The basic unspoken concern of most Christian believers is whether they are in proper fellowship with the Lord at any given moment.
By fellowship, we don’t mean “two fellows in a ship”, as Bob George often said. And by that, he was trying to help believers understand the truth about their relationship to Christ versus the common misunderstanding about “fellowship” with God that we get from incorrect teachings within the church.
The question that needs to be asked of all Christians is, “How do we know, at any given point, that we are OK with God?”
We are not talking about “salvation” here. That is presumed to be a settled issue for anyone who calls himself a Christian.
We are talking about having “peace with God” on a moment-by-moment basis.
So, what is the answer?
