Fellowship In Eternal Life

I started reading in 1 John this morning and didn’t get very far before the idea of fellowship was brought up. In chapter 1 verses 1-4 John was affirming the physical reality of Jesus. He was referring back to the time he spent with Jesus during his ministry on earth. He confided in his readers the fact that Jesus was real by pointing out that he had heard, seen, and touched Jesus. He was proclaiming this for the purpose of leading his readers to salvation. In verse 3 he equates fellowship with salvation; he is proclaiming the truths of the gospel so that they would have fellowship with other believers. Furthermore, our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. The proclamation of the reality of the gospel produces a fellowship in eternal life, and in turn, fellowship in eternal life produces joy. Brothers, let’s continue to point out truths of the gospel for that is true fellowship which produces an unmatchable joy.

    Wow! Solid stuff! It’s amazing how much joy is talked about in the Bible. We receive joy from our fellowship with others who experience eternal life just as we are. Thanks for sharing that! We ought to be full of joy in our lives.
