Kurosaki: direct fellowship with God

Thursday, March 14, 2024
    For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
    —1 Corinthians 15:22 (NIV)
    Fellowship between God and man, interrupted by the sin of the first Adam, was reopened by redemption bought with the blood of the last Adam. Now anyone can have direct koinonia with God and share His very life—anyone can live a life of love and unity with Christ. This is really the center of Christianity, and “faith” is nothing other than the state of having this life union with God. To be justified by faith means that God has access to repentant sinners through Christ and is thus able to enjoy this koinonia with them. [Continued tomorrow]

    See also 1 Cor. 15:22; John 1:4; 3:6; 5:21; Acts 2:42; Rom. 5:1-2; 1 Cor. 1:9; Gal. 3:24; Phil. 2:1-2; 3:10-11; 1 John 1:3; 5:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Have I grasped fellowship with God as above all other relationships?
