Product Information

1. By nature, no one has comm0union with God. He is light; they are darkness. He is life; we are dead. He is love; we are enmity.

2. It is through Christ that ''we have access by one Spirit with the Father'' (Heb. 10:20). Our communion with God consists in His communication of Himself to us, flowing from our union with Christ.

3. We may have communion distinctly with the Father, distinctly with the Son, and distinctly with the Spirit.

4. Faith, love, obedience, prayer, praises, thanksgivings, are the means of communion with the Father.

5. These same outgoings of the soul in faith, love, obedience, prayer, praises, thanksgivings may also be means of communion with the Son.

6. Believing, loving, obeying, etc., the exercise of all the graces of the Spirit are also means of communion distinctly with the Holy Spirit.

Part II: Of Fellowship Which Saints Have With Jesus Christ

1. The fellowship which we have with Jesus Christ is with Him as Mediator. To make Himself such, He must be ''made of a woman, and under the law, to redeem the ones that were under the law, that they might receive the adoption of sons'' (Gal. 4:4, 5). ''God is faithful, by whom you were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord'' (1 Cor. 1:9). Fellowship with Him is sweetness, delight, safety, and support or consolation. We long for, and seek after these in Him.

2. This fellowship is in grace. ''Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ'' (John 1:17) ''and of His fullness have we all received, and grace for grace'' (1:16). We receive from Him all manner of grace, and in these we have fellowship with Him, such as free favor and acceptance. The saints must give their free, willing consent to receive, embrace, and submit to the Lord Jesus as their Husband, Lord, and, Savior.

3. All our communion with Christ is in purchased grace, the price being His obedience to the Law, and His suffering the penalty for sin.
Part III: The foundation of all our communion with the Holy Ghost consists in His mission, being sent to be our comforter by Christ.
