Jesus wants to fellowship with you

I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. John 10:14

God knows everyone; the good, the bad and the ugly. So, what does He mean, that He knows His sheep? The “knowing” here, in reference to His sheep, is more than knowing everything about a person. It is the knowing of FELLOWSHIP. And, in reciprocal, the knowing His sheep have of Him is more than knowing information about Him; it too is the knowing of FELLOWSHIP. And, fellowship with God is a very deep thing. It means JOINT PARTICIPATION in His Kingdom purpose, as we truly submit to Him. He is our LIFE.

Likewise: And then will I profess unto them, I never KNEW you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. Matthew 7:23

Meaning: I never had fellowship with you.

That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:3, 6-7

And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where are you? Genesis 3:8-9
