Here’s a conundrum. Recently I heard it being insisted on very emphatically that fellowship with God is incompatible with living in sin. If anyone claims to have experienced fellowship with God, while leading a habitually sinful life, they cannot be reporting true fellowship or communion with God.
I believe this to be true, and yet it’s not the whole story. Because anyone who God has fellowship with in this world, is a sinner.
So how to reconcile these? And in a way that is sensitive to the fact that some dear believers are much more conscious of the habitual sinfulness of their life than they are able to confidently claim that they know what it means to have genuine fellowship and communion with the Trinue God?
