THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A fellow came into the lumber yard asking for some "four-by-twos."
Clerk, "You mean two-by-fours?"
Man, "Let me check." Then he went to the car, talked to his friends, and returned. "Yep! Two-by-fours!"
Clerk, "How long do you want them?"
Man, "Let me check." Then he went to the car, talked to his friends, and returned.
"We want them a long time. We're building a house."
1 John 1:6-7
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son
cleanseth us from all sin.
Christ is "building a house" in heaven for us to inhabit for eternity.
We are going to have "fellowship" with Him there FOREVER!
Is your "fellowship" with Him today?
Keep in mind, the Greek word for fellowship is koinoneo, meaning to communicate and partake with.
Do you fellowship with Christ in His love?
He loves the saints and is always caring for them.
He loves the lost sinners and is always trying to bring them to repentance and salvation.
We are to love as Christ loves.
Do you fellowship with Christ in His desires?
He desires for God to have preeminence.
He desires for sin to be driven out.
He desires for God's will to be done in the earth.
When we are born again, we are given His desires.
Do you fellowship with Christ in His ministry?
He ministers to mankind by telling the Gospel and by works of kindness.
We are given the "ministry of reconciliation," and are to be "ambassadors" to the world.
Do you fellowship with Christ in His obedience?
The Bible tells us that when Christ became a man, He became "obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."
The beginning of salvation is surrender to His Divine will.
The expression of salvation is the same.
If we fellowship with Christ in love, desires, ministry, and obedience, we shall also fellowship with Him in Glory!
He promises that we shall sit with Him in His throne forever!
FELLOWSHIP with Christ TODAY!
