UNBROKEN FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD
We have ALL RECEIVED UNBROKEN FELLOWSHIP (ETERNAL LIFE) WITH GOD, OUR FATHER THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, but not many of us are enjoying it. Apprentices and Disciples of Jesus Christ possess unbroken fellowship with God through Christ, a gift often under-appreciated or unrecognized. This fellowship isn't contingent on our actions but on God's faithfulness.
"so that EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES WILL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE IN HIM (IN Jesus)." John 3:15
Eternal life, which is LIFE WITH GOD is a promise fulfilled through faith in Christ. It is God's unwavering eternal gift of His love and presence--UNBROKEN FELLOWSHIP. This unbroken fellowship hinges on God's goodness, not our behavior, and stands firm regardless of our weaknesses.
"No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, GOD REMAINS IN US, AND HIS LOVE IS PERFECTED IN US." 1 John 4:12
Through confession of our sins and humility, God continuously without fail pours out His faithfulness, ensuring His presence never wanes.
"Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” John 6:29
As Christ FOLLOWERS, we're called into eternal fellowship, marked by God's unchanging love. Living in this truth is an invitation to REST IN HIS GRACE, rooted in faith, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
"GOD IS FAITHFUL, through whom YOU WERE CALLED into FELLOWSHIP WITH HIS SON, Jesus Christ our Lord. Now I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment." 1 Corinthians 1:9-10
"Therefore let’s approach the THRONE OF GRACE WITH CONFIDENCE, so that we may RECEIVE MERCY and FIND GRACE FOR HELP AT THE TIME OF OUR NEED." Hebrews 4:16
Many are not even aware they have UNBROKEN FELLOWSHIP with God, even now. God HAS DONE His part, and He is waiting for most to RECEIVE IT. God is FAITHFUL even when we are not. God is FAITHFUL, period.
"Truly, truly, I say to you, the one who believes has eternal life." John 6:47
He is FAITHFUL and not because of anything we do.
"But the Scripture has confined everyone under sin, so that THE PROMISE BY FAITH in Jesus Christ might BE GIVEN to those WHO BELIEVE." Galatians 3:22
God, who is our Father, has already given us everything in ETERNAL LIFE IN CHRIST. He gave it to us as a fulfilled promise.
"And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." John 17:3
To receive this gift of God's unbroken fellowship of LOVE we only need to BELIEVE, and He gives us the Grace to do even that. God requires us to BELIEVE.
"This is THE PROMISE WHICH HE HIMSELF MADE to us: ETERNAL LIFE." 1 John 2:25
God never leaves us, nor will He forsake us. It is impossible. God created faith and faithfulness. He’s the author of ALL FAITH. He gave us THE GIFT OF FAITH. “Faith” and “Faithfulness” are a permanent part of God’s character.
"and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform." Romans 4:21
FAITH is God Himself, and He is the only source of FAITHFULNESS to PERFORM HIS WORD. Embrace the never-ceasing unbroken fellowship with the TRINITY. It's not just a promise but a reality waiting to be lived.
"through whom we also have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we celebrate in hope of the glory of God." Romans 5:2
Stand in awe of the grace that envelops you, allowing the TRINITY to dwell within. Remember, it's not about earning or deserving; it's about accepting and acknowledging the eternal love that never wanes. So, I urge you, to seek this unbroken fellowship.
"For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe." 1 Corinthians 1:21
Ask, pray, and open your heart to receive it. Let the truth of this union guide your steps, transforming your life and radiating through you to others. This is your invitation: live in the fullness of God's unbroken fellowship today and every day.
"After you have suffered for a little while, THE GOD OF ALL GRACE, WHO CALLED YOU TO HIS ETERNAL GLORY IN CHRIST, WILL HIMSELF PERFECT, CONFIRM, STRENGTHEN, and ESTABLISH YOU." 1 Peter 5:10
God has promised to be with us forever, eternally, and permanently. He has called us to HIS ETERNITY, and not because we did anything good, or bad, but because HE IS FAITHFUL TO FULFILL EVERY PROMISE WITH YES AND AMEN!
"for it is God who is at work in you, both to desire and to work for His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13
Eternal life is eternal, meaning it is continual, unceasing, forever, and UNBROKEN. God our Father is the SOURCE OF ETERNAL LIFE.
"We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, we also are in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us." 1 John 4:16-19
Eternal life does not come, and then go, and then come back, all based on our behavior. NO! That is a lie! When it comes to ETERNAL LIFE, it is a free gift of the Father that CANNOT BE EARNED.
"But God, being rich in mercy, BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT LOVE WITH WHICH HE LOVED US, even when we were dead in our wrongdoings, MADE US ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST (by grace you have been saved), AND RAISED US UP WITH HIM, and seated us WITH HIM in the heavenly places IN CHRIST JESUS, so that in the ages to come He might show the boundless riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. FOR BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED through faith; AND THIS IS NOT OF YOURSELVES, it is the gift of God; NOT A RESULT OF WORKS, SO THAT NO ONE MAY BOAST. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them." Ephesians 2:4-10
Eternal life is ETERNAL, and WE ARE CALLED INTO IT. We can only receive eternal life because HE IS FAITHFUL. It is HIS FAITH and HIS FAITHFULNESS we RECEIVE AS A GIFT, and our ONLY PART is to BELIEVE and RECEIVE.
