I cannot think of a greater climax to this blog series than perfect unity between the Spirit and Christ’s Bride, the church. From the creation when “the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters” (Genesis 1:2), to the Father sending the Spirit on the day of Pentecost to fill believers and baptize them into one body, the church (Acts 2:1-4; 1 Corinthians 12:13), it has all been toward this ultimate moment. This is the moment I am living for! This will be the culmination of all God’s purpose and plans throughout all the ages.
If you merely look at the years and issues of conflict and division that have ripped apart the church, misrepresented Christ in a million ways, grieved and quenched the Spirit, you will miss seeing where the Spirit is at work preparing the church for this grand finale. Let Him enlighten your eyes and fill your mind and heart with His truth. Listen to the Spirit and let Him separate you from everything unworthy of Him so that He can create this beautiful unity between you and Himself. Then you and I will be ready to cry together, “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20).
