TOPIC: DAILY FELLOWSHIPS YOU MUST ENGAGE WITH (1)
ACTS 2:42, 46, 1 JOHN 1:3

Fellowshipping takes place around you every day. Anywhere you see a gathering of people, there is always a spiritual side to that gathering whether they say so or not.

1. APOSTOLIC FELLOWSHIP
How do you get into fellowship with the apostles? By reading what they have written or listening to the words they have spoken or are speaking. When you listen to a minister, you are not only hearing the words he is speaking, you are also fellowshipping with the spirit that he carries.

Every time you listen to a genuine man of God preach, understand the fellowship of the mystery of Christ and that every blessing spoken is available for you to share in by faith. If the man of God is genuinely called and appointed by the Lord, there is a table set by the Lord for everyone to come and feast. Share in the wisdom, answers, revelations, understanding, graces, and special operations of God such a man of God brings.

Your fellowshipping will either strengthen or weaken your spirit and you must daily protect the fellowships that strengthen your spirit.

2. FELLOWSHIP WITH THE TRINITY
There are two levels of fellowships emphasized in 1 John 1:3: The Fellowship with the Father and The Fellowship with the Son- Jesus Christ. You must intelligently and intentionally fellowship with the three Members of the Trinity – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Our fellowship with God the Father is a distinct fellowship; our fellowship with Jesus, God the Son, is a distinct fellowship; and our fellowship with the Holy Spirit is a distinct fellowship.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive a divine linkage to my Apostolic joint and the right posture to receive all you have for me there in Jesus’ name. Amen!

*TOPIC: DAILY FELLOWSHIPS YOU MUST ENGAGE WITH (2)*
PHILIPPIANS 3:10, ROMANS 8:17B

Be careful of the fellowships taking place in your life daily. I have shown you two critical fellowships you must engage with on a daily basis: Apostolic fellowship and fellowship with the trinity.

*3. FELLOWSHIP OF THE ANOINTING*
Begin to deliberately get into the fellowship of the anointing. Get into fellowship with anointed things, anointed activities and anointed personalities. Interact with and stay under the anointing. *Don’t ever stay around people that are not anointed for too long.* Sometimes you have to work with people who speak or affect you negatively. After you have dealt with that for eight hours of a workday, if you get back home and you don’t get into fellowship with the Holy Spirit you will transfer that negativity to your spouse, children and those around you.

*4. FELLOWSHIP OF CHRIST’S SUFFERINGS*
There is a level of the glory of God we cannot partake of when we have not shared in His suffering – *bearing the cross of Christ in our generation against all odds.*

*5. FELLOWSHIP OF THE COVENANTS*
God is a covenant-keeping God. He cut covenants with His people. *Put the covenants He has cut with you or your spiritual parents/family in your mouth and fellowship with it.* You should also make it your practice to fellowship with the products of the covenant.

*6. FELLOWSHIP OF THE PROPHETIC*
Every believer should daily fellowship with prophetic Scriptures, men, spirits.

*PRAYER:* Lord, I pray for an activation and heightened sensitivity to the right and godly fellowships in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!

*BIBLE IN A YEAR:* Genesis 39:1-41:16, Matthew 12:46-13:23, Psalm 17:1-15, Proverbs 3:33-35

*TOPIC: DAILY FELLOWSHIPS YOU MUST ENGAGE WITH (3)*
1 CORINTHIANS 3:21, PROVERBS 27:17, 1 CORINTHIANS 11:29-30

Rounding off the daily fellowships you must engage with for a great Christian walk, I want to show you two more.

*7. FELLOWSHIP OF THE CALLING*

There is a fellowship of the calling that entails *fellowshipping with men that are called. The kind of calling that is available determines the kind of revelation that can drop.* The atmosphere in a congregation affects the depths of the anointing that a minister can get to. When God wants to impact you for a higher life, He digs deep and deeper.

