Two Kinds of Fellowship

What do you think of when you hear the word “fellowship“?  I did a google search for a definition of fellowship and it said, “a friendly association with others based upon common interests”.  That’s a pretty good definition and something we all need–friendly associations with others.

However, the Bible gives fellowship a much deeper meaning.  In scripture, to fellowship is to share intimate thoughts and feelings at a spiritual level.  As I said we certainly need friendly associations formed around common interests, but we need this spiritual communion with others even more so.

God said in the second chapter of the bible, “it is not good for man to be alone”.  So its important that we develop and maintain friendships.  And among our friends we should always be aware that God desires for some of those ‘friendly associations’ to mature into a deep spiritual connection.  So invest some time in others and God will help you build the rich relationships you need.

Be blessed in your journey!
