And The Two Shall Be One

And The Two Shall Be One…

I’m sure Grandfather had a different lesson planned for that day, but I was the one who initiated the lesson. I have a question, I said, How does one live up to the standards of God? How does one attain such high standards?

One doesn’t, he said.

What do you mean?

One doesn’t do it…as you think. How could you?, Grandfather responded.

I don’t understand, I said.

Who could live up to the standards of God?, he said

I responded, the godly?

No, said Grandfather, The only one who can live up to the standards of God… Is God. And the only one who can live the life of Jesus is Jesus. So how do you live up to His standards? How do you live a Godly life?

I didn’t answer.

There’s only one way — you let Him live it. You let God meet the standards of God. You let Jesus live the life of Jesus through you.

So, I said, Its Him not me.

It’s Him through you. It’s Him living His life …through your living your life in Him. In the Book of First Corinthians 3:9 it is written, ‘We are God’s fellow workers. You are Gods field, God’s building.’ But in the original language the words “fellow workers” are just one word – sunergos.

And what does it mean?, I asked.

Argos, replied Grandfather, means to act, to work, or to do. And sun means with or together. So sunergos means to act together, to work with, to move together or to do as one. That’s the key. It’s impossible for you to live the life of God. But it’s impossible for God not to live the life of God. So the key is not to live up to the standards of God, but to let God live out His life through you. It means to let God live in your living… as in His living, you live. It means to let God live in your loving… as, in His loving, you love.

It is through sunergos we get the word synergy. That’s the energy of salvation, the energy of God, and the energy of you flowing together as one…one energy, one motion, one life. As it is written, ‘Be strong…in the power of His might’ …sunergos. (Ephesians 6:10)

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9

Start living today in the synergy of God. Live in His moving, act in His acting and love in His loving…as one.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
