Called into Fellowship with God

Did you know that God has called us into fellowship with Him and His Son Jesus Christ? We are told this in 1 Corinthians 1:9 where it says 'God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.' 1 John 1:1-3 (TPT) says 'We saw him with our very own eyes. We gazed upon him and heard him speak. Our hands actually touched him, the one who was from the beginning, the Living Expression of God. This Life-Giver was made visible and we have seen him. We testify to this truth: the eternal Life-Giver lived face-to-face with the Father and has now dawned upon us. So we proclaim to you what we have seen and heard about this Life-Giver so that we may share and enjoy this life together. For truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus, the Anointed One.' Praise God! We have been called into fellowship with God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ! Fellowship means communion, companionship, partner, to partake. The Greek word is koinonia, and it means to share in partnership; a reality shared in common. Through Christ, our shared reality is now with the Father. 2 Peter 1:4 (TPT) says 'As a result of this, he has given you magnificent promises that are beyond all price, so that through the power of these tremendous promises you can experience partnership with the divine nature, by which you have escaped the corrupt desires that are of the world.' The Greek word here for partnership is koinonos and it means to participate as a partner, to partake of, to be a companion with, to have fellowship with the divine nature. We are called to participate as a partner with Jesus Christ of the divine nature of the Father. This means we get to share in God's nature. It's because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, that our relationship was restored to the Father. Jesus gave us the relationship so we could have fellowship with Him and the Father. Think about it! God the Father has called you and I into fellowship with Him and His Son Jesus Christ; to participate as a partner. This should get you so excited to know that the creator of all life desires to fellowship with you. Will you heed the call to fellowship with God?
