Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways . Over the next 29 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day three with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a path of fellowship.
Walk a Path of Fellowship
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”
1 John 1:7 (NIV)
Who do you enjoy spending time with? Why? From your perspective, what makes a person a good friend and someone you want to spend time with? Of the qualities you just listed, how many are present in your life on a consistent basis? What do you think of the statement, to have a friend you must first be a friend? Are there times you can be a friend to someone that does not yet know how to be a friend?
Relationships with people are hard for me but I suspect that you know that because they are probably difficult for you too. It is often our faults, our sins, that destroy the fellowship we long for with one another. God says that when we walk in the light of Jesus we can walk in fellowship with one another because He cleanses us from all sin. As you pray, ask God to help you walk daily in fellowship with Him. Pray that you would know the fellowship of God’s presence as you forgive and are forgiven. Pray that living in God’s forgiveness would help you to walk a path of fellowship with the people around you each day.
