I John 2:17 Fellowship with God is the essence of eternal life and will cause you to do His will. We cannot stay on the fringes, on the outside looking in, isolated, avoiding intimacy with God. We must read the Word of God daily. That is when faith takes place and gives direction. We are a slave of whose will we obey. It is that simple. We can become self-deceived, self-absorbed and self-consumed. Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, the enemy prevails over that place. Quit thinking about yourself so much. Quit trying to think your way to God. Abide in Christ - it speaks of fellowship. Get away from the instruments of man's correctness, to make yourself something and somebody, self-serving and perfect. We are too busy honoring our prideful and stubborn selves. But the Word causes us to think like a Son. It's the difference between a funeral song and a graceful waltz. Be careful of worrying about your image and the things you love in this world. The Holy One will develop His will in us as we fellowship in His presence.