*8. FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY OF THE BODY OF CHRIST*

*This is the communion. Breaking bread is one of the highest fellowships you can get into; it is the healing service of the believer.* I don’t think there is any medication that has the potency and potential of the Communion service to heal. The Communion service is a visible expression of the 39 lashes placed on the back of Jesus to heal any sickness that any man can ever have. If you come casually to the Communion table, you get nothing, but *when you come rightly discerning the Lord’s Body, you get healings and miracles.*

*If we take the Communion intelligently, none of us will be sickly, or die young, or be spiritually weak.* The Bible recorded that the Corinthian Church was weak because they were eating the Communion without rightly discerning the Lord’s Body – they were weak, sickly, and they died (1 Cor. 11:29-30). The reverse is the case when we rightly fellowship with the blood and body of Jesus Christ; *the Communion is the mystery of the Body of Christ.*

*PRAYER:* Lord, I thank you for the provision of the calling and the communion, I pray for the heart that partakes of these fellowships correctly in Jesus’ name. Amen!

TOPIC; WHAT HAPPENS IN THE PLACE OF DIVINE FELLOWSHIP WITH THE FATHER? - JOHN 10:27-29



1.Intimacy is Built: As a Christian, you should recognise the voice of God so well that you know when the devil or an evil spirit is speaking to you. It is in fellowship with God that your sonship is established. Your clarity of knowing the voice and the leading of God is guaranteed, established and enhanced through correct fellowship. Your first calling is unto fellowship with Jesus.
2.The Strength and the Power of God are Released: Do a daily fellowship with the right things and not with negative things that you read in the news. God is a Spirit and it is in fellowship with Him that the reality of the fact that He is with you, in you, and for you, is strengthened in your spirit. The power of Christianity comes from communion, fellowship, sharing, and interaction with the Holy Ghost.
3.Confidence in God is Built: Fear ravages the hearts of Christians because their fellowship with the Father is weak. When you fellowship with God, His love grows in you and drives out fear from your heart. There is absolute confidence that settles in your heart when you know that the God of the whole universe is your Father.
4.Trust and Likeness are Built: It is in fellowship that you get into “likeness” in a relationship. John the beloved was one disciple that had a strong relationship and close fellowship with Jesus. He was the one that stayed with the Master at the cross and that was one of the reasons Jesus handed His mother over to him.
5.The Father’s Heart is known: If you spend quality time with the Father, you will feel His heart for His children. You can sense the Father’s heart if you stay in close fellowship with Him.

PRAYER: Lord, baptized me with the spirit of intimacy for a closer walk with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name. Amen!

*TOPIC: UNBELIEF OF THE WILL (1)*
HEBREWS 3:12

God does not want His children to be careless such that they move into a state where they are still children of God but no longer believers.

The above text warns of the evil heart of unbelief. This can also be referred to as the *unbelief of the will. This is a refusal to act according to what you know;* and only a child of God can have this type of unbelief, only a person that has known God and has been exposed to God can have this. But the word of God said “take heed”, that is, you must take personal responsibility to ensure that this possibility does not become a reality in your own life.

There are Christians today that have become victims of this kind of unbelief because they stopped acting according to what they know.

*You need to ask yourself the following questions and answer them sincerely* so as to be able to do a correct assessment of your status in God: How many of my actions reflect what I know to be the truth? How many of my actions are in consonance with the knowledge of God that I have been exposed to? Always strive to make sure the devil is not moving you towards that pathway of unbelief of the will.

*Stop acting differently from what you know.* An unbeliever may not be able to act according to the word of God because of the level of knowledge and information he has been exposed to. On the other hand, it is a known truth that the Holy Spirit is inside everyone that is born-again but it is possible for a believer to act as if the Holy Ghost is not in him. The scripture says you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. That is the correct position of a believer. *Stop acting differently from the evidence of the scripture that you are aware of.*

*PRAYER:* LORD, help me to always act according to the truth of the word of God that I know. Amen!

