There is no greater relationship on earth than the relationship that exists as a result of being in Christ. Fellowship with God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and all who are in Christ, is limited by culture, by color, or by country. Unfortunately, the barriers to fellowship that were torn down by the cross (Eph. 2:12-16) are often barriers that some attempt to erect, not realizing that doing such not only is a barrier to their fellowship with God’s people, it is a barrier to their fellowship with God. Why? Because to withhold fellowship from those who, being in Christ, and walking in the light (1 John 1:5-7) is itself walking in darkness. The only thing that can remove sin’s barrier to fellowship with God and His people, is the blood of Christ (Acts 22:16; 1 John 1:7-10). That blood, which was shed for all regardless of their culture, their color, or country. Will you choose Satan’s barrier or the Savior’s blood? While one will continue to build the barrier to fellowship with God, the other will break down the barrier to fellowship with God. Which will you choose? The choice you make will impact with whom you have fellowship.
