HE BROUGHT US INTO FELLOWSHIP – Pastor Chris
Wednesday, December 26, 2018
That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ (1 John 1:3).
The big deal about Christmas is the purpose for which the Lord Jesus was born into this world, and the import of that purpose for humanity. In John 10:10, He told us that He came that we might have life, and have it to the full.
However, life from, and through Jesus was so we could be in fellowship with God. 1 Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 John 1:3 says, “…our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” This is what Jesus made possible for us. He brought us into fellowship or oneness with the Father.
Now we can walk with the Father, talk with Him, and reveal Him, because of Jesus. Now we live in God’s presence forever; we’re in Him, and He’s in us; such blessed union as Jesus prayed in John 17:21; now, we’re inextricably one with Him.
This is what makes Christmas worth celebrating; it’s the celebration of our oneness with the Lord. Take advantage of your union with the Lord and enjoy the full benefits of all that belongs to you in Christ.
Precious Father, I’m forever grateful for the joy and honour of being one with you; of being in fellowship with you. Your grace is superabundant upon me, and your wisdom guides me to walk in, and fulfil your destiny for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