*TOPIC: UNBELIEF OF THE WILL (2)*
HEBREWS 3:12

The concluding part of our text above talks about, …in departing from the living God. This is actually not talking of backsliding although it can lead to that if one does not take heed. This scripture is actually talking about a state that a believer gets to such that he is still in the presence but out of fellowship with God. *Salvation brought us into a relationship with God but it is maintaining daily appointment with God that brings us into fellowship with him.* It is possible to be in relationship and not in fellowship. *It is in fellowship that we enter into accuracy and we produce impact.* The scripture is however warning us never to allow that happen between us and God.

*When was the last time you and God really had a Father-and-son chat or a Father-and-son fellowship?* This is the state of many believers in churches today where an evil heart of unbelief has come into their hearts because they are not acting according to the word of God. Some believe more in the news on social media than what the word of GOD has said over a matter. This is what the Bible is warning us about that we should run from.

*Don’t replace faith in God with caution where you are more careful than acting in faith.* When was the last time you acted as by the stripes of Jesus you were healed? Do you always consider other alternatives outside of the provision of faith? It is a good possibility that a child of God replaces faith with caution without him knowing it, and that is why we need to take heed.

*The only antidote to this unbelief of the will is to run daily Christianity.* Until we do that, the danger of becoming an unbelieving child of God is very real.

*PRAYER:* I receive grace to practice daily Christianity so as to be saved from the possibility of unbelief of the will. Amen!

TOPIC: BE A WORD PRACTITIONER
JAMES 1:23-25


I usually use this illustration in church about someone who is practicing law and another teaching law. Everyone knows that there is more money in practicing law than teaching it. Be a word practitioner. Vital Christianity is in practicing the word of God. A vital Christian is the one that practices the word of God not the one that comes to church regularly. A practicing Christian is a word practitioner not just someone who comes to church and you must continue to be that till you see Jesus.

For example, in our nation today there are medical doctors that are actively in politics now rather than medicine. They graduated as medical doctors but are no longer practicing medicine. I am sure you will not allow such a person to operate your wife on the theatre table because he is no longer practicing. It is in practicing that there is fruitfulness and results. I was a trained electrical engineer, but I am not a practicing one. As a believer, you must never stop being a practicing Christian till you see Jesus.

The way you dress also does not make you a practicing Christian. Your dressing must be a result of your practicing the word of God not that your dress makes you a practitioner of the word of God. Be a daily practitioner of the word of God because that is what makes you to be an effective Christian. Effective Christianity is practicing the word of God all the time: when people see you and when they don’t see you, when your church members are there and when they are not there. Effective Christianity does what is right always.


PRAYER:
I make a decision today to live my life by the principle of the word of God. Amen!

*TOPIC: GENUINE SALVATION EXPERIENCE - ACTS 9:5-6*



There are two major manifestations that flow out of a genuine salvation experience. The first is A PASSION FOR GOD AND THE THINGS OF GOD. The second one is AN AWARENESS OF THE SINFULNESS OF SIN.
A passion for God and the things of God is what makes a believer to always go after activities that bring them into intimacy with the Lord. This is what makes you to want to pray more, study the word of God more and worship God more. This passion drives you to fellowship more with the Lord. The psalmist said, “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD (Psa. 122:1).” That gladness was a product of passion. This passion must be continually stirred up because passion can die if not fed daily. You feed your passion as you appear before the Father in fellowship on a daily basis.
The second proof of your salvation is an awareness of the sinfulness of sin. This makes you not to tolerate sin. Likewise, you cannot allow negative thoughts to settle in your heart, you repent of such immediately. What makes you as a preacher who never masturbated to now be preaching that masturbation is not a sin is loss of awareness to the sinfulness of sin. Everyone that masturbates, either born-again or not, knows that masturbation is wrong. So, for a pastor to preach that it is right means he’s lost already.
Passion for God triggers awareness to the sinfulness of sin. If your passion for God is increasing, your awareness to the sinfulness of sin will also be increasing. Whatever reduces your passion for God and the things of God will also reduce your awareness to the sinfulness of sin.

