Your whole life should be one of continuous Fellowship with Christ. Fellowship with God is not limited to the house; It is also as you drive, cook, washes dirty clothes & dirty plates, serves others, in your office, in the market or stores, in fact, in all your daily activities. When you are in Christ through your daily fellowship, what HE said in John 16: 24 applies to you; “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask, and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” The Grace of God will be sufficient for you, and one can confidently recite Psalm 23:6 “Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” Amen.

The Premise For Having Fellowship With God
A. “GOD IS LIGHT”
The figure of light is often used in the Scriptures to describe good, righteous, and true – Ephesians 5:8-10. Therefore, God is good, righteous, and trustworthy!
B. “IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL”
The darkness would represent the opposite of light; evil, unrighteousness, falsehood. Therefore we can never think of God as countenancing sin. Fellowship with God requires that a person takes sin seriously. “if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1: 9
FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD REQUIRES AN ADVOCATE
1 John 2:1-2 “My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense – Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins. And not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”
The “Man upstairs,” HIMSELF IS THE PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS.” The word “propitiation” means “appeasing.” Again, we have fellowship with God in the object the purpose was first formed, namely, His Glory. The deeds of the Most High tend to manifest his majesty and glorify his Godhead. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy hath chosen us in him from before the foundation of the world, and who having, chosen us, will glorify us and bring us to himself at last?”
Fellowship with God is the most prominent characteristic of His plan. Throughout the whole way of salvation, you have seen displayed the justice and the mercy of God, each with undimmed luster. You have seen His Grace in forgiving the sinner; you have seen His holiness in avenging sin upon the substitute. You have seen his truthfulness acting in two ways, his truth in threatening—by no means sparing the guilty, His truth in the promise. The word “fellowship” not only signifies concord of heart, but it implies carrying out of that concord a little further, in converse or mutual Communication.
They who have by His GraceGrace believed, and have been washed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ, have peace with God through Jesus Christ our Lord. They are “no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the Saints and of the household of God,” and they have access with boldness into this GraceGrace wherein we stand.
Those in the kingdom under the dispensation of the second Adam have the complete restoration that fellowship lost to them by the sin and disobedience of their first federal head. We can say we have had Fellowship with God in this respect, that the very thing which is His happiness has been our happiness.
Fellowship with God brings us to the same conclusion Apostle Paul preached and wrote in Romans 8: 38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Spiritual Growth can only occur as we learn to know Christ and as we learn to know Christ and as we make Jesus our Savior and the Lord of every part of our lives.
