ONENESS

BY: RAY PRINZING

 

 

“That They may be one, even as We are one.” (John 17:22)

 

 

O quality of oneness to which we would attain,

The whole of life encompassed within the Spirit’s rein.

To know pure freedom’s glory from all divided ways,

A singleness of purpose to mark transition days.

Till cycles within cycles all blend their golden hue,

With each degree portraying the same inherent view,

To magnify the Savior, our Centre, Source and Goal,

Supreme in every measure – the life of every soul.

No more the dual nature, which shackles every clod,

With flesh in mortal conflict against the will of God.

Nor yet the tangled feelings confused by babbled sounds,

But inward peace pursuing, till clarity abounds.

O glorious state of being where all blends into One,

The twain in Christ united, blest image of the Son.

To find the truest balance in His identity,

Where God is ONE forever in full reality.

 

 

Oneness speaks of singleness, unity, and the end of confusion, duplicity. “When thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light. (Luke 11:34) “He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit. (I Cor. 6:17) No more that duality of trying to mix the ‘spirit of the world’ with being led by His Spirit. No more the confusion of desires, to satisfy the lusts of the flesh, and still live a life of holiness pleasing to the Lord. But we say with the Psalmist, “ONE THING have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life” (Psalm 27:4)

 

 

When all of our desires, longings, and needs are met in the central supremacy of Christ, we shall know full peace and completeness. In Him there is balance, and “By Him all things consist (are held together). (Col. 1:17) “The fullness of Him that filleth all in all. (Eph. 1:23)
