Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Fellowship with God

Genesis 3:8 (NLT)
    “When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the LORD God walking about in the garden….”

Genesis 5:22-24 (NLT)
      “After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch lived in close fellowship with God for another 300 years, and he had other sons and daughters. 23 Enoch lived 365 years, 24 walking in close fellowship with God.”

Father it is clear that from the very beginning of creation you determined, designed and desired fellowship with the human race. Why else would you create us in your image and likeness but that we might know you and live in the joy of your presence. What a unique thought Father, that we finite people, have the privilege of fellowship with the infinite God of creation. It reminds me of Psalm 144:3 (NLT)O LORD, who are we that you should notice us, mere mortals that you should care for us?”

Thank you Father that through the sacrifice and resurrection of your Son we have been reconciled and renewed in our relationship with you. As 1 John 5:20 (NLT) tells us so clearly: “….now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.”

Father it reminds me of the song:

Friendship with Jesus!
Fellowship divine!
Oh, what blessed, sweet communion!
Jesus is a Friend of mine.

Thank you Father for the pleasure of your fellowship.
