In Fellowship with God

Separation from God means death. Adam was in fellowship with God until the day that he sinned, then he was separated from God and he died. All mankind is separated from God because of sin, but Jesus came to bring us back into fellowship with God, IF we obey Him. Jesus came to take away the sins of the world and He brings those who obey Him into fellowship with God.

We read in 1 John 5:20 “and we know that the Son of God has come and given us understanding, so that we may know Him, who is true, and we are in Him who is true, and in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” Most people do not understand this verse but Jesus came to give us understanding, understanding of the kingdom of God, and He brings us into fellowship with God if we obey Him; if we repent of sin, turn away from sin, because sin separates us from God. We also have to turn away from our earthly pleasures and desires, because anything that we love more than Jesus and more than God, separate us from Him. If we are separated from God, we are doomed and we will perish, but if we obey Jesus and repent, repent of sin, and repent of worldly desires, of our own desires, and we come into fellowship with God, then we seek and desire and do the will of God, and we come into fellowship with Him.

We have to obey Jesus Christ, repent of all sin, and worldliness, and be baptized in water for the washing off of our sin, and then Jesus Christ cleanses us of all unrighteousness, of our past sin. Through our fellowship with Him, we come into fellowship with God Himself because Jesus Christ Himself is God. Jesus gives His Holy Spirit in those who obey Him, those who turn away from, repent of sin, and earthly desires, earthly pleasures, to go after Him, those who desire Him more than anything, those who seek His fellowship. He gives His Spirit in them so that they can live in fellowship with Him. Without Jesus we can do nothing. If we are not in fellowship with Jesus, then we will perish, we are doomed, but if we are in fellowship with Jesus we are in fellowship with God, and we have life in us. Believers seek fellowship with other believers. They look for friendship of the world, but the true fellowship that we need is fellowship with God, fellowship with Jesus Christ, then we can read this verse with understanding. He says: “and we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we may know Him, who is true, and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” Jesus Christ Himself is the true God and eternal life and if His Spirit dwells in us we are in fellowship with Him.

Most believers do not have the Spirit of Christ. They are not in fellowship with Him. They believe that they have salvation but they are separated from God and they are on the road to destruction. Are we living in fellowship with Jesus? Are we living in fellowship with God, or are we living in sin and do we seek the fellowship of the world? Friendship where the world is enmity with God. We need to love Jesus Christ and serve Him with all our heart, and stay in fellowship with Him until the very end. Are we living in fellowship with Jesus Christ? Are we being led by His Spirit? Are we one with Jesus Christ.

May Jesus bless you.
