The calling we have received of the Father is a call into fellowship with His Son Jesus Christ and when we fellowship with the Son then truly we are in fellowship with the Father.
1 John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly OUR FELLOWSHIP IS WITH THE FATHER, AND WITH HIS SON JESUS CHRIST.
The place of fellowship with the Son is the fellowship with the Godhead and its a place where we meet as believers that’s why we must not forsake the gathering of the saints, for as we fellowship together then we are fellowshipping with the Father as brethren.
Hebrews 10:25 NOT FORSAKING THE ASSEMBLING OF OURSELVES TOGETHER, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
“When we stay in fellowship with the Son there will be no division in the body of Christ because the fellowship is with Christ and Christ is not divided rather He is One in fellowship with the Father but when we live in division, it’s a reflection that we are out of fellowship with the Son.”
Understanding that as we fellowship with the Son then we fellowship with the Godhead, because Jesus Christ house the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
The Apostle said to us by the Spirit of God that as we have received Him we should walk also in Him when we are walking with Him a fellowship proceeds in us and then we fellowship with the Father.
Colossians 2:6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
The provision made unto us in the place of fellowship with the Son is a fellowship with the Godhead. That’s why Jesus prayed to the Father so that we might come into that fellowship with the Father.
John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, THAT THEY ALSO MAY BE ONE IN US: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
We must understand that the fellowship we have been called into is a fellowship to be like the Godhead and to be like the fourth person in Them.
“The fellowship with the Son is the fellowship with the Godhead and a calling into Godhead”
Christ has made this provision for us that we may be one in Them, just as the They are One. That’s why God is so faithful for allowing us to come into this calling of fellowship which Jesus prayed for.
1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Somebody may ask that how did you know these things are true that we dwell in the Father and that our fellowship with the Father is true. We understand first of all that we are Sons of God.
Romans 8:16 THE SPIRIT ITSELF BEARETH WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT, THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD:
8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
We understand by the help of the Spirit that we are the children of God and Sons are we by Christ Jesus. Again we understand that we dwell with Him in fellowship by the help of the Spirit of God.
1 John 4:13 Hereby KNOW WE THAT WE DWELL IN HIM, AND HE IN US, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
That’s what fellowship entails it brings about Oneness and that’s why we saw Jesus praying it for us before the Father. Fellowship actually means Oneness.
“Until you enter into the fellowship of the Father and become One with the Godhead through Christ your Sonship right in the kingdom is not complete”
We must therefore live with this understanding that we have been called unto the fellowship with Father even the Godhead. That’s why our hearts must burn for fellowship with the Father. Our daily walk is for fellowship with the Godhead. We must long for fellowship with the Son and it will make us be more like the Father. The provision of this fellowship is to bring that God’s life in us which is inherent in us by the provision of the new birth. The fellowship with the Son is the fellowship of Gods. Be blessed!