PRAYER: I will not lose my passion for God and the things of God in Jesus’ name. Amen!

*TOPIC: SPIRITUAL DESENSITISATION (1)*
HEBREWS 3:13

*Spiritual desensitisation is a state whereby a believer has become hardened to what touches God and has lost sensitivity in the spirit.* It involves the hardening of the spirit of a believer. The scripture above is saying that there is a hardening process that can happen to a believer’s spirit such that the tenderness of Christian love, the kindness, and the emotions that flow out of Christ through a believer become hardened. Such a believer will then be no more sensitive in the areas he is supposed to be sensitive.

*There are two major areas where Christians are already desensitized to what actually matters and is of great concern to God. The first is the CHRIST-LESS ETERNITY AWAITING A SINNER, and the second is the IMPENDING RAPTURE.* More than 85% of Christians are already desensitized in these two areas:

*CHRIST-LESS ETERNITY AWAITING A SINNER:* This is one area that Christians have become desensitized. We are no longer concerned or bothered about the eternal doom awaiting a sinner. Many of us have sinners in our place of work, at school, as colleagues but we are not thinking about how they will end their journey in hell if they die without accepting Jesus Christ as their Saviour. That is simply spiritual desensitization.

*THE IMPENDING RAPTURE:* The second coming of Jesus for the saints of God is another area the devil has desensitized Christians. Many believers are not living with the consciousness of this imminent event. A lot of believers live on a daily basis not according to what is written in the word of God and think because they speak in tongues or attend church services, they are already qualified for Heaven. This is not so. *We need to take heed and be sure our life is pleasing to the Father.*

*PRAYER:* LORD, deliver me from the danger of spiritual desensitization. Amen!

*TOPIC: SPIRITUAL DESENSITISATION (3) - HEBREWS 3:13, 2 CORINTHIANS 13:5*

*DECEITFULNESS OF SIN*: the hardening process which is desensitization comes through the deceitfulness of sin. Sin is the violation of the will of God; of the standards of God. But desensitization makes a believer begin to do separation of sins. He says some are little and some are big, and if he continues long along that path, he begins to lose consciousness of the position of God about sin and becomes desensitized. On the contrary, sin is sin before God. Once there is a violation of God’s standards, you have sinned.
The antidote to this desensitization is to go back to daily Christianity, not weekly, not monthly, and not annually; a daily appointment with God which makes a Christian to become activated, and not be a dormant one. An activated Christian will not fall for the bait of deceitfulness of sin because he is awakened and sensitive to the danger. Run from the danger of Christianisation. Christianisation is being churchy without living the Christian life. Having a form of godliness but denying its power.

*ADAPTATION TO WRONG THINGS*: God does not want you to become adapted to what is wrong. If you stay too long around mediocrity, you may not know when you begin to lose taste for excellence. This is what desensitization can do. However, the Bible admonishes us to examine ourselves if we are still in faith. This examination must be a daily affair so as not to become desensitized without knowing.

*NEGATIVE AND WRATHFUL WORDS*: Words carry spirits and Christians are expected to be conscious and aware of words that flow from their mouths. Negative and wrathful words drill holes in your spiritual container. Words spoken in wrath and anger affect you more as a believer than those they are spoken to. Don’t let the devil continually tear your garment in the spirit until you are now wearing rags in the spirit. Be aware of the effects of negative words you speak and caution yourself.

PRAYER:: LORD, help me to be continually aware and conscious of who I am in this world. Amen!

