Fellowship - the Reality and the Experience of Oneness

Text: John 17:20-23 & 1 John 1:1-7

New Realities lead to New Experiences

An example from the past:

The New Reality The New Experience

The incandescent Social order after sundown light bulb and safe travel at night

Some examples from the present:

The New Reality The New Experience

The cell phone The ability to have unlimited

The smart phone access to people and The internet information

The Global Positioning Never be lost again! System (GPS)

Every New Reality ushers in a New Experience of life

Jesus’ prayer for a New Reality:

John 17:21 “That they may all be one.”

John 17:22 “That they may be one, just as we are one.”

John 17:23 “That they may be perfected in unity.”

The New Reality The New Experience

We have heard

We have seen

We have touched Fellowship with

The Word of Life the Father and

The Word made Flesh with the Son

Eternal Life

(The Gospel of Jesus)

Footnote: 1 John 1:3 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.

The New Reality The New Experience

Walk in the Light Fellowship with

One another

Footnotes:

1 John 1:4=7

What does it mean to walk in the light.

Personal holiness, and fellowship with God

Dispel the darkness by the presence of your light.

Not calling out the darkness.

Telling people in darkness to avoid darkness is fruitless, because they cannot see in the dark.

Matthew 5:16

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

The New Reality The New Experience

Made a part of A life of community

the body of Christ and interdependence

Footnote:

See 1 Cor. 12:11-27

Failure to embrace the New Experience

Calls into question

The certainty of the New Reality
