“God is faithful, by whom ye are called unto the fellowship of is Son Jesus Christ our Lord” – 1Corinthians 1:9
LIGHT FOR THE NOW: Christianity is not a mere religion. It is about fellowship.
Real or authentic Christianity is God alive and functioning in a human person. It is the very life of Christ in a human body; divinity at work in humanity. This is what many people have not understood about Christianity. They still see Christianity as a religion. But Christianity is not a mere religion. It is about fellowship. Christianity is about a living relationship with a living God. This is what the sacrifice of Jesus made possible for us: to have fellowship with God. This is the greatest achievement. Everything else we could ever want is in our fellowship with God. The greatest glory of Christianity is in our fellowship with God. Once you come into that relationship, everything changes for you. The sacrifice of Jesus brought us into oneness, communion, partnership, union and comradeship with the Almighty God. He died, was buried and God raised Him up with a new kind of life.
The Bible says He was “crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man” (Hebrews 2:9). He did all He did to bring us into a divine, heavenly life. Now, we are partakers of the divine nature. The Bible says He has “raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). He brought us into Himself. Now, from Him, in Him and through Him, we are reigning in life. This is what Christianity is all about; God at work in a man. It is a call to fellowship, to oneness with divinity. You have the divine life of God at work in you and you are in an everlasting fellowship with Him. This is the real experience. He took up His abode in you for you to live in, and through Him. Get to know the reality of this relationship and live beyond the senses of Christianity as a mere religion.
INSTRUCTION: live above the sense of Christianity being a mere religion.
PRAYER: Father, thank you for bringing me into fellowship with you through Christ Jesus, in Jesus Name. Amen.
QUOTE: Christianity is not a mere religion.