"Now Jesus cried out and said, “The one who believes in Me, does not believe only in Me, but also in Him who sent Me." John 12:44
The gift IS God’s ETERNAL LIFE, which is HIS forever unbroken presence, or fellowship. That means we have UNBROKEN FELLOWSHIP. It means that nothing can separate us from fellowship with GOD. NOTHING, EVER, NOT FOR EVEN A SECOND.
"that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner self, SO THAT CHRIST MAY DWELL IN YOUR HEARTS THROUGH FAITH; and that you, BEING ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN LOVE, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height and depth, and to know AND TO KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST WHICH SURPASSES KNOWLEDGE, that you may be MAY BE FILLED TO ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD. Now to HIM WHO IS ABLE TO DO FAR MORE ABUNDANTLY BEYOND ALL THAT WE CAN ASK OR THINK, according to the power that works WITHIN US," Ephesians 3:16-20
Fellowship with God is not based on our good or bad behavior, it is based on His absolute goodness.
"who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God." 1 Peter 1:21
GOD WANTS FELLOWSHIP WITH US… so badly, that He sent His Son to pay for what we could never pay. The more humble we are (knowing we are sinners saved by Grace) the more we can receive HIS GOODNESS. It’s by HIS MERCY we receive His ETERNAL LIFE and not because we deserve anything, cause we don’t.
"What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life— and the life was revealed, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was revealed to us— what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that YOU TOO MAY HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH US; AND INDEED OUR FELLOWSHIP IS WITH THE FATHER, AND WITH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. These things we write, so that OUR JOY MAY BE COMPLETE. 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. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; BUT IF WE WALK IN THE LIGHT AS HE HIMSELF IS IN THE LIGHT, WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND RIGHTEOUS, so that He will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us." 1 John 1:1-10
If any behavior from us can gain favor from God, and it can't, it would be through confessing our weaknesses, faults, and flaws.
"Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me." John 14:1
God pours out HIS FAITHFULNESS regardless of our confession of sins, weaknesses, and impotence BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL.
"The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son." 1 John 5:10
God delights in our confession of the truth about our sinful nature. So, we should freely confess our weaknesses, BECAUSE HE IS FAITHFUL! God never leaves us and the FELLOWSHIP cannot be broken because we our sin, just the opposite. However, we can reject God's goodness and ignore His faithfulness. Yes, we ignore it, but God cannot and will not fail because HE IS FAITHFUL.
"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.” Matthew 18:20
When we are BORN AGAIN, we are BORN FROM ABOVE, BORN FROM GOD’s WILL. He is our FATHER and “THE FATHER OF ALL FATHERS,” and His FELLOWSHIP is ETERNAL. God’s love for us is ETERNAL and therefore His love for us is UNBROKEN.
"Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Colossians 3:16-17
Our Heavenly Father takes ownership and responsibility of us like a good father would. He asks us to BELIEVE, RECEIVE, and to SHINE in CELEBRATION by loving one another…. that’s it. Our FELLOWSHIP with GOD is totally ON GOD, He does His part and my part. Our part is to BELIEVE, RECEIVE, and WALK WITH HIM IN THIS TRUTH.
"But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What are we to eat?’ or ‘What are we to drink?’ or ‘What are we to wear for clothing?’ For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. BUT SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE PROVIDED TO YOU. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:30-34
Once we are BORN AGAIN, BAPTISED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT we permanently dwell IN CHRIST. Therefore, once we are BAPTISED INTO CHRIST we don’t EVER have to ask the Holy Spirit to come to us, or to dwell in us, because He has already done so. Holy Spirit comes in immediately and never leaves. We’ve been given the Holy Spirit as a pledge and a promise that God will never leave us.
"Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave us the Spirit as a pledge." 2 Corinthians 5:5
Based on the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit does not “come and go!” The HOLY SPIRIT COMES AND STAYS and ABIDES IN US FOREVER!” What God has done, HE DID FOREVER, giving us ETERNAL LIFE. Our Heavenly Father did not bless us because of our strengths, He blessed us based on our impotence and weaknesses.
"BUT AS GOD IS FAITHFUL, our word to you is not yes and no. For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silvanus and Timothy—was not yes and no, but has been yes in Him. For as many as the promises of God are, in Him they are yes; therefore through Him also is our Amen to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, WHO ALSO SEALED US AND GAVE US THE SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS AS A PLEDGE." 2 Corinthians 1:18-22
The BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST has redeemed us, purchased us, and now we are not our own. Because of the Cross of Calvary, we are owned by GOD HIMSELF. As our Father, He placed His Spirit in us as an ETERNAL PLEDGE declaring that He will never leave us, forsake us, or abandon us, ever.
"For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory. The statement is trustworthy: For if we died with Him, we will also live with Him;" If we endure, we will also reign with Him; If we deny Him, He will also deny us; If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself." 2 Timothy 2:10-13
Because of the Blood of Christ, His FINISHED WORK, the HOLY SPIRIT COMES AND STAYS, PERMENANTLY. God the Father HAS RESTED, and through CHRIST He has called us into HIS REST. The presence and glory of God is within us, and through us, and we are in it, forever and ever. HE IS IN US TO TRANSFORM US. He never stops working in us and through us, transforming us into the Image of Christ.
"Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for HE HIMSELF has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER ABANDON YOU.” Hebrews 13:5
