“Truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus Christ.” (1:3)
We all love human fellowship, seeing each other and being together. In these days of the pandemic and lockdown, our meeting up with each other has been, for very good reasons, severely limited. However, John reminds us that our fellowship with one another is only really based upon the fact, that first, our fellowship is with the Father and the Son. Unless we have that spiritual fellowship with the Father and the Son, our fellowship with one another has no eternal significance. God wants fellowship with us, so we can have true fellowship with one another. God wanted that fellowship from the beginning. He wanted it with Adam. He had it for a short time, but then it was broken and became lost. In Christ, it can be restored again. Through the death of God’s Son, the shedding of His blood, the forgiveness of sins and the uniting of our hearts with God’s by the power of His Holy Spirit, true fellowship can be known once more. In these days of changing circumstances, it is good and vital to know that if we are joined to Jesus Christ, we have unchanging, unbroken fellowship with Him forever.
PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you that whatever happens in these days, I can always know real, valuable fellowship with You.”
