There is one lesson that all young Christians should learn and that is the absolute necessity of fellowship with Jesus each day. This lesson is not always taught at the beginning of the Christian life nor is it always understood by the young convert. He should realise that the grace he has received the forgiveness of his sins his acceptance as God¿s child his joy in the Holy Spirit can only be preserved by daily renewal in fellowship with Jesus Christ Himself. Many Christians backslide because this truth is not clearly taught. They are unable to stand against the temptations of the world and of their old nature. They strive to do their best to fight against sin and to serve God but they have no strength. They have never really grasped the secret that the Lord Jesus in heaven will continue His work in them every day but only on one condition - every soul must give Him time each day to impart His love and His grace. Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day is the indispensable condition of growth and power. Read Matthew 11 - 25-30. Learn from Me "and you will find rest for your souls" (vv. 28-29). The Lord will teach us just how meek and humble He is. Bow before Him tell Him that you long for Him and His love and He will let His love rest on you. This is a thought not only for young Christians but also for all who love the Lord. If you desire to live this life of fellowship with Christ if you wish to enjoy this blessed experience each day then learn the lesson of spending time each day without exception in fellowship with your Lord. In this way your inner man will be renewed from day to day. The three persons in the Godhead are the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. Each one is different from the others just as each one of us is an individual distinct from others and standing in certain relations to others. God desires to reveal Himself as a person; He will reveal Himself and it is our holy calling to enter into fellowship with Him. God greatly desires this fellowship with man. But sin has come between man and his God. Even in the Christian who thinks he knows God there is often great ignorance of and even indifference to this personal relationship of love for God. People believe that at conversion their sins are forgiven that God accepts them so that they may go to heaven and that they should try to do God¿s will. But the idea is strange to them that they may and must each day have this blessed fellowship with God just as a father and his child on earth have pleasure in fellowship. God gave us Christ His Son in order to bring us to Himself. But this is only possible when we live in close fellowship with Jesus Christ. Our relationship to Christ rests on His deep tender love for us. We are not able in ourselves to reciprocate this love to Him. But the Holy Spirit will do the work in us. For this we need to separate ourselves each day from the world and turn in faith to the Lord Jesus so that He may pour out His love in our hearts (Rom. 5 - 5) and so that we may be filled with a great love for Him. Dear soul meditate quietly on this thought." Take time to believe in this personal fellowship. Tell God of your love."
