When I think about the word fellowship, I am reminded of the need to gather together. It’s one of the five directives listed within the great commission. I like to use the G-Words since they are easy to remember—to go, to grow, to gather, to give and to glorify. The Apostle Paul beseeched us to not forsake gathering together. ‘Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.’ Hebrews 10:25 Jesus reminds us too, that the world will recognize us by the way we love Him and by the way we treat each other. So, fellowship must be an important assignment for us.

On the night before he was to complete his mission assignment on earth, Jesus prayed the most beautiful prayer, not only for himself but for his disciples as well. Matter of fact, he included all of us that would ever come to know Him through the message of the disciples and the early church. In this passionate, heartfelt prayer, Jesus cried out to His Father saying, “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. John 17:20-21

Can’t you feel the love and compassion in the wording of this plea for us? You see, God wants us to enjoy the same closeness and fellowship with Him and with each other that He enjoys with His Father. I’m talking about a real, personal and intimate relationship—unlike anything you could ever hope to experience without Him. Are you with me?

The first and most important step to creating and building real fellowship with each other is to obtain and maintain a close and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is then and only then that we can experience real community and authentic love and fellowship one with another.

Lovely message that we all need to hear. Expanding this with a bit of personal example might make it a bit more engrossing. Thank you for sharing your heart in such a poignant way.

I could really hear your heart expressed throughout this. We as believers need to hear this message over and over.