*TOPIC: SPIRITUAL SENSITISATION*
1 JOHN 1:5

*The light of the word of God is the ultimate spiritual sensitizer.* There are things you will never see as a believer when you are in the dark. However, when you are in the light, you see things clearly. Things can easily creep on you in the dark but not in the light. For example, not all sicknesses are the same. *Being in the light enables you to differentiate an attack of the devil.* All statements don’t carry the same power and effects in the lives of people. *Being in the light shows you words that are anointed from demonic statements.* A person in the dark will see all these as the same until the manifestation begins to come. *You can be listening to men that are sentencing you to sorrow without picking the danger of their words because you are not in the light.*

*To be in the light perpetually entails servicing your relationship with God on a daily basis; exhorting yourselves daily and walking with Him daily.* As a believer carrying the glory of God, there is a light that is out of this world that is lighting activities in this world to you. *You will be able to pick the devil for who he is if you are functioning under the light of God.* The same way naira notes look normal under the natural eyes but look differently when under UV light, also a man that looks normal ordinarily looks differently under the light of the anointing.

The danger of not having the light cannot be overestimated. *God expects us as Christians to have the light shinning in our closet on a daily basis. He wants us to be making spiritual progress so as not to be desensitized to sin and darkness.*

*PRAYER:* Help me Lord to stay connected to the word of God which is my ultimate spiritual sensitizer. Amen!

*TOPIC: PASSION FOR AND AWARENESS OF GOD (1)*
2 CORINTHIANS 13:5

You need to take personal responsibilities to remain passionate for God and aware of God. We will be looking at some points that will help us in that area.

*1. DO DAILY SPIRITUAL CHECK-UP:* It is very critical to do a daily spiritual check-up. *You need to be aware of things that you do daily that are making you insensitive to the Holy Spirit.* What is sinful must be sinful to you and you must also become aware of God. *It is the will of God to increase your awareness of God and your awareness of the sinfulness of sin because that is a key to victory that you must never lose.*

You need to regularly evaluate and examine yourselves so as not to get out of faith into the flesh or unbelief. *Christians that don’t examine themselves are not aware spiritually.* If you don’t do daily spiritual check-up, it makes matters that are supposed to be addressed to remain hidden and latent.

*2. DELIBERATELY TEST YOURSELF:* No other person will do this for you, you will have to take personal responsibility for this.

*3. LIVE CONSCIOUS OF THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST IN YOU:* You are to live with the consciousness of the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in you. If you are born again, the Holy Spirit indwells you, and He is not there as a spectator.

*The Holy Spirit wants to partake in our daily affairs but most of the time we keep Him out because of lack of this consciousness.* He wants to guide us and lead us in the way that we should go but we are always busy and insensitive to divine communication. *God is always speaking but we are not listening. Make up your mind from today that you will keep the consciousness of the presence of Christ in you.*

*PRAYER:* I receive grace to be passionate for and aware of God as I practice daily Christianity. Amen!

*TOPIC: PASSION FOR AND AWARENESS OF GOD (2) - 2 CORINTHIANS 13:5*
In conclusion, from yesterday's study:

4. CONTINUALLY KEEP IN STEP WITH GOD: Our text says you should examine yourselves, prove yourselves, and be sure you are not a reprobate. A reprobate is an individual that God has given up on. He was tested, failed the test, and discarded. That is a dangerous place to get to and you must constantly keep in step with God to avoid that.

5. INCREASE YOUR SPIRITUAL ACTIVITIES: Our generation is a peculiar one where demonic activities are gaining grounds and a lot of Christians are not aware of that. Increase your spiritual activities and don’t be a victim of demonic activities unconsciously. Today, homosexuality and transgender that used to be an abomination is now being celebrated. Devil’s activities are on the increase while spiritual activities are on the decline. We need to increase our passion for the things of God. Do you enjoy evangelism? Do you enjoy prayer and study of the word of God?

6. BE FOCUSED ON DIVINE PROCESS: Submission to divine process is what makes the best out of us. There is something on the heart of the Father; the desired end that He has for you. You cannot become that desired end of God without going through divine process. God is not more concerned about the results than the process that produced the results. If the process was wrong and you still had a result, it would still be wrong all the same. Water came out of the rock through Moses but God questioned the process.

