A CALL TO DEEPER LEVELS OF FELLOWSHIP

Jan 25, 2023

1 Corinthians 1:9 “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Much as we are born again and have come into Christ, there are dimensions in God that are beyond measure and inexhaustible because God is infinite.

As a child of God, you need to strive for greater dimensions of fellowship with Christ because every level of fellowship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit exposes you to the different wealth of grace, mercy, and power. 

John 14:2 “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

It is true that we are in Him(Jesus) but we must be able to pay the price and go after exploring the deeper dimensions in Him far beyond level one (just being saved). 

The way you relate with God matters a lot that is why He is calling us to a place of deeper fellowship with Him because it’s from this place that we are able to reveal Him 1 Corinthians 3:13.

Acts 3:6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”

A man cannot give what he doesn’t have. There are men and women out in the world who have sold themselves to wickedness, become agents of darkness and boldly reveal it. And on this side of life, mediocrity is displayed everywhere: believers are living lives of compromise and are not willing to walk away from things, experiences, places, and illegal acts that compromise their fellowship dimension in God.

Don’t take for granted the life we have been born into, understand the life of God comes in measure as Ezekiel reveals to us. (Ezekiel 47:1-6). The weight you carry is proportional to the level of fellowship you have with the Father.

Romans 5:20 “But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,”

How shall we handle the darkness at hand? More grace is given to the humble as humility compels a man to seek God more than ever before; and as he seeks God, there is a measure of the increase of grace upon his life which is able to handle darkness that is coming at him. (James 4:6)

We must be willing to set down/aside things that have been hindering our fellowship with God like friends, TV programs, etc. 1 Corinthians 10:23

1 John 3:2-3 “but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”

Your being like Him is tied to your seeing and your seeing is tied to your fellowship. The more you see clearly, the deeper the fellowship and the greater the transformation in your life.

This calls for a life of obedience (to the Word and the daily speakings of God) to unlock the riches of fellowship that we have never walked into. 

Levels are determined by the price you’re willing to pay. (James 4:8) It’s time you abandoned the bandwagon and walk into your allotted place. Like John, he took a strategic position in Jesus: when the rest wondered who would betray Jesus, he was lying at His bosom. (John 13:22-23)

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
