Have you ever wondered why we’re here? What’s the deal with all this earth stuff? Well, I have. Before I was born-again, those thoughts occurred to me and I pondered them quietly but didn’t arrive at any conclusion. Now I know and I’m going to share that with you.
First of all, we have to go back to the beginning – at least our beginning- to the time of Adam and Eve. Here we see that they walked and talked with God, communing with Him daily. That’s fellowship and that’s God’s desire and heart – to fellowship and commune with Him. He loves us and wants to spend time with us. Wow! And we thought our job was to work ourselves to the bone doing good works to impress Him and be acceptable to Him. Not so.
Let me say that there’s a difference between relationship with God and fellowship with Him. Jesus bought and paid the price so we could get back into relationship with God. That’s a done deal. Our part is to accept and receive what He did. We can’t make it any better or worse. It’s already done and accepted by the High Court of Heaven.
Then there’s fellowship with our Heavenly Father. That means walking, talking, and communicating with Him – daily, all day long. And I might add, fellowship is a two-way street. He talks, we listen. We talk, He listens. But in reality, most people talk and don’t give God equal time!
So we see that fellowship with our Father, the Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is our main purpose in life. But there’s more. God has a plan for each of us that is wonderful beyond measure. We need to seek Him and find out what that plan is and then line up with Him and fulfill it. We actually fellowship with God by getting into His Word because God and His Word are One. That’s how we get to Him.
John 1:1 (KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14 (KJV) 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
One of the general things God has for us is seeking Him in all we do. You see, His eyes go to and fro throughout the whole earth looking and looking for those who will believe His Word, speak His Word, and give Him access to moving in their lives on that word. That’s awesome!
Yes, there’s a lot more to living on planet and serving God, but this should be a good starting point for you. Praise the Lord for His goodness to us!
1 John 1:3-4 (KJV) 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.
4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
Philippians 2:1 (KJV)
1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
Matthew 6:33-34 (KJV) 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
2 Chronicles 16:9 (KJV) 9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
Proverbs 4:20-27 (KJV) 20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
Hebrews 13:5b (KJV) 5 … I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