7. LEAVE NO ROOM FOR THE DEVIL: Don’t let the devil steal your passion, don’t let the devil block your awareness. Passion and awareness are two signs of a living Christian. Two manifestations of God’s glory in a Christian life are hot passion and clear and sharp awareness. Let these two grow and increase in you. Increase your passion for the right things and increase your passion for God.

PRAYER:: LORD, I receive increased spiritual passion and awareness today. I will not be dense to the devil’s activities around me. Amen!

*TOPIC: THE FEAR OF THE LORD BIRTHS DIVINE GUIDANCE (3) - PSALMS 25:10 – 12, 2KINGS 4:1, ISAIAH 48:17*


Yesterday, I stopped at showing you why fearing the lord is not the end of your relationship with Him. In 2 Kings 4:1, we read “Thy servant my husband is dead and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD.” But these two other things didn't happen to him. If he was following the teaching of the Lord according to Isaiah 48:17, he would not be in debt because the Bible says, “Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go” God's teaching does not lead to losses but this son of the prophet in 2 Kings 4 died prematurely and in debt. Another example is that God will teach you how to treat your body.

Some of you are not treating your body the way God wants the body treated. You feed your body with all kinds of junk between the ages of 13 and 40. By the time the seeds that you have sown in your body begin to produce harvest after the age of 40, your body begins to respond and react, which then results in different issues called by several big names. God in His love will then bring His anointing and healing power, but He will not tell you to go back to that lifestyle that cost you your health after He has healed you. He wants you learn and make use of His teachings on how to deal with your body. God cannot teach a man that doesn't fear Him. A man that does not respect, revere and value God or His Word cannot be taught by God. In fact, God just leaves him!

PRAYER:: Father, I value greatly and revere your Word, help me to daily apply and live out everything you teach me in Jesus name. Amen!

*TOPIC:* INTIMACY WITH GOD - OUR ADVANTAGE (2)
JOHN 13: 1 - 38


I want to show you today what the picture of intimacy looks like from the Bible. Look at what the Bible says in John 13:23:
23 “Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.”

Look at that description. The name had not been mentioned but you know this is a special person. He leaned on His bosom; he placed his head on His chest. That is a picture of intimacy and Jesus allowed it. That is a picture of how God wants you and Him to operate. You know if you come from a family of five children and you are the favourite, you will enjoy some special privileges. I know about that because when my father was alive, I was his favourite child and I knew what it meant when your other siblings send you to your Dad knowing that he won't say no to you. He knows that you didn’t come to him on your own and that you are a messenger, but he also knows he can’t say no to you. God wants you to be His favourite like that.


The Bible does not paint a picture of a God that is as impartial as we say He is. The Bible gives us a picture of God that has two levels of relationship with His people. One is a level of relationship that Jesus paid for. Everybody has equal access at that level. The second level is the one that you pay for. Everybody will understand that we don't enjoy God the same way though God loves us the same way. We don't get rewards from God the same way but He loves us the same way. Among the disciples, here was John that was laying his head on the chest of Jesus. Peter, the apostolic leader did not have the ears of Jesus like John did.


*PRAYER:*
Father, help me to pay the price for intimacy with you in Jesus name. Amen!

*TOPIC: INTIMACY WITH GOD - OUR ADVANTAGE (3)*
JOHN 13: 1 - 38

In continuation from yesterday, let us look at what happened in verse 24.
*John 13:24-25*
_24 Simon Peter therefore (because of this confusion) motioned to him (that is the one that was lying on the bosom of Jesus) to ask who it should be of whom He spake._
_25 Then, leaning back on Jesus' breast, he said to Him, "Lord, who is it?"_

Who is doing this asking here? John. Even Peter could not get that information. *Kingdom leadership is not determined by title, it is determined by closeness, by intimacy.* The leadership of a man in the home is not determined by the fact that he wears a pair of trousers; it is determined by the fact that he is the closest to God – he is the one that can hear God, the one that can know the mind of God.

