunter green). It seemed as if they were completely whole when this change happened. When I woke up the word I had in me to describe what was taking place was continuity.
Merriam-Webster’s definition of continuity is, “uninterrupted connection, succession, or union.” I greatly desire an uninterrupted connection with Jesus. This dream confirmed to me that dwelling in His word helps us walk in this union with Him.
John 1:1-3; 14– In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made….. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Jesus is the Word made flesh, so through dwelling in and speaking His Word, we are in Him. Furthermore, 1 Peter 1:23 says, “having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.
I am grateful to be born of His incorruptible seed. I pray that all of God’s children will begin to dwell more in His word that we may be found in Christ!
