Called to Fellowship
Fellowship with Jesus and sweet communion with the Holy Spirit opens your eyes so you can see God as a loving Father. Your view of God is usually formed by your perception of your natural father. If you grew up with a punitive, emotionally isolated dad you may see God the same way. If your dad was never there for you, or if he expected perfection and made no allowances for mistakes, that is probably your image of God. When you fellowship with Jesus, you will get a different image of your Heavenly Father. This God who made you wants you to know His character, and His plans for your life. When you fellowship with Jesus through the Scriptures you come to know this God and can be filled with His fullness. The Holy Spirit is your Teacher and He takes the things of Jesus and reveals them unto you. Jesus went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed by the devil (Acts 10:38). He did what His Father does, and He says what His Father says. Jesus is a true representative of the Father; to know Jesus is to know the Father.
God, you called me into fellowship with your Son Jesus Christ my Lord and you are faithful. You called me to this through the gospel that I might share in the glory of my Lord Jesus Christ. You saved me and chose me for this holy work not because I deserved it but because that was Your plan long before the world began–to show Your love and kindness to me through Christ Jesus. Thank You for calling me; You are faithful to confirm Your word with signs and wonders for Your glory. I love You, my Lord God, with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind (intellect), and I shall love my neighbor as I do myself. Jesus, you are Lord! Amen
