Characteristics of Fellowship, Part 4

I John 3:19-24

We have considered the characteristics of true fellowship over the last several weeks. We have looked at these characteristics in relation to our prospect, in relation to our position, and tonight we want to look at them in relation to our prayers. John gives us three things that the believer possesses in relation to prayer when they are in true fellowship.

I. The Believer Has Assurance. v19-20

II. The Believer Has Confidence. v21-22

III. The Believer Has A Witness. v23-24

When it comes to our prayers, do we have assurance? Do we have confidence? Do we have the witness of the Spirit of God? This is a characteristic of true fellowship with Christ. The question for each of us this evening is simple; are we enjoying fellowship with Christ? If not, what must change? Will we be willing to make that change?