My wife is a minister of the gospel. God has called her. She has a prophetic ministry. When she ministers, she does so wonderfully. But in our home, I receive direction for the home. As a man, don't say, “Well my wife is more spiritual than I am.” There is nothing like that. *The danger that the world is facing today is that we have men that are spiritual dwarfs. They may be business giants, political giants but when it comes to spirituality they are dwarfs.*

*The busier you get, the more there is the tendency for you to base your lack of spirituality on that busyness.* But let me say this to you, you won't be the first busy person that has intimacy with God. The Bible is full of people that were far busier than you: Presidents like Daniel, Administrators like Nehemiah, Kings like David. These were men that administered nations and also knew God. You too can be intimate with God and never forget this principle, *“the intimate is the leader!”*

*PRAYER:* Father, I pray for more grace and capacity to be more intimate with you as you bless, lift and increase me in Jesus’ name. Amen!

*TOPIC: ENTERING INTO INTIMACY WITH GOD (1)*
JOHN 4:24, JOHN 3:3, JOHN 14:6

Haven looked at the advantages of intimacy with God, what are the things that you must pay close attention to, in entering into intimacy with the Father?

*1. Enter a Relationship with God.*

God is a spirit (see John 4:24). *You cannot approach God to begin intimacy with him without first starting a relationship with God in the spirit.* That relationship is called being born-again. Many people have attempted to approach the spirit world, without becoming born-again; such effort will result in intimacy with the devil.

Jesus said (John14:6) I am the way, the truth and the Life, no man cometh unto the father, but by me. It is very simple. *If you are without Christ, you are without God in this world.* Passing this first test of getting born again qualifies you for the first level of relationship and openness to God. Everybody that is born again has that access God. You can then begin to say, “God you are my father”. You can pray, you can call on him; you can worship him, and much more.

When you say, “Our father, which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name……”, it becomes more than religious word – it becomes *real communication to God and your journey towards intimacy can begin.* If you have never started a relationship with God or you are not sure of the status of your relationship with God, I invite you to begin today.

*PRAYER:* Father, God, I come into a relationship with you in the name of Jesus. I know that I am a sinner and cannot save myself. Today, I accept the sacrifice of Jesus death for me, and his blood that was shed to save me. I believe in my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is my savior. Father, thank you for granting access to you in Jesus name. Amen!

TOPIC: ENTERING INTO INTIMACY WITH GOD (2)
HEBREWS 11:6



Yesterday, we looked at entering a relationship with God as the first pointer to entering into intimacy with Him. Let's go to the next point:

2. Your Born-Again Relationship is an Invitation to an Experience
Beyond being born again, there are further activities that build your relationship towards intimacy with God. The born-again relationship is like the wedding day that gives a couple the legal rights to enjoy each other. But how much of each other they enjoy, will be affected by several things. For example, some couples have been married 10 years and are still on honeymoon, whereas 10 years of married for another couple resulted in a divorce. If you want to get intimate with someone the relationship must not be dormant. It must be continually serviced through interaction.

Through prayer, there are three categories of people you can get into intimacy with either in the spirit or physical:
a. *Who you pray to*;
b. *Who you pray for;*
c. *Who you pray with;*

Doing any of these gets you intimate with people spiritually and supernaturally. When you see a husband and wife that are not flowing together, it is because they have not been praying for each other. *As soon as you begin to pray for your spouse, or anyone, there is a supernatural intimacy that begins to draw you together.*
My wife and I pray together frequently. If she sees me praying, she joins me to pray. So, intimacy is just woven into our lives. I pray with the pastors in the Dream Centre Church and you can see the result in how we are so close to each other.


PRAYER:
Father, I press into a deeper, richer and closer experience with you. I seek an ever-growing intimacy by coming to know you in the place of prayer in Jesus name. Amen!

*TOPIC: ENTERING INTO INTIMACY WITH GOD (3)*
1 JOHN 1:3

We mentioned yesterday that your being born again is an invitation into an experience! It doesn't stop there, let's see what's next!

