But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.
1 Corinthians 6:17
Making a decision to follow Christ grafts you into the Tree of Israel and joins you to God through his Holy Spirit. But being joined to God doesn’t mean you can’t veer off track. Those times when you feel as though you’re fighting against the current may simply be evidence that you’ve veered off of the path God has laid out for you.
