“25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Fellowship is at the root of spiritual growth.
Through His word, written in both Hebrew and English, God revealed insight to help us to understand His intended meaning of the word, fellowship.
In His Word, God uses “fellowship” to denote a relationship that is dependent on at least two individuals.
God wants us to know fellowship is actually an interdependent relationship.
Fellowship is also translated into contribution, participation and sharing. What’s clear about the various translations of the word fellowship in the Bible is that actions are always involved in fellowship.
So in essence, fellowship is more than just gathering, it is achieving something with other individuals.
But what does fellowship achieve anyway?
Because fellowship involves Christ, it’s more than a joint venture. What’s actually achieved through fellowship is spiritual unity with the Lord, a deep inner relationship meant to glorify Him.
“23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
With this in mind, how can we define fellowship so we can explain it to others?
Fellowship is a relationship among believers that’s Christ centered, and intended to empower God’s servants to accomplish His will on earth and bring His glory with their lives.
