1 John 1:1-7
There exists a breed of Christian, who lives solely to have fellowship with God to the exclusion of fellowship with those begotten by Him!! Fond they are of repeating that all too familiar phrase, “it’s just me and the Lord”. Yet, if one were to ask such people what they think of other Christians, they would state their honest opinion plainly, namely that they cannot stand the sight of them! Yet, the Word of God tells us categorically that they that love God love those begotten of God!!
This sermon is a direct challenge to the individualised Christianity we see springing up across our land. True Koinonia (fellowship) with God and His Son has been made possible only by the indwelling Holy Spirit in the new birth; yet such Koinonia cannot be reserved between the child of God and God alone, but MUST have it’s true expression in the living out of Koinonia (fellowship) between the Brethren!!
