REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: Acts 2:12; I John 1:1-7 //
12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”
I John 1:1-7
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our[a] joy complete.
Light and Darkness, Sin and Forgiveness
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[b] sin.
In Christ Jesus, believers have access to fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ and fellowship with one another. A relationship with Christ preceeds fellowship with Christ and fellowship with Christ preceeds fellowship in Christ. The following fellowships are possible:
i. Fellowship of His Son – I Corinthians 1:9. ii. Believers Fellowship – Acts 2:12 iii. Fellowship of the Holy Ghost – Phil. 2:1 iv. Fellowship of His Suffering – Phil.3:10. v. Fellowship of the Mystery – Ephesians 3:9 vi. Fellowship with one another – I John 1:7 vii. Fellowship of the Gospel – Phil. 1:5.
PRAYER: Pray that the Lord will establish your feet in fellowship with Him.
