DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT: Fellowship with Him.

I want the whole Christ for my Saviour, the whole Bible for my book, the whole Church for my fellowship, and the whole world for my mission field. -- John Wesley.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I John 1:6-7 If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

To “walk in the darkness” means to live as the world lives, doing those things that are against God’s Word… in other words, live in sin. Such people do not “have fellowship with him,” i.e., they are not born of God (2 Cor 6:14). Those who have fellowship with God experience His daily grace and live lives of holiness in His daily presence (v7). What an absolute blessing, Praise the Lord!

To “walk in the light” means to believe God’s truth as revealed in His Word and to make an honest and continual effort by His grace, to follow in word and accomplishment. The “blood of Jesus, his son, purifies us from all sin” refers to the ongoing work of sanctification within the believer and the continual purification for our unintentional sins. This constant purifying allows us to have intimate fellowship with God… praise His wonderful name, what a God we serve!

Loving Father, thank you for your daily grace and presence in our lives, through the precious blood of Jesus our Lord and Saviour, enabling us to have wonderful, abundant fellowship with you. In Jesus lovely name. Amen.
