In His Oneness

Here's a wonderful quote from Graham Cooke on living in His oneness,  a place of intimacy, love and joy:

"The oneness of the Father and the Son is absolutely crucial in our relationship to them.  We step into everything that they are for one another and we live that.  It's a place of absolute joy because joy is the atmosphere of heaven.  It's a place of intentional love.  It is a place of deepest affection.  And you're in that place, and you're in Christ and He's in you, and you stand in the relationship of their oneness.  So they both look at you in the exact way that they both look at each other. 

"When the Father sees you, He doesn't see anything wrong with you.  He's not obsessed by sin... He is consumed by Life and He has dealt with sin once and for all... So when God looks at you He's not dealing with sin, He's dealing with righteousness...

"There's now no condemnation to those who are in Christ.  Why?  Because you're dead.  You're dead.  This is the good news.  Your old nature is dead..Your new nature lives between the nature of the Father toward the nature of the Son.  You've got it made.  And your life is about discovering who you are.  God is not trying to fix you.  He's given you everything that belongs to Jesus. The Holy Spirit's job is to disclose to you everything about Jesus that you need to know and experience so you can have a brilliant life.  He teaches you to stay in this place between the Father and the Son where first love is always going to be your truest experience of life.  Your role is to be the Beloved."
