My Daily Devotional


Fellowship With God

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
1 John 1:7

Do you have the right fellowship with God in your daily life? Does God lead and direct you in the path you need to follow? These are important questions for you to ask yourself, as your future could depend on what your fellowship is with God. When you asked Jesus into your heart, your life changed, as you walked out of darkness into the light, out of a life filled with sin, to a life without sin. He expects you now to be perfected and holy in the sight of God. You need daily fellowship with God in order to live the life that He wants you to follow. Christian fellowship is more than attending Church — it is “assimilating” into the body of believers, becoming “one” in worshiping, loving, caring and sharing. According to the scripture above, fellowship is not an optional matter for believers. For the blood of Jesus Christ to have its continual cleansing effect over our sins, we must remain attached to Christ. If we sever fellowship with God, we risk cutting off the circulation of the cleansing blood! Keep in mind, salvation is based on “faith,” and is not earned by performing “works” such as attending Church (Eph. 2:8-9). But fellowship with Christ’s body, the church, is critical in helping to sustain your faith by providing ministry, encouragement, and an atmosphere of spiritual “cleansing” and growth. Our relationship with Jesus Christ is obviously the basis for the forgiveness of our sins, and the Bible indicates that we must have a proper relationship with Christ. Fellowship with the body of Christ is not just an option, but is critical to our continued survival as Christians.
