FELLOWSHIPPING WITH GOD INCREASES YOUR LOVE!
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him (John 14:23).
When man fellowships with God, it increases his love for Him. God desires the fellowship of man because He created him in His own image and likeness. When you study the creation story in the book of Genesis, you will discover that God was always having fellowship with man at the cool of the day. But along the line, that fellowship was shattered as a result of sin. Man could no longer have fellowship with God. The fellowship of man with his Creator increases his love for God.
The more man fellowships with God, the more he experiences his Father’s love. Of course love is reciprocal, hence, you give and you also take. Jesus Christ said in the opening text, if anyone loves Me, he will keep My word. As a Christian, your love for Jesus Christ is expressed by obedience to His Word. Whenever you disobey God’s Word, you fail to express your love for Him. Obedience to God’s Word is an act of love. Loving and obeying God’s Word is an act of worship that increases your love for Him.
Also, when you fellowship with God, you are communing with Him in the Spirit. That is the reason why the Bible says that you become one with Jesus Christ through the process of fellowshipping with Him. That is why Apostle John told us in 1 John 1:3, “That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.” A Christian’s fellowship with God is divine and at the same time bonded by love which is the greatest of all.
Daily Tip: When you fellowship with Jesus Christ by obeying His Word, your love for God increases greatly in life. Shalom!
Golden Text: God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord (1 Corinthians 1:9).
