Your real being is to be a son/daughter of God. You are less than yourself and in a false sense of being in anything less than Jesus. Find yourself in His person. Not in Christianity or some substitute for His real presence and agency in you and with you. We become less than we are when we deny our humanity by accepting a kind of normal that kills a part of our being. The more we do this the more we walk around with dead bits as part of our life. Think of a person with areas of dead flesh on their body. Maybe think of a zombie. Think of Paul's question 'Who shall deliver us from this body of death?' The answer is Christ as our life. Life is not found in knowing more. It's found in being daughters and sons. Not notionally but in spirit and truth. When Christ is our life we are one with Him and one with Father. He told us this when He said, 'Those who eat me will live because of Me.' They will be their real selves having entered the life of sonship. He said, 'This is real food.'
Wholesome and nutritious. Not religious junk food without substance or agency.
Some live haggard, mechanical lives. Others live religious lives. They claim the anointing yet exist just outside life in the Spirit. They are still attached to the law. Any attachment to the law denies our life in the Spirit and shrivels our being. Living in a mode abandoned by God has drastic effects on our Kingdom life. It shrivels our being. This is our lot when we remain in the old covenant.
Separation from God separated Adam from life. As whole as we may imagine ourselves to be in law or religion - in the spirit we are never more than a carcass in comparison to our status when Christ is our life.
We are joined to the body of death when we live from the law, are joined to the law or attempt a life in anything that is not Jesus Himself. This is because we have remained in separated atrophied Adam and have not actually stepped into Christ. In the Spirit, you are one flesh with Jesus. He is your life in spirit and in truth.
