#6 Progression into Union

About The Road to Union Series
The new creation exists in union with Jesus and the Father—a fact. Yet the road to union isn't based on attainment, but revelation and realization.
There are two parts to entering union. The first one is progression into union, led by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is committed to bringing the believer into the true realization of his/her actual union with Christ. All His movements are toward that end.
The means of that progress is the cross. To experience Life, it isn’t how much you possess of Christ but how much you have lost of Adam. And Adam is discarded in the nitty gritty cross of everyday life. “Take up your cross daily…”
Now those who won’t ‘take up’ the cross (that crosses out our own agenda), will not see or experience union. The way to union is a small step of death-to-self every day, and (as you will) a big leap of surrender to God’s WILL.
As you die daily, you are growing toward the union in Christ that is yours.
