“That Ye Also May Have Fellowship with Us”

1 John 1:3

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.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie wrote:

“To have fellowship with the Lord in this life is to enjoy the companionship of His Holy Spirit, . . . and to have fellowship with Him in eternity is to be like Him, having that eternal life of which He is the possessor and originator.”
