FELLOWSHIP BY LOVE

“God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9).
Every Christian has been called into fellowship with the Lord by a spiritual law. However, not all of them are in fellowship with the Lord by love.
To fellowship by law means partnership or fellowship with Him without any committal relationship, i.e, a fellowship based on legality and not affective emotionalism- fellowship by necessity, not borne out of sincerity of heart. On the other hand, to fellowship by love means there is an intimacy in your relationship with Him, a beautiful exchange of love.
A man can get married to a woman and become one with her by law, but communication may be absent. There may be disagreements every now and again in that marriage. So, although they’re one by law, they may not be living as one. In the same way, that you’re a child of God doesn’t mean you’re in fellowship with Him by love.
Fellowship by love means there’s an effectual communication, an intimacy. You love the Lord passionately and He’s all that you seek.
In other words, the reason you pray, fast, and study God’s Word is not because you have a need. The reason you’re in every church service and dedicated fervently to the things of the Spirit is not because you want God to do anything for you, but because you love Him. It’s those who are in fellowship with God by love that enjoy the greater blessings of His Kingdom.
Being in fellowship with Him by love means your devotions are inspired by love and not by law. It means you’re in fellowship with Him because you love Him and nothing else. This is what produces covenant friendship between you and the Lord.
The friends of Jesus are those that know the mind of God. They enjoy a unique fellowship with the Master— fellowship by love! As a result, they have insight into divine secrets of the Kingdom (John 15:15).
Make a conscious decision today to
fellowship with the Master in love, and watch your life move in the direction of God’s perfect will for you.
Further study: The first epistle of John (1 John) gives an in depth expository asserting that one of the main aims of the Christian message is that we may enter in to the apostolic fellowship, which is “with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ, having access by the Spirit- 1John 1:3, Ephesians 2:18.”
