KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 1:9 “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Our key scripture is one of the amazing insights which the Apostle Paul received through the Holy Spirit. He said God is faithful by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
This verse on face value may look like our fellowship with our Lord Jesus is in the sense of the devotion that may exist between us and Him. Well, this fellowship goes beyond praying to Him, It is sharing His oneness with our Lord Jesus. The scripture said this is what we have been called into or appointed to be. He begins by saying that God is faithful. His faithfulness ensures that everything that is concerned with this fellowship between us and the Son of God is established. The word fellowship has the following meaning, association, community, communion, joint participation, intercourse. It also means to share that which one has in anything.
In 1st Corinthians 6:17 the Holy Spirit brings forth the meaning of this word fellowship more clearly. It reads “He that is joined to the Lord is one Spirit”. We have been called into oneness with the Lord Jesus Christ. This makes us partakers of whatever He the Lord is and has. This is the mystery of Christianity. It is a call to be one with Jesus Christ. This oneness is not by our efforts or making. It is purely an act of God’s grace. Something that God did through our Lord Jesus Christ. Hebrews 2:10 “For it became him for whom are all things and by whom are all things in bringing many sons unto glory…”. Our Lord Jesus Christ through His death has brought everyone who has believed in Him into glory. That is fellowship with Him.
Apostle Paul rightly hits on this in Ephesians 3:8 as follows “Unto me who am less than the least of all saints is this grace given that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ”. This unsearchable riches is discovered in our oneness with Him or our fellowship with Jesus. Our key scripture assures us that God is faithful who ensures that everything within this union is enforced. John chapter 15, reveals clearly our oneness or fellowship with the Lord Jesus in the parable of the Vine and the branches the father is described as, the husbandman or caretaker. He ensures that all we need to be fruitful is made available. Dear child of God, you have every provision to live presently on this earth like our LORD JESUS. Throw away all human traditions and act on the word of God. Act in His name and the faithful Father would always honour your actions.
I have been called into oneness with my Lord Jesus, to manifest His power and authority to lead a victorious life .My life reveals His glory and power, conquering sin and diseases in Jesus name.
