Mr. C. Pat Lanyon

The Friendship of God – Spiritual Blessings AS WORKS OF GOD.
6. Friendship With God. 1 JOHN 1.7,3
Significant Scripture passages:
1 John 1:3 & 7
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.
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
The First Fellowship God had with man:
Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
Definition and Notes: fellowship defined from the Greek word:
fellowship, association, community, communion, joint participation, intercourse
1a) the share which one has in anything, participation
1b) intercourse, fellowship, intimacy
1b1) the right hand as a sign and pledge of fellowship (in fulfilling the apostolic office)
1c) a gift jointly contributed, a collection, a contribution, as exhibiting an embodiment and proof of fellowship
2Co 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.
7. Privilege to Serve the Almighty God. MATTHEW 5.16; ROMANS 15.6
MATTHEW 5.16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
ROMANS 15.6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
8. Inheritance from God is assured to Believers. COLOSSIANS 3.24, 1.12; ROMANS 8.17
COLOSSIANS 3.24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
COLOSSIANS 1.12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
ROMANS 8.17 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 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 can always have this reason and rejoice in any circumstance
1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
