The theme for today’s Turning Point daily devotional by Dr. David Jeremiah is ”Union With God” and it is a message designed for today’s spiritual growth and enhancement.
SCRIPTURE: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.-1 John 1:9
The New Testament word fellowship (koinonia) comes from a root word that means “common.” From that idea come the notions of commonality, community, and communion. The apostle John in his first epistle wrote about the fellowship we have “with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ” (1 John 1:3)—and, therefore, the fellowship we have with others who are in fellowship with God. But the idea of fellowship (commonality, union) with God raises the question: What happens to our union with God when we sin?
John anticipated the question and went on to write, “The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). He then put this theology in practical terms: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” No one lives a sinless life, so we all need to know how to enjoy our fellowship, our oneness, our communion with God through confession and forgiveness.
Never doubt God’s desire to fellowship with you. Confess your failures to Him and receive His forgiveness.
The fellowship of God is delightful beyond all telling.
