Friday 21st October, Today’s Article: The Call To Fellowship (Rhapsody of Realities Today)

THE CALL TO FELLOWSHIP 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).

Without fellowship, nothing you do on earth is esteemed in Heaven. That’s why the highest and most important purpose of Christ in the plan of salvation is the call to fellowship; bringing us into fellowship
with God. It’s not enough that you’re born again; what God really wants is fellowship with you. That’s the purpose of the New Birth.

You can love your two-year old child very much, but you can’t have real fellowship with him or her. Real fellowship entails communication—sharing, talking at higher levels where you understand each other and exchange thoughts. This is the kind of fellowship God has called us into.

When John said, “…that ye also may have fellowship with us…,” he wasn’t talking about conversion from a certain religion to Christianity; it’s a declaration of truth. We’ve been called into partnership and togetherness with Deity. It’s the fellowship of the God-kind, a oneness

of spirit. Hallelujah!
The Bible says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were
called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ
our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9). We’re in union with Jesus
Christ. Romans 8:16-17 explains it further. It says, “The
Spirit Himself beareth witness with our spirit, that we
are the children of God: And if children, then heirs;
heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ….”
The underlined portion shows the kind of union we
have with Him: He brought us to the same level with
Himself. This is mind-blowing. But you see, you can’t
function at that high level of oneness and fellowship except
through the Holy Spirit. Your desire should be to fellowship
more with the Holy Spirit every day.

PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for the privilege of being in fellowship, in oneness of spirit with you. As a result of this relationship, every limit and barrier is taken off my way; I experience nothing but progress in my life. Your glory and wisdom function in me and through me in an
overflowing measure; and I experience unprecedented manifestations of your power through fellowship of the Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
