DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT: FELLOWSHIP WITH US

There isn’t much better in this life than finding a way to spend a few hours in conversation with people you respect and love. You have to carve this time out of your life because you aren’t really living without it. Real Live Preacher.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I John 1:1-3 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched-- this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.

One definition of Fellowship is; “a group of people who share common interests, goals, ~experiences, or views.” John had this in mind when he wrote these verses; he wanted all of us to know that as Christians we have a common faith (Titus 1:4), a common grace of God in Christ Jesus (1 Cor 1:9), a common indwelling of the Spirit (Rom 8:9-11), common gifts of the Spirit (Rom 15:27), and a common enemy (1Pet 5:8).

It never ceases to amaze me that the Lord Jesus came as a common MAN, who spoke the common LANGUAGE to common PEOPLE, that they may understand the common MESSAGE… He was cruelly crucified on the cross that we might be saved! He rose again that we might have a new life!

All of this that we may have fellowship with the almighty God! We who have received Him are truly blessed!

Loving Father, I truly thank you thank you that I have fellowship with you and the Lord Jesus and His followers, through the power of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ wonderful name! Amen.
