Six marks of fellowship with God

Posted: May 14, 2013 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship, The Christian Life, Uncategorized

Fellowship, in the Bible, has the basic idea of sharing, or participation. In terms of God and our relationship with Him it involves our participation in the life of the Trinity, granted by the Father, purchased by the Son, made alive by the Spirit. It is fellowship with God and therefore it is fellowship that is marked by truth and holiness. This is John’s point when he says: “This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5). “Light” in Scripture and when used by John has the two basic ideas of truth and holiness. In others words, to say that God is light is to say that there is no error, or deceit in Him and He is utterly separate from sin: He is holy.

How do I know if I am walking in the light? What does a life that lives in fellowship with Him and is for His glory look like? John does not leave us in the dark.
