ALL you that make a profession of God, and of Christ, try your selves with the Light that sheweth you sin in your Consciences, and see whether you have fellowship with the Father and the Son, 1 John 1. 3. for all they who have not fellowship with the Father and the Son, are not of the Church of Christ, for his Church is his body, Col. 1. 18. and he is the Head, and the body hath fellowship with the Head; and he that hath fellowship with the Son, hath fellowship with the Father also; for the Father and the Son is one eternal Power by whom all things were made, John 1. 1, 2, 3. and he is pure and holy, and they that have unity with him, must be holy as he is holy, 1 Pet. 1. 15. else there is no unity, 2 Cor. 6. 14. nor fellowship; for this holy God, (Mal. 3. 6.) is an unchangeable being, who cannot be reconciled to any thing which is not of himself, because he is holy, pure and immortal; and all other beings that are not one with this pure being, hath an end, 1 Cor. 15. 28.

For the reference, see William Ames: only the holy have fellowship with a holy God.