*3. Your Born-Again Relationship is an Invitation to fellowship*

Another important experience that your relationship with God offers you is fellowship with him. You have an official license to fellowship with Deity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. *When we say we are going to church for fellowship, what it means is that we are coming to service our relationship with God and with one another.*

Look at our text 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."_

*In fellowship, there is a transfer of spirits. The more you fellowship with God, the more knowledge and experience of His spirit you have.* You begin to know his ways, His desires, His feelings, His expectations of you, and the texture of His voice. These experiences become proof of your encounters with Him.

*The clearest proof to human beings that you are a son of God is that you can hear your Father and show us proof of your relationship with Him.* When my younger brother- now a pastor in Lagos Nigeria, just newly got born again, he would ask me how I could hear God. He observed that my responses to whatever personal issue he brought me were accurate. Usually, I will tell him to give me about two to three hours to pray about it before bringing him a response. That is the level of intimacy you can come to in fellowship with your Father.

*PRAYER:* Father, I commit to consistently service my relationship with You in the place of fellowship with Your Spirit, publicly, in church and privately in the place of prayer in Jesus name. Amen!

*TOPIC: ENTERING INTO INTIMACY WITH GOD (4)*
JAMES 4:8, PSALMS 69:9

One final point you must settle in your heart as you seek to enter into deeper intimacy with the Father is that:

*4. Intimacy is Not a Gift.*

*Intimacy is not a gift; Intimacy is a reward.* Don’t ever forget that! You cannot buy intimacy with money. *It is a reward that comes after you have paid the price of loyalty.* God draws you nearer, gives you a closer peek.

*Loyalty is the willingness for someone to sacrifice their personal interest for the interest of the person they claim to be loyal to.* Intimacy is very precious before God, and He never gives it without first demanding and testing for loyalty. Many people are in trouble today because they have brought people into intimacy that have not paid the price of loyalty.

No young lady should bring a young man into her intimacy and give him access to her body when he is yet to pay the price of loyalty to her dignity, to her future and destiny by committing to her in marriage. Merely saying, “I love you “, does not prove loyalty. He must go beyond, “I love you” and show proof of his loyalty by committing himself and future to her. In the same way, *God doesn’t open His intimacy to just anybody. The value of intimacy with God is priceless. You may have been around some men of God, who have paid the price of loyalty, and their closeness to God is palpable; you can feel it.*

*PRAYER:* Father, I commit to draw near to you. Let the zeal for your presence consume me. Let me experience the treasure of your presence in Jesus name. Amen!

*TOPIC: PRACTICAL STEPS TO BECOMING INTIMATE WITH GOD*
MARK 1:35, PHILIPPIANS 4:6

Today, we will be looking at practical steps to imbibe and follow in being intimate with the Father. They are as follows:

*1. Have an active Prayer life.*

We started earlier that prayer is a communication tool to become intimate with the Father. It is also important to note that *intimacy cannot be achieved in a hurry but by conscious, intentional effort at spending time in steady communication with Him.* You cannot be intimate with someone you only communicate with only once in a month, no matter how good your intentions are.

*Steadiness is key to intimacy. You need to consistently and steadily communicate with God* and when, I say communicate with God, I don’t mean you writing a long list of all the things you need Him to do for you: your exams, your finances, your health, your spouse etc. *The kind of communication that results in intimacy with God is two-way, where you talk to Him and give Him time to talk back with you;* that is how intimacy is groomed and it is the first step you need to take.

For example, if a husband desires intimacy with his wife, he needs to constantly communicate with her. He cannot ignore her for the whole week and then tries to make up with a 7-hour discussion session on Saturday. Rather, a 10-minutes daily talking will do a lot more than trying to make up for no communication with a 7-hour session. In the same way, *you cannot ignore God all week and attempt to make up with long hours praying on the weekend.*

*PRAYER:* Father, may my prayer time become a tool of active and consistent communication with you. To spend time with You, hear You and become intimate with You in Jesus name. Amen!
